Methods for making various metallic alloys such as nickel, cobalt and/or iron based superalloys, stainless steel alloys, titanium alloys and titanium aluminide alloys into engineering components by melting of the alloys in a vacuum or under a low partial pressure of inert gas and subsequent casting of the melt in the graphite molds under vacuum or low partial pressure of inert gas are provided, the molds having been fabricated by machining high density, high strength ultrafine grained isotropic graphite, wherein the graphite has been made by isostatic pressing or vibrational molding.

Title
