Today’s video shows the complete lost foam casting process.
One of the advantages to this process as compared to other casting processes is there is no need for draft to be designed into the part. This makes the cast part a near net shape which is mass and material optimised as well as reducing the need for machining operations to achieve an ideal final part.
It is also possible to make parts with more complex geometries that would otherwise be impossible with alternative casting technologies. This offers part design flexibility and the opportunity to combine multiple parts into a single casting.
