Investment casting is an ancient industrial technique which is also called lost-wax casting, one of the oldest known metal-forming techniques. From over 5,000 years ago, when beeswax formed the patterns, to today’s high-tech. waxes, such as refractory materials and specialist alloys, the castings allow the manufacture of components with accuracy,  versatility, repeatability, and integrity in different types of metals and high performance alloys.
