In our daily life, we often apply to plastic products, in general products, the use of more thermoplastics,
this plastic in industrial production, generally with thermoforming, can be shaped. However, in our product
design, the appearance of some products need to be heat and corrosion resistant, these products need to
use plastic, should have a good thermosetting, the designer in the selection of materials, to take into account
the way the product is formed will be used in the vacuum casting process.
Vacuum casting is mainly used in where
Vacuum casting is mainly used for prototype manufacturing, single-piece production and small batch production,
and can replicate almost all the properties of the injection vowin.cn/en/News/news1251.html' target='_blank'>vowin.cn/' target='_blank'>molding process. It is mainly used to mold
two-component polyurethanes (PUR), which are widely used in different grades, colors and hardnesses. Flexible
silicone molds are machined directly from the mold and then vacuum cast to reproduce the product with properties
very similar to those of mass-produced products. A full color range is available. Can be as flexible and elastic as
thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) or as hard as acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS).
Typical Applications for Vacuum Casting
Vacuum casting is widely used in the automotive, consumer electronics, consumer goods and sports equipment
industries. In addition to prototypes, vacuum casting is also used for injection molding of small quantities where
expensive molds are not intended. In the automotive industry, applications include the production of various tubes,
water tanks, air filter housings, radiator parts, lamp shades, chips, gears and moving hinges. Consumer electronics
applications include the manufacture of keyboards and housings for cell phones, televisions, cameras, players,
audio systems and computers.
