The Method of Casting into a Ceramic Mold and Its Advantages

The ceramic mold casting method is derived from the precision casting method, and the advantages are that different models can be reused and the method can be applied with standard foundry facilities.

In Which Cases is the Ceramic Mold Casting Method Preferred?

Ceramic mold casting, Precision Castings has no limit in size and complex shape, especially in high temperature melting metals, high surface quality, precise dimensions, and it is possible to produce perfect parts. For this reason, ceramic mold casting is preferred in cases where it is not possible to use wax models in terms of size or it is not appropriate in terms of cost and time to invest in the metal mold used in the production of the wax model in terms of the number of parts to be produced.

What is the Difference between the Ceramic Mold Casting Method from the Precision Casting Method?

The method of casting into a ceramic mold includes mold materials, cast metal alloys, the resulting casting quality, etc. although it is similar to the precision casting method in terms of features, its main difference is that the models are reusable, as in traditional sand casting methods.

How is the Ceramic Mold Casting Method Performed?

Permanent molds are used in ceramic mold casting. As in precision casting, molds can be spent in ceramic mold casting.

Its making :

Ceramic slurry is poured into the mold.
Then, after the steps described above, the mold is then removed.
Volatile substances (volatiles) are removed with the help of a blower.
Then it is baked on a January stove at a temperature of 1000 ° C.
The mold has now become resistant to high temperature.

This process is very expensive, but it allows the production of the part to very fine details, with a smooth surface and very high dimensional stability.
