ELITE Process - Investment Casting

Dean Group are pleased to announce our NEW high integrity aluminium investment casting process, which is now available to our valued clients. Utilising our innovative ELITE casting process, we can offer precise, high strength aluminium parts to suit your requirement, working closely with clients in the aerospace, military, electronics and motorsport industries, just to name a few.

Many of these industries can find some difficulty in sourcing the high integrity gas tight parts that they require, with high costs being involved in the majority of cases. At Dean Group, we specialise in providing fully traceable parts that are made at our own foundry in the UK. Using our all-new ELITE process – which bears many similarities to the well-known SOPHIA® casting process of Aeromet – we are able to produce precise, complex shapes, parts with enhanced Miro structures and are fully traceable at competitive prices.

Elite Process Investment Casting

The ELITE process has many similarities to the well-known SOPHIA® casting process, achieving good mechanical properties in aluminium Investment castings that do not require hipping. The micro structure is tight and free from porosity and making the produced parts gas tight with consistently high range tensile results.

Our ELITE process has many advantages, including:

  • Made in the UK at our foundry in Manchester
  • Gas tight
  • Thin wall section parts
  • Consistent high range tensile results
  • Enhanced microstructure – eliminating the need for “hipping”
  • Fully traceable individual parts
  • A wide range of size and weight capabilities
  • Consistent and repeatable
  • Good surface finishes
  • Flexible production volumes

The Elite Investment Casting Process

These high integrity aluminium castings are naturally sought after in industries where weight, strength, and casting soundness are a concern, and traceable quality is essential. This can result in high production costs.

However, Dean Group are not carrying the elevated overhead costs associated with AS9100 which some of our competitors hold, meaning that parts produced by ELITE are at a uniquely competitive cost. As well as this, Dean Group also hold the BSI ISO 9001:2008 accreditation, meaning that you can trust us to produce high quality castings to meet your requirements.
