Characteristics of casting under vacuum
By casting under vacuum using silicon rubber, we can deliver exact reproductions of trial products made of urethane resin or epoxy resin in short delivery times and at low costs.
A mold can be made with quick turnaround and at a low cost by transcription from a master model
◆ Reproduction can be done by using a resin equivalent to ABS or to PP, or by using silicon rubber or urethane rubber. (Coloring in approximate colors is possible.)
◆ Reproduction of transparent articles equivalent to acrylic resin can be achieved. (Coloring in approximate color is possible.)
◆ Simultaneous casting of insert and outsert parts (metal inserts for screws, terminals, and so forth) is possible.
Materials for casting under vacuum
◆ Urethane resin (equivalent to ABS or PP)
◆ Epoxy resin (equivalent to acrylic resin)
◆ Urethane rubber (hardness 50 to 90 degrees)
◆ Silicon rubber (hardness 30 to 70 degrees)
Coloring is possible in any of the cases above.
Available sizes and delivery times for casting under vacuum
◆ Flat master size 1200×650×50
◆ Boxed master size 600×600×300
◆ Prototype launch in three days, at the earliest, after completing the master model
Number of reproducible articles by casting under vacuum
◆ About 20 items in the case of urethane resin
◆ About 10 items of transparent articles
Production process for products made by casting under vacuum
In a short delivery time and at a low cost, by casting under vacuum using silicon rubber, we can deliver precise reproductions of prototypes made of urethane resin and epoxy resin. We can also perform casting of silicon rubber and urethane rubber. Colored casting as well as simultaneous casting using insert parts are both possible.
