Block Process

This niche process involves generating a plaster mould in a vacuum chamber, around a wax pattern.

The fluid mould material, used in the process lends itself to complex castings with thin wall sections and parts with internal galleries / delicate pin arrays or other intricate details.

This method produces low levels of component inherent stress and greater geometic stability than the shell process due to the slower metal cooling rate after pouring.

There is a significantly lower level of mechanical energy required to remove the mould material as opposed to the shell process after casting. This reduces the risk of distortion, enabling very thin wall-sections and delicate pin arrays to be cast successfully.


Components contained within 650mm x 650mm x 650mm envelope.
Casting weight up to 10Kg
