Vacuum Casting Plastic
Vacuum casting or cast urethanes is a perfect solution for production quality parts without the cost
or lead time required for production tooling.
Vacuum casting enables you to quickly recreate tens of parts in production like materials allowing you to create multiple
reproductions of a part for market or in-house testing. At Winten we can cast parts as large and small, everything from
O-ring size all the way up to 2m long car bumpers. We have a massive range of materials available for your projects.
Developing prototypes, low volume production, rubber parts, market testing, rapid iterations
How it works
Master model – CNC machined or 3D printed via SLA or SLS or Original Sample
Silicone tool – liquid silicone is poured around the master model and cured. Once dry the master is cut from the mold to leave the cavity
Castings – the resin is poured into the cavity to create a production like replicate.
Advantages of Vacuum casting
•Great for low volumes
•Low upfront investment
•Massive range of materials
•Similar production surface over molds
•Size from O-ring up to 2 meter car bumpers
