Newby Investment Castings is a lost wax casting foundry which incorporates W.J. Hooker, originally established in 1959, and is now part of the Newby Foundries Group.
We use the lost wax casting process to create complex precision investment castings that would otherwise be manufactured by expensive machined or fabricated methods. Lost wax castings can also replace low volume die castings as tooling is significantly less expensive.
The team of experts at Newby Investment Castings offer a range of services advising on design, material specification or changes to eliminate machining or design improvements capable of achieving greater savings and product performance.
Our investment casting process will provide reliable repeatability for near net shapes and details including corporate graphics, lettering and complex designs, thereby significantly reducing machining costs, particularly where high value and exotic materials are required.
As well as providing low start up and tooling costs Newby Investment Castings can offer high or low volume production from the initial cast component to batch made production assemblies.
As one of the leading manufacturers of lost wax castings, Newby Investment Castings supply to various industries including the Automotive, Petrochemical, Medical, Military, Food, Aerospace, Offshore Marine and Valve sectors.
Having provided our services for over 50 years, Newby Investment Castings also supply to some fascinating sectors such as Bell Makers, Equine Veterinary Surgeons, Fantasy Armourers, Artists, Formula 1 and luxury car restoration.
Our precision lost wax castings can replace die castings, fabrications and parts machined from solid for many applications resulting in significant cost savings.
