Lost-foam casting (LFC) is a type of evaporative-pattern casting process that is similar to lost-wax casting with the exception of the usage of foam for the pattern instead of wax. This process takes advantage of the low boiling point of foam to simplify the lost-wax casting process by removing the need to melt the wax out of the mold.Patterns are made using:
- die casting;
- expanded polystyrene modelling (time-saving method).
This technology is universal and used for small-scale and single-piece manufacturing high-quality casts of frequently changing models.
LFC method is widely used in the United States, Japan and European counties. More than 30% of casting products on developed markets is made using the LFC method.
