How Does Vacuum Casting Work?

Vacuum Casting begins by producing a master model, typically using Stereolithography or Laser Sintering, with a high-quality surface finish. Then a silicone mold is produced by casting silicone around the master copy, partially under vacuum to avoid air bubbles. After curing, the silicone mold is cut according to pre-defined parting planes and the master is removed, leaving a cavity to make copies.

Why choose Vacuum Casting?

Silicone molding results in high-quality parts comparable to injection-molded components. This makes vacuum casted models especially suitable for fit and function testing, marketing purposes or a series of final parts in limited quantities. Vacuum Casting also lends itself well to a variety of finishing degrees, and we can match the finish you need for your parts.

Materials for Vacuum Casting

We offer an exceptional range of 26 carefully selected polyurethanes that are similar to rubber, PP, ABS and PC. These materials provide an outstanding variety of properties, and offer the possibility to match colors and cast transparent components. If you are looking for a specific finish, our skilled post-production team for Vacuum Casting will match your requirements.

Regularly if one new product is develop by prototyping , and it’s not under the process of  mass production, but also needed a small quantity products to sell in the market , the best choice to save cost from molding is to do the rapid prototyping , use silicone mold (or aluminum mold) to produce small quantity for the trial-produce , or has small quantity products as sample . (silicone rapid prototyping).

All along, "personal customization prototype" have been used as a symbol of identity, so many people expensive looking custom fees from influential, but since the loss of the "kills one thousand of eight hundred" price war also for many store has brought great impact, when in the new model of utmost urgency, 3d palm print mature gradually solve this puzzle, 3d printing can be with a growing number of traditional brands in conjunction with the consumer to link, can be made in accordance with the interests of consumers even more popular products.

With THE 3D printing of have matured and has continued to be refined, and an increasing number of brands TO choose with 3D printing association, this is a signal of the development of the times, the implications are also closer to the life of the products, so in the novel model and business in the context of their own innovation system to strengthen, win situation will be on the market as a whole the beginning of the epidemic, and with resources, in conjunction with precision of the sales cycle and market demand, "personal customization prototype" the product will be more than welcome.
