        This is a question about iinvestment casting: Does any of
 you know what technically SOPHIA consists in? It is a method to increase the
 solidification rate of the castings, but I cannot get any more information
 about it (is it a device where the shells are located to freeze?, does it
 consisit in location of coolers in the shell?, or.....?).

Dear Ms. Garcia:

You can find out more about this process at:

Try searching the web using the boolean expression (sophia and "investment
casting") for additional info. AltaVista will turn up more pages.

This is an investment casting procees developed by Cercast of Canada that
uses an SLA pattern. I'm attaching the copy from the page above to the copy
of this letter I'm sending to you for your convenience.
