Urethane casting is a fast and cost-effective method of producing small batches from a silicone mold. A silicone mold is made with the help of a prototype which serves as the basis for the duplication process of the original piece. Thanks to the flexibility of the silicone, complex intermeshing geometries can be achieved without demoulding problems.
The base material used for the reproductions is a liquid polyurethane resin which with the use of additives can mimic the properties of a wide variety of plastics. Between 15 and 30 parts can be produced depending on the requirements of the material and surface finish.
This method is ideal for the production of small batches and prototypes in which the production of expensive injection molding tools is not feasible.
Polyurethane cast materials are generally as tough or tougher than injection molded pieces, and are much stronger than 3D printed counterparts.
It is perfect for low-volume production for quantities of one to hundreds. On average, a silicone mold can accurately cast about 20-25 parts. The maximum quantity varies based on part design and material cast.
A wide range of rigid and flexible urethane cast materials are available from very soft and flexible to extremely rigid and impact resistant. Parts are cast in a color that is blended to your specifications.
Color Matching & Finishes
The urethane casting is capable of reproducing small details. Little to no finishing is required, because the desired textures and finish levels are applied to the master pattern.
Faster Lead time
The lead time of urethane cast parts is around 15 business days, depending on order specifications and volume. By contrast, it is much faster than injection molded parts, which can take months to build.
The price is lower than CNC but could machining more complex structures, the surface quality is superior to 3D printing.
Diese Methode eignet sich hervorragen für die Produktion von Kleinserien und Prototypen, bei welchen sich die Herstellung eines teuren Spritzgusswerkzeuges nicht lohnt.
