The company is supplying a beverage industry equipment manufacturer with two versions of these investment cast components. The 3 pound and 4 pound versions of the 316L investment castings were originally produced as fabrications from plate and bar stock. The components were welded together and then machined. By utilizing the investment casting process, the subassembly was able to be produced in one-piece and then finished machined. This process change resulted in a cost reduction to the customer as well as becoming a more aesthetically pleasing component.
