Investment Castings

Investment castings design and manufacturing is a core competence of Discover Global. Our casting foundries in Asia are able to manufacture tight tolerance precision investment castings for many different industries. These investment castings are high quality and a very cost effective manufacturing solution. Our casting foundries in Asia work closely with our US engineers to produce high-quality, precision, repeatable investment castings.

Investment castings are one of the more popular methods for producing repeatable metal parts with significant cast-in features or details. Because investment castings or lost wax castings are labor intensive, we are able to utilize our lower cost structures in Asia to provide a low cost final product. We are also able to offer finished machining, plating and other secondary operations for your lost wax castings with little additional cost. Manufacturing engineers in the US develop setup and manufacturing processes for our foundries in Asia to maximize yields and lower overall costs.

Our foundries in Asia use American style investment casting techniques that provide greater details on the surface of the casting, and the solidification pathway of the entire tree is consistently controlled. We also use injection presses for our wax parts instead of pour molds. The dimensional stability from part to part of injected wax is more repeatable than pour molds.

Our casting foundries produce investment castings in the following materials:

  • Stainless steel
  • Steel
  • Aluminum

  • Nickel alloy
  • Cobalt alloy
  • Iron

Our foundries in Asia are able to produce close tolerance or precision castings, with value added machining, plating, high finish and assembly if needed. This allows us to produce a variety of investment castings for the industrial and energy related industries, including pressure-containing components.

Our warehouse and logistics centers in Asia and our headquarters in Youngstown, Ohio can make sure all of your delivery needs are met. In addition, our headquarters in Youngstown, Ohio can warehouse product and provide next day service for larger volume forecasted orders. We have routine shipments of containers coming into the United States in order to provide competitive pricing on small and large orders.
