Investment casting is a manually intensive process that takes much longer than other casting methods. In fact, it’s a 5,000-year-old metalworking process, yet even using the advanced machinery and materials available today, many foundries haven’t improved on the same core methods used for centuries, delivering on lead times that span months.
At Signicast, we’ve revolutionized virtually every aspect of investment casting. As the largest commercial investment caster in the world, we’ve developed and refined the most advanced automation process available—Continuous Flow Manufacturing—which, along with our other proprietary automation systems, can slash lead times to as little as seven days.
Our proprietary investment casting process is engineered to deliver at unmatched speed, allowing you to get components faster and reducing the amount of inventory you need to hold. With our in-house processes and technology, Signicast can produce parts of virtually any level of complexity. And customers can make their best products a reality.
