Shape Errors, Internal Porosity, Linear Dimensions Accuracy and Allowances for the Machining of Castings Made in the Replicast CS Process

Open access


This research presents comprehensive assessment of the precision castings quality made in the Replicast CS process. The evaluation was made based on quality of the surface layer, shape errors and the accuracy of the linear dimensions. Studies were carried out on the modern equipment, among other things a Zeiss Calypso measuring machine and profilometer were used. Obtained results allowed comparing lost wax process models and Replicast CS process.
