Precision and Detail in Every Cast

At Align MFG, we specialize in Lost Wax Investment Casting, a process renowned for its ability to produce components with intricate details and accuracy. Our proficiency in this technique makes us the go-to choice for high-precision and complex projects.

Our Lost Wax Casting Process

  • Mold Design: Every project begins with a custom mold design, ensuring precision from the outset.
  • Wax Mold Creation: We craft detailed wax models that faithfully replicate your design specifications.
  • Wax “Tree” Assembly & Ceramic Coating: Arranging wax models into a tree structure, we then coat them in a ceramic slurry to form a robust mold, prepped for metal pouring.
  • De-Waxing & Pouring: The wax is melted away in a specialized furnace, creating a precise cavity for molten metal pouring, tailored to your material requirements.
  • Refinement & Finishing: Post solidification, each component undergoes cutting, grinding, and machining (using CNC and/or Lathe) for exacting precision. A final coating is applied for durability and aesthetic appeal.
