We use the lost wax process of precision casting. We choose a casting
process appropriate for the part, including vacuum assist. The RP pattern
serves as the wax and is destroyed in the process. We've done many intricate
thin-walled parts in alloys such as A356 and Zamak-3 for example. We don't
publish case studies. We are a commercial foundry.
