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.
- Large rooms
- Rigid: close to ABS, PP
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
- 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
