Vacuum Casting

LOW VOLUME AND PROTOTYPING SOLUTIONS

Why Vacuum Casting?

When your brief is for pre-launch testing, low volume manufacture of simple parts or concept models and prototypes, you want a reliable, cost-effective alternative to injection moulding.

Vacuum casting fits that bill. Tooling starts with a 3D printed master pattern, and the tool itself comprises silicone. Both of these phases are fast and economical. The resultant parts are exceptionally high-quality; their attributes are comparable to injection-moulded parts and can be formed with very tight tolerances. The process lends itself well to a variety of finishes, including colour options and texturing.

We want to help you to keep your prototyping costs down without compromising on quality. We have a dedicated vacuum casting facility with multiple machines and myriad rigid and flexible materials, including those with high temperature, V0 rated flame retardant, UV stability, glass-filled, and chemical resistant properties. It’s our mission to deliver on quick turnaround times, exceptional quality and outstanding levels of customer service.

  • Vacuum casting enables reproduction of very fine detailing; finished parts can be painted and overmoulded

  • Suitable for low production runs to 100s of parts – the low cost of tooling results in cost efficiencies above those of injection moulding

  • Rapid turnaround of parts, especially when 3D printing is used to create pattern masters, saving on development time and reducing costs

  • A wide variety of casting resins emulating the look, feel and performance of injection moulding and engineering materials
