Rim : an additive manufacturing process

PROCESS FOR MANUFACTURING PROTOTYPES

By creating an epoxy or silicone resin mold (previously from a master model made in Stereolithography) a prototype can then take shape.
The tool imprint is then filled with Polyurethane resin, using a specific machine.
Tool life can range from 30 to 100 pieces; it essentially depends on the geometry of your parts.

USES

  • Pre-series
  • Large rooms

MATERIALS

  • Rigid: close to ABS, PP

LEAD TIME 

2 to 3 weeks for tools with a production of 10 to 30 pieces per week

OUR STRONG POINTS

  • Panel of technical resins
  • Overmolding or fitting of metal inserts
  • The sub-assemblies are always made with your functionality criteria
  • Realistic surface finish: shiny, satin, grained, obtained by paint finish
  • CEM painting

ADVANTAGES

  • High impact and friction resistance
  • Good surface appearance
  • Good “hanging” of polyurethane paints
  • “Good material” prototypes (close to plastic injection)
  • Lower investment than compression or injection
