To enhance or develop new, more diverse precision casting processes, a wide range of pant technology is employed; including wax injection, sanding and embedding equipment, a manually operated de-bedding machine and an ALD, VIM IC 5 S type multi-purpose vacuum casting equipment which operates according to the Bridgman principle. The basic specifications for this equipment are 1.5kg to 50kg casting weight, casting and heater temperatures range from 1700°C, and the maximum shell mould dimensions are 600mm diameter and 750mm height. This new equipment provides improved capabilities for analysing individual process steps, process parameters and solidification profiles and therefore offers new opportunities for influencing the microstructure. A deeper understanding of the process and the extra flexibility of manufacturing permits the process’ industrial applicability to be verified. Furnished with this equipment, enables research into the latest precision (investment) casting processes to be carried out. The development of the process includes all process steps: production of wax models, development of moulding materials, manufacturing of ceramic shell moulds, alloy development and casting methods. For example, the process development involves working with the newest fibre reinforced materials as well as with modern superalloys and other high-performance materials. In addition to this, the process development can be accompanied by simulations at any time.
