RIM Moulding

 

MANUFACTURING PROCESS

An epoxy resin or silicon mould is created out of a SLA master.

The tool is then filled with Polyurethane resin, with the aid of a specific machine.

Life of the tool can stretch from 30 to 100 parts , depending on your part geometry.

USES

  • Pre-series production
  • Large-sized parts
  • Specialised machine casings, ULV0

CONTENTS

  • Rigid: near ABS, PP

LEAD TIME

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

OUR STRENGTHS

  • Range of technical resins 
  • Over-moulding or fitting of metal inserts
  • Sub-assemblies are always manufactured to your functional specifications
  • Realistic surface finish : shiny, satin-finish, grained, …
  • CEM painting

ADVANTAGES

  • High resistance to shock and friction
  • Good surface appearance
  • Good “hanging” of polyurethane paints
  • Prototypes “good material” (similar to plastic injection)
  • Investment smaller than the compression or injection
