What is Vacuum Casting?
Vacuum Casting is a low-cost but reliable way for making a low volume of high quality prototypes based on a master model. This highly versitile method uses cast silicone molds. It is undoubtedly the most economical production process for small series: prototype parts, pre-series.
A master model is created using by sterelithography process;
The master model is then placed into casting gate which is filled with silicone
Cut into two parts
Resin is poured into the silicone mold
gate and risers removed from the mold
