Nickel-Base Alloy Casting
Nickel-base alloys contain nickel, chromium and molybdenum and are known for their high strength and resistance to heat, corrosion and wear. They are also easily welded and fabricated and provide superior resistance to cracking and stress corrosion. Investment castings made from nickel-based alloys are commonly used in applications involving high heat or corrosive operating environments such as aerospace, marine and chemical industries.
Precision Investment Casting Nickel Base Alloys
Investment casting produces tight tolerances and a smooth finish and is an ideal process for complex designs. It is a cost-effective and efficient solution and is used create components for a wide range of industries including aerospace, medical, military, marine and more.
Engineered Precision Casting Company has a long history producing nickel-based castings, with sizes up to 16 x 16 in. and 150 lbs. We work with over 75 ferrous and non-ferrous air-melt alloys and perform all investment casting in-house to deliver fast and reliable service.
