The vacuum casting process is a copying technique or a casting process which is used for the production of small series of functional materials usually plastic, rubber and metals. Moreover, this method helps in producing exact replicas of a prototype on a large scale. Core and cavity extraction is done manually. Equivalent material to the end material is poured under vacuum so as to produce the component. Ideally, a silicone mold can produce up to 20 good replicas but again the capability may vary as per the design complexity & quality acceptance. The parts produced in this process are functional and with excellent aesthetics. This process is suggested when multiple functional prototypes are required within a short timeline at low cost.

The Vacuum Casting Process

Why choose the Vacuum Casting Process?

The vacuum casting process results in high-quality products as compared to injection molded components. Vacuum casted models are usually used for functioning testing and marketing purposes. The end product has such good finishing that this technique has attracted a large set of the audience towards it. The type of finishing which vacuum casting does cannot be matched with any other technique.
