vacuum casting process involve?
Vacuum casting(also known as urethane casting or silicone moulding) is a manufacturing method that uses silicone moulds to produce plastic parts in a relatively simple way and without the high costs and high lead times required for steel or aluminium moulds.
Advantages of vacuum
Pieces with excellent finishes at reduced costs
Low Production Levels
Polyurethane (PU) parts produced by vacuum moulding are perfect for low-volume production – when quantities do not justify the investment in expensive injection moulds. As well as for the first series parts that can be produced weeks before the injection mould is ready.
Thanks to the polyurethane casting process and the associated cost-effective tooling, it is simple and cost-effective to achieve a design and part quality approaching production levels. This method is suitable for the prototyping of elastomeric parts similar to silicone, TPA and NBR, and with hardnesses ranging from Shore A 30 to Shore A 90.
A high quality finish makes them ideal for consumer testing, user evaluation and concept models. In addition, it allows unlimited complexity, including internal corners without radii, unachievable with CNC machining, and designs with no demolding or uniform wall thickness that cannot be injection molded.
The pigmented finish, regardless of its matt, satin or glossy texture, is ideal for those parts that may suffer wear due to scratching, so the colour of the part is maintained. The pigment colour can be chosen from both RAL and PANTONE
It is important to note that pigmented colour has a certain colour tolerance,
Painting is a process used to treat the surfaces of plastic and metallic materials. There are three painting options: matte, satin and glossy. This technique significantly improves the visual appearance of the project. It is possible to choose the desired color using the RAL or PANTONE color chart.
The PU- Flexible Polyurethane and PU- Rigid Polyurethane materials offer the option of a transparent finish, which allows light to pass through the part, allowing the contents of the part to be seen. We can resemble the finishes offered by PMMA, PC or transparent silicone.
Upload your CAD files to our platform, saving management and communication time by other means.
The 3D file is always essential for quoting and should only contain one part.
To indicate the threads present on a part you must upload a drawing in .pdf format and assign it to its corresponding part – 3D file.
To use our service it is no longer necessary to invest your time in making all the annotations on the drawings, the 3D file is enough
