How to Reduce Costs Through Precision Casting

Do you want to reduce the purchase cost of metal castings through precision casting? Then this article will tell you how Besser casting reduces costs through precision casting.

Precision casting can reduce product lead time by using a casting process that produces a high-quality product that requires less work and casting after machining. Precision precision casting with custom services includes testing – ensuring the final product is tested for defects and machined to perfection if necessary.

Modern precision casting is a mechanized, industrialized process capable of producing precise, precise units with tight tolerances, thinner walls and smooth surface finishes - all of which help reduce weight, lead times and costs. The precision casting process can also improve the functionality of the part.

Precision casting allows for part redesign, replication of complex shapes, or conversion from expensive multi-piece weldments or fabrication to a single piece, all of which offer better precision casting cost options and reduced lead times.


Precision precision casting is a delicate manufacturing process with numerous advantages.

The process consists of several steps - creating an injected wax replica of the part, fitting the part to the gate/tree, and then forming the ceramic mold around the wax mold. The wax is then melted with steam and pressure, and the molten metal is poured into a heated ceramic shell. The result is a sacrificial tool that allows high part definition in ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Compared with high pressure die casting molds or plastic molds, aluminum wax molds have a much longer lifespan. precision casting is a process with tighter tolerances than sand casting or permanent mold processes, while allowing internal channels/undercuts to be cast in place with an excellent surface finish. Overall, this process offers many opportunities to reduce the total cost of ownership.

Simply put, precision precision casting is a process that creates multiple near-net-shape features that require far less machining than parts created by other casting and manufacturing methods. Reducing the number of secondary operations automatically saves time and money.

With a near-final molding process, parts can often be removed directly from the mold. This means less machining and cost savings. Also, tools can be cheaper and have a longer lifespan than other processes. The biggest production cost savings are often long repetitive runs, where the tool can be used over and over again.

So how does this process reduce production costs and save money? Quite simply, the process reduces the amount of material wasted in the production of finished parts, reduces the number of stages required to produce finished parts, and thus reduces the amount of parts that are transported during production.

The design freedom that precision casting gives engineers reduces the need for machining processes. In fact, precision casting can be used to manufacture parts with complex designs without having to rely on subtractive manufacturing methods, which means less material waste. Compared to solid processing (a process in which material waste is a by-product), significant production cost savings can be achieved. The cost savings are so substantial that machinists commission an investment foundry to produce castings for them to "finish" on behalf of their customers. By manufacturing components as precision castings, many companies reduce the supply chain links associated with the project's production process.

Although castings may have to go through some additional steps to reach the necessary production standards, the number of stages involved in production can be significantly reduced. Intricate features such as undercuts, heat sinks, cooling spots, PCB rails, seal grooves, fine detailing and lettering can be produced through this process, reducing the need for post-cast machining. The fine 3.2 micron "as-cast" surface finish that can be achieved by precision casting is usually sufficient to meet the standards required for most applications. In cases where it is not, surface treatments can be used to improve the finish of the casting. precision casting allows a product to be manufactured to 90%, if not 100%, of its finished state.
