Vacuum Casting is a copying technique used for the production of small series of functional plastic parts. Using two-component polyurethanes and silicone molds, Vacuum Casting is known for its fast production of high-quality prototypes or end-use products.
|Standard lead time||Up to 10 copies within 10 days|
|Standard accuracy||± 0.3% (with lower limit on ± 0.3 mm on dimensions smaller than 100 mm)|
|Minimum wall thickness||To ensure that the mold is filled properly, a wall thickness of at least 0.75 mm is necessary. For best results, we recommend a wall thickness of at least 1.5 mm|
|Maximum part dimensions||The size of the mold is limited by the dimensions of the vacuum chamber (1900 x 900 x 750 mm) and by the volume of the product (maximum volume: 10 liters)|
|Typical quantities||Up to 25 copies per mold (depending on the mold’s complexity and the casting materials)|
|Surface structure||High-quality surface finish comparable to injection molding|
