Moulding & Casting Services
Mould Making and Resin Casting
Silicon rubber molds, in combination with epoxy resin or composite casting, can be utilized to create a wide range of new and replica parts. From one-of-a-kind items to small-batch production runs, we’ve got you covered. Resin casts are a cost-effective way to cast tiny to medium-sized things. It is made by mixing two separate liquid parts and pouring them into a mold, where they harden and produce an identical cast reproduction of whatever was used to build the mold.
Fields of Application for Casting Resin
- Casting of all kinds of molds
- Production of epoxy resin jewelry
- Molded parts in the field of model making
- Furniture such as epoxy resin tables and resin river tables
- Filling cracks and holes in wood
- Epoxy resin floors in living areas or garage floors
Whatever your objective, we can produce multiple models from a single prototype, lowering unit costs and enabling the client to see multiple finishes as part of the development process in a cost-effective way. We can do resin casting in any color, opaque castings, water clear, and in high detail.
- What is Resin?
Epoxy resin or resin is a material that can be used for many different purposes and is created by mixing two components that are matched to each other. If the liquid resin is mixed with a suitable hardener, a chemical reaction is set in motion that usually lasts several hours.
- What is Epoxy Resin Used for?
- Cut-resistant sealing of worktops in the kitchen
- Pieces of epoxy resin and wood such as cutting boards
- Jewelry made of epoxy resin
- Epoxy resin art objects such as resin art pictures
- The casting of molds and figures of all kinds
- Resin Casting of artifacts and materials in resin
- Are Epoxy Resin Coatings Waterproof?
After curing, epoxy resin is and remains waterproof, provided it is not penetrated by holes or cracks. This versatile material remains waterproof for many years, even in the long term.
Experts in Vacuum Forming
Vacuum forming is a cost-effective way to make parts in a variety of configurations in small and big volumes. The controlled heating of plastic materials to a temperature where they are flexible enough to be transformed by the shape of a mold with the help of suction is involved in this process. The air pressure differential formed by drawing a vacuum between the heated plastic sheet and the mold forces the heated plastic sheet against the mold in this approach.
- Large parts or multi-part uses
- Moderate annual volumes
- Tight tooling budget
- Rapid product development
Our team of experienced engineers is highly knowledgeable in regulatory standards and material selection – acting as your partner in determining the ideal manufacturing solution for your budget and demands, whether you’re looking for bespoke packaging, housings, trays, or panels. We use materials mainly like ABS, PC/ABS, HDPE, TPO, HIPS, or PVC/Acrylic in Vacuum forming.
- What shapes can be vacuum formed?
When vacuum forming, there are minimal restrictions; nonetheless, it is advisable not to have too many undercuts and to have a shallow taper on vertical faces if possible.
- Is vacuum forming cost effective?
Due to the comparatively cheap cost of tooling compared to other processes, vacuum forming is recognized as the most cost effective way of making plastic components, especially for low to medium production runs.
- What thickness can I vacuum form?
Depending on the application, 1-6mm is usually sufficient.
- Does the material get thinner during vacuum forming?
Yes, thinning occurs, but it can be considerably decreased by making minor design changes and using different vacuum forming procedures.
- What tolerances can be achieved?
Tolerances of 0.10 to 0.25mm might be predicted when using expert pattern makers and cnc machines for more sophisticated tooling.
