Vacuum casting is a simple and quick process to produce small batch items with high quality prototypes, each silicone mold can duplicate 25x times.
Urethane casting process is good choice for parts with complex shape, the silicone moulding give an optimal result on sharp corner and thin wall.
Vacuum casting allows reproduice any kind of parts, material with large range of properties, finishing, parts sizes help you to acheive any functional and esthetic parts.
Vacuum Casting is mainly used for on low volumes of production, each moulds are able to duplicate 20 to 40 parts, vacuum casting cost is very frendly and a great alternative to plastic injection molding.

Rapid prototyping with vacuum casting
What is rapid prototyping ? Rapid prototyping means something like "Fast Star Rapid Prototype construction".
A collection of methods that use three-dimensional computer-aided design ( CAD) data to quickly manufacture a scale model of a physical component or assembly, also called rapid prototyper.
Rapid prototyping plastic parts that are manufactured with the vacuum casting process are characterized by a very high-quality prototypes with a great wall thickness and can be manufactured by using low volume silicone molding within very short production times.
Pre-series prototype as a market test
Fully Functional models

Vacuum Casting FAQ
over others manufacturing process ?
plastic short run manufacturing which is a sweet spot between
3D printing (ex: rapid protoyping) and Injection Molding (ex: mass production).
Is the mold my exclusive property ?
will be used only uppon your request.
Common life span is about 20 to 35 times casted parts, but it's also depend on shape and complexity of the mold.
transparent parts ?
Depending on your application we can make the parts fully opaque, translucent or completely transparent.
can you help me to fix it ?
If you having an more deep trouble just, let us know we will schedule one call with our engineering team and workout your issues.
can you make it work ?
can you supply it?
Vacuum Casting Cost
The cost of vacuum casted parts will depend on many parameters like material, size, post processing and more.
Prototyping (3D printing / CNC Machining)
Tooling cost : 0 USD
Cost by units : 230 USD
Total : 15 * 230 = 3450 USD
Low volume manufacturing (Silicon molding / Urethane casting / Vacuum casting):
Tooling cost : 1000 USD
Cost by units : 35 USD
Total : 15 * 35 + 1000 = 1525 USD
Mass manufacturing (injection molding) :
Tooling cost : 4500 USD
Cost by units : 2.65 USD
Total : 15 * 2.65 + 4500 = 4539.75 USD

How vacuum casting process work ?
Vacuum Casting Process
Low-volume production silicone mold manufacturing technique is a great alternative of injection molding for any part dimensions and ideally suited for low volume batch productions and good alternative to 3d printing. No matter your parts purpose, polyurethane casting is an affordable solution to launch a new product, showroom display, or you want to validate your design, usage, feeling, test samples, or for your crowdfunding campaigns, our team will be by your side to achieve your goal. Vacuum casting work by 4 simple steps :
Step 1 : The Master Model
Also called a master Model In most cases, it is produced parts using stereolithography and therefore follows the various stages of this manufacturing process. The part is cleaned, sanded and / or sanded according to the desired finish on the parts of the series.
Step 2 : The Tools
The master pattern is placed in a tool called casting box often made of wood or plastic parts and then liquid silicone is poured around it then, the casting box is heated until silicone is fully cured. A pause time is then necessary to allow the silicone molds to harden, then the wooden tools which surround the silicone are removed . The mold is cut into several parts following the pre-established parting lines and then the master pattern is gently removed.
Step 3: Duplication
The silicone mold is closed and is placed in a vacuum chamber for removing all the air entrapment. The casting resins is then carried out from vacuum chamber of vacuum casting machine, the parts are removed from the silicone mould and the process is done again for multiple dupliction.
Step 4: Suface Finishing (optional)
Vacuum casting process gives a smooth result out of the box, Post-processing is performed after molding as an optional process, It is often necessary to obtain a higth quality fully finished parts. Post processing that is often used are overmolding, soft-touch, glossy paint, transparent, Laser engraving, Screen printing, Tampography
