- Zirconium castings are made from electronic patterns using and graphite moulds and lost foam technology.
The technology using electronic patterns secure castings with
- Reduced time to manufacture
- Reduced total manufacturing costs
- Improved cast tolerances with lower unit weight
- Castings of high integrity and dimensional accuracy
- Appropriate surface finish and enhanced letter definition
- Opportunities for one-off and small series production
- Drawings can be revised without any cost implications
- No pattern storage or maintenance costs
