Driving production benefits through conversion from machining to casting

This case study highlights how Sylatech’s lost wax investment casting solution excels in the production of small, lightweight, and intricately detailed parts, and why it’s also an ideal choice for applications where precision and performance are paramount.

Why did Atlas Copco choose Sylatech’s casting process?

  • Thin-wall castings with a wall thickness as fine as 0.2mm
  • Lightweight parts, as little as 1g
  • Super-fine surface finish of 0.8 micrometres
  • Complex detail on internal and external features
  • Castings with subsequent CNC machining operations
  • In-house tooling capability.

In addition to our lost-wax casting capability, we also offer an additive prototyping service, affording designers and engineers the ability to receive actual components to test and validate in just 72 hours.
