Aluminum is an ideal material for a variety of castings processes, including investment casting, die casting, sand casting and permanent mold casting.

It is a material well-known for its high strength-to-weight ratio, which makes it an ideal material for countless casting applications. Heat treating can be employed to give it greater strength, ductility, corrosion resistance, and machinability.

Avalon Precision Metalsmiths is a leader in lost wax aluminum casting. When using the investment casting process for aluminum parts, we utilize resistance melting and extensive de-gassing methods to pour aluminum in NDT levels up to Class 1, Grade A (Grade B for production). We maintain tight tolerances and perfect repeatability from the first part to the last, for parts weighing just ounces up to 100 pounds, and in any quantities you require.

Aluminum Grades:
319…356…357…535 Almag…713 Tenzalloy

Aluminum investment castings are popular in numerous industries and applications. Medical and dental equipmentfood and dairy, aerospace, military, electronics, and others rely on lost wax casting for aluminum parts and components.

Typical examples of aluminum casted parts include:

  • Heat Sinks
  • Valves
  • Medical Devices
  • Levers
  • Pistol Frames

Investment casting of aluminum enables the casting of complex-geometry parts, with shorter lead times, greater alloy flexibility, tighter dimensional tolerances and better surface finishes, resulting in near-net shape parts that require less machining and other processing than other casting processes.

Avalon Precision Metalsmiths offers lost wax aluminum casting services for customers across the U.S. from its foundries in Cleveland, Ohio, and Markesan, Wis.

In addition to its extensive domestic expertise in aluminum investment castings, Avalon Precision Metalsmiths can provide high-quality aluminum castings via die casting, sand casting and permanent mold casting and investment casting through offshore casting partners.
