Stainless steel investment casting
Stainless steel is a ferrous alloy containing chromium, which provides a protective layer against staining and corrosion. It is highly corrosion resistant and wear resistant, provides excellent mechanical ability and well known for its aesthetic appearance. It performs well in liquid environments and provides heat resistance at high temperatures. There are numerous types of stainless steel and each contains a different chemical composition. The composition affects mechanical properties and determines whether the material can be further strengthened through heat treatment.
For investment casting applications requiring corrosion resistance and high strength, stainless steel casting is an ideal choice. The stainless steel investment casting process is used to create components for a range of industries including aerospace, petrochemical, medical, automotive, and food and dairy.
Because of the material’s unique physical properties, stainless steel castings are also popular in a wide range of applications, especially those in severe environments. Common markets for stainless steel investment castings include oil and gas, fluid power, food and dairy, hardware and locks, agriculture, and many more. Some typical products in stainless steel: Valve bodies, Pumps, Housings ,Gears, Bushings, Brackets, Arms, Handles, Marine equipment, Medical devices. Stainless Steel Grades:
