Professional precision casting investment foundries like Shelmet Precision Casting, Inc, create a variety of metal castings in sizes from fractions of an ounce to 20 pounds or more. Different types of investment casting and precision casting have dated back a few thousands of years. Almost the same methods of melting metals, creating simple dies for multiple instances, and creating the finished metal casting used very similar techniques long ago. Highly detailed castings make investment castings the best choice for producing finished metal castings often produced from various alloys. Artworks of copper and bronze and even gold were created using precision casting techniques, because these metals and simple metal alloys were more easily obtainable.
Wax Room: pattern waxes, soluble waxes, specialty waxes, wax reclamation and recycling products, wax pattern cleaner and pattern wetting solution
Refractories: fused silica, tabular alumina, fused brown alumina, alumina silicates, molochite, white alumina, sand & flours, zirconia, plaster, fiber enhanced refractories and carbon stucco
Binders: binders, silica, gravity chart, wetting agents and other additives
Crucibles: crucibles and pour cups
Metals: scrap and copper, brass, steel, nickel, cobalt and other alloys
Of course each casting company will have their own particular combinations of casting equipment, depending on the types of metals and alloys they specialize in and on whether their focus is investment casting, die casting, sand casting or other casting operations.

Investment casting parts and structures have high strength and mechanical properties, and are seldom susceptible to worn out fatigue. The mechanical properties and micro-structure of the alloys can be easily controlled by the setting time, as rapid cooling techniques produce excellent strength casting parts.
