Vacuum casting

 

MANUFACTURING PROCESS

A silicon mould is created out of a SLA master.

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

Life of the tool can stretch from 6 to 30 parts , depending on your part geometry, but also on the resin used.

USES

  • Pre-series production
  • Realistic parts (appearance, colour, material, transparency…)
  • Specialised machine casings*

FINISHES

  • Complete deburring of parts and assembly validation
  • Paint finishing

CONTENTS

  • Elastomer: between 35 to 95 Shore
  • Rigid: near ABS, PA, PP, PC, HDPE

LEAD TIME

4 to 6 working days for the tools, then 2 to 3 parts a day

OUR STRONG POINTS

  • Wide range of technical resins
  • Casts bi-material (soft / hard)
  • Molding or fitting of metal inserts
  • Transparent parts
  • The vast majority of these materials can be dyed in the mass 
  • A realistic surface finish: gloss, satin, grained, frosted …
  • CEM Painting
  • In the case of subsets, we ensure the functionality and assembly

ADVANTAGES

  • Possibility to use flexible materials, transparent, rigid, with mechanical and thermal characteristics approaching the materials used in series
  • The finish of the moldings is very close to injected parts
  • Possibility to overmolding and adding inserts
  • Part is tinted in the mass

PRODUCTION MACHINES (mm)

  • 3 MCP 001 machines : 400 x 400 x 400
  • 1 MCP 003 machine: 560 x 650 x 600
  • 1 MCP 004 machine : 900 x 750 x 600
