Vacuum Casting Service

Vacuum casting is used for generative rapid prototyping for the optimization of quality and massive reduction in delivery times. Compared to conventional manufacturing methods this process saves time and delivers cost reductions up to 97%. The vacuum casting proved to be a perfect solution for the rapid prototyping worldwide. In addition, the easy application and handling is another reason for its success.

What Is Vacuum Casting?

Vacuum casting is a highly versatile technology capable of producing parts in a range of polyurethane (PU) resins and cast nylon, create, replicate and replace engineering polymers for prototypes and end use parts. The manufacturing technique is ideally suited to low volume batch production when injection moulding is not cost beneficial; typically a single mould can be used to produce up to 50 parts before re-tooling is required.

How Does Vacuum Casting Work?

Vacuum Casting begins by producing a master model, typically using Stereolithography or Laser Sintering, with a high-quality surface finish. Then a silicone mold is produced by casting silicone around the master copy, partially under vacuum to avoid air bubbles. After curing, the silicone mold is cut according to pre-defined parting planes and the master is removed, leaving a cavity to make copies.

Silicone molding results in high-quality parts comparable to injection-molded components. This makes vacuum casted models especially suitable for fit and function testing, marketing purposes or a series of final parts in limited quantities. Vacuum Casting also lends itself well to a variety of finishing degrees, and we can match the finish you need for your parts.
