performed by experienced casting specialists, investment castings
offers a combination of features which can translate to cost-saving
Limitations to design are very few. Investment casting process

machining operations are reduced because of the high geometrical
complexity and tight tolerances that can be reached with investment
casting. In many cases the casting is ready to be assembled as
it is. This can lead to a significant cost reduction.
TOLERANCES AND FINE DETAILS Close dimensional tolerances are
possible with investment castings. The best tolerance range is
±0,5% of nominal dimension, with a minimum of ± 0,1 mm for the
dimensions less than 15 mm.
TOOLING COSTS Metrocast Italiana investment casting tooling
is usually much less expensive than tooling for other casting
VOLUMES FLEXIBILITY Because of the felxibility of its organization,
Metrocast Italiana can produce batches which varies from an annual
quantity of 500 parts to an annual quantity of 200,000 parts or
