Description


Vacuum Casting is a fast and cost-effective prototyping method for producing small numbers of highly accurate polyurethane prototype parts. Characteristics and quality are comparable to the final product. Vaccum casting is typically used to produce small numbers (usually up to 20) of highly accurate polyurethane prototype parts.

Applications


Ideal for functional testing

The mould is made from silicone rubber, and the casting made by pouring resin into the mould in a vacuum chamber. The result is a bubble free casting, ideal for highly accurate, functional plastic prototype parts in very fine detail which replicate patterns, dimensions, profiles and textures.

Versatile

Vacuum Casting can also produce parts with varying degrees of flexibility or rigidity, in a wide range of colours and materials – as well clear parts.

Low volume runs

Vacuum Casting is a rapid and cost-effective prototyping method for producing small numbers of highly accurate polyurethane prototype parts.
