The 3D prototypes produced with this technology are the result of the creation of a silicone mold from a master model first produced in
The silicone mold created from the master model is then filled with polyurethane resin, using a special vacuum casting machine.
Mould life can range from 6 to 30 parts, depending on the geometry of your parts and the polymer used.
This technology is therefore ideal for pre-series or low-volume production runs, which will have the same appearance and mechanical properties as the final product.
The printing dimensions of our largest machine enable us to produce parts up to 1300 x 750 x 800 mm.
At Axis, we use the following materials:
Once your parts have been produced, we can offer you the following finishes:
For the vacuum casting process, it takes 4 to 6 working days to create the mold, followed by production of 2 to 3 parts per working day. Please contact us to obtain the precise deadline for your project.
For the dimensions of your parts, we are able to comply with standard NFT 58-000 normal class.
