Posted 13th July 2017 By Lestercast Limited In

The Investment casting process, also known as ‘Lost Wax Casting’, converts molten metal in a single operation to precision engineered components with minimum wastage of material, energy and subsequent machining.

Investment casting – using the lost wax casting technique – is one of the oldest casting methods known dating back over 5000 years and examples of its uses in producing jewellery and statues can be traced back to use with natural waxes, see below for a little information on it’s origins.
