Molding of Cylinder Head Materials by the Lost-Wax Casting Process Using a Gypsum Mold 2003-01-2746
A resin cylinder head model was produced using a rapid prototype producing system. The resin model was used in the lost-wax casting process instead of a wax model. The casting molded by this method was as precise in both shape and dimensions as a casting produced using a metal mold. This paper describes the manufacturing process of cylinder head material using this method in detail.
