Precision Alloys Replicast® Process Guide

Replicast® Benefits:

 

•  25% lighter castings

•  50% less feed metal

•  40% more castings per melt

•  45% lower machining costs

•  Inert ceramic moulds more compatible with special steel alloys   

•  Improved machineability

•  High as-cast integrity

•  Excellent surface finish (3.2 – 7.6µin; 130 - 300 µm)

•  Consistently high dimensional accuracy (ISO 8062 CT5 – CT8)             

•  Reduced waste

1: CAD Modeling

Computer Aided Design (CAD) model of the part is used to develop the method. A Computer Aided Machining (CAM) program is then used to develop a machining path for the CNC router.
