A 3D-printed master model is placed into a container and covered with liquid silicone rubber. Then, it’s put into a vacuum chamber, creating a detailed mold.
Liquid material is poured into the mold cavity. The mold is then placed under vacuum to remove any air bubbles, and the material is left to harden.
Finally, the mold is opened, and the replica of the mold is removed. This process can be repeated about 30 times per mold, quickly and easily creating parts.
Vacuum casting is typically used for small-batch production, as it’s cost-effective and fast. Vacuum casting is often used as an alternative to injection molding when production numbers are low.
Furthermore, the smooth finish and wide range of colors make vacuum casting especially convenient for high-quality end-use parts.
