Lestercast can offer a wide range of metals and alloys in which your product can be manufactured – Aluminium is hugely popular in the production of investment casting components.
Within manufacturing, Aluminium is a widely used material and can be seen all around you in components from everyday household objects to intricate mechanical parts.
Aluminium in investment casting is popular because it is extremely versatile in use and its base-properties. Its relatively low-weight in comparison with other metals enables its use across a wide cross-section of industries and sectors where weight may be integral to it’s finished usage.
Aluminium itself is well-known for it’s corrosion-resistance properties allowing it to be used in circumstances where this is a key factor in its end use.
In it’s basic form, Aluminium is highly recyclable, so in addition to being light for transportation and reusable without losing its fundamental properties; sits well with its environmental and sustainability factors.
