Precision Investment Casting has ancient, worldwide origins. Using lost wax techniques, art objects were cast in gold and bronze by the Egyptians, the Incas and the Chinese, dating back to the earliest records of each culture. In modern times, everything that flies, generates electricity, cuts metal, handles liquids, processes food, examines or patches your body - to name just a few areas - depends on Precision Investment Casting for the key components.
