Wirco, Inc. is a leading provider of investment castings and related services, with a long-standing reputation for quality, precision, and customer service. Based in Champaign, Illinois, Wirco has been in business for over 80 years and has built a loyal customer base across a wide range of industries.

Investment casting is a specialized manufacturing process that involves creating a wax pattern of the desired part, then coating the pattern with a ceramic shell. The shell is then heated to melt and remove the wax, leaving behind a hollow cavity that is filled with molten metal. Once the metal cools and solidifies, the ceramic shell is removed, leaving behind a finished part with precise dimensions and complex shapes that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with other methods.

Wirco's investment casting capabilities are extensive, with a wide range of materials, sizes, and shapes available to meet customers' needs. The company can produce parts ranging in weight from a few ounces to over 100 pounds, and can work with a variety of materials including stainless steel, carbon steel, nickel-based alloys, and more.

In addition to its casting capabilities, Wirco offers a variety of services to support its customers' needs. These include engineering support to help customers optimize their designs for the investment casting process, as well as secondary operations such as machining, heat treating, and testing to ensure that parts meet the required specifications.

Wirco's investment castings are used in a wide range of applications across industries such as aerospace, defense, oil and gas, and medical equipment. The company has a reputation for delivering high-quality parts on time and on budget, and for working closely with customers to understand their needs and provide customized solutions.
