Rapid Prototyping Lestercast

Rapid Prototyping

Lestercast offer a dedicated Rapid Prototyping service (also known as Additive Manufacturing (AM) to assist with our in-house tooling facility.

We can produce wax models in hours and turn them into investment castings in as little as 2-3 weeks. It is approximately 4-6 weeks for conventional casting methods. With 3D printing, accurate complex 3D shapes are produced quickly and efficiently from CAD drawings reducing the overall cost. The complex metal shapes formed through rapid prototyping would potentially be impossible to make via other casting methods.

We Have The Latest Technology….

MAGMASOFT® Simulation Software

We have the latest technology on hand, including simulation software, to make sure that your investment casting project runs as smoothly as possible from design through to delivery.

The Investment Casting process has benefited many industries as an economical route to cast near-net-shape metal parts with high geometric complexity and dimensional accuracy. However, the manufacturing costs and lead-times during production can quickly limit the competitiveness of investment casting as the preferred manufacturing route. Lestercast use MAGMASOFT® investment casting simulation software as a virtual prototyping tool for eliminating physical casting trials. Therefore improving investment casting quality which significantly reduces production costs and time.

Magmasoft is a brilliant scrap prediction and prevention tool. It shows the user how and why an investment casting method may or may not work by providing a variety of result types. Collating this information and applying our extensive knowledge and experience we can ensure the best possible design of casting method is being used before any tools have been cut or any waxes have been produced.

Some benefits of investment casting simulation:

  • Detecting areas of concern with a casting design.
  • Reduction of scrap
  • Continuous improvement of casting quality
  • Shorter production times
  • Predicts filling and solidification behaviour during the casting process.

Reverse Engineering:

At Lestercast, our in-house 3D scanner allows us to scan parts which have no CAD available. We are able to import the 3D scanned CAD model into MAGMASOFT® simulation software, aiding the design process and enabling us to produce the highest quality investment castings in the most cost effective way.

CDP  as Standard

All new products come with a Component Development Plan as standard.
