Vacuum Casting Services

Vacuum casting is one of the widely-used prototyping for mass batch production and small batch manufacturing. It allows producing high-quality moulds, and re-manufacturing of parts and components using polyurethane resins. It is ideal for duplicating the performance of engineering products. It is the most preferred method for high-quality prototypes and low-volume production.

Whether you need to create a master mould or already have one, vacuum casting services at Zeal 3D will help you achieve identical parts in the required quantity. In case you are providing the master mold, ensure that it can endure a 40° C temperature. We provide a comprehensive turnkey solution for creating master moulds and identical cast copies matching the CAD designs.

You can produce around 50 parts with our master moulds and continue for low batch production after retooling. We also offer vacuum pressure casting and silicone vacuum casting for excellent quality products.

Our plastic vacuum casting services are best for creating prototypes for testing, displaying, and end users. We guarantee you high-quality cast components. We are the best Vacuum Casting Company with a comprehensive range of modern casting services.

IMPORTANCE OF VACUUM CASTING FOR SMALL BATCH PRODUCTION

Vacuum casting is the best option for small batch production because it allows you to manufacture high-quality moulding with polyurethane resins. This process replicates the plastic manufacturing processes without the high cost.

HOW VACUUM CASTING WORK

Vacuum Casting Process

Zeal offers a variety of vacuum casting services, including Polyurethane casting & vacuum mould casting. The primary process is simple.

STEP 1: 3D Model Creation

Whether you need resin casting services or 3d printing casting, you only need to send us the 3D CAD file. Once we have the file, our team prepares a high-quality master model using modern technologies and a silicone mould maker machine.

STEP 2: Curing Process

The master model is then cured to prepare the mould. It is performed using thermoset plastics. This process can take a few hours to complete.

STEP 3: Vacuum Casting

The mould is kept in the vacuum casting machine to remove the air. It creates a vacuum, and the molten plastic flows into all cavity corners. As the plastic solidifies, it gains higher dimensional stability.

STEP 4: Post-Processing

In this process, engineers remove the cast part from the mould to clean it. Then, for meeting aesthetic requirements, surface finishing work is done.

Urethane Casting - Vacuum Casting Advantages

Urethane casting is ideally suited for small batch manufacturing in which limited quantities of materials is required. The technology is especially valuable in mass customization manufacturing.

  • Save More on Each Piece: When compared to additive manufacturing, urethane casting parts are extremely cost-effective, especially when you need prototypes for mass production manufacturing. The process of urethane casting can mould parts continuously.
  • Reduce Tooling Cost: The cost for silicone moulds, used in vacuum casting, is decidedly lower than aluminium or steel tools used in injection moulding.
  • Tooling Lead Time: This is also a win-win situation for manufacturers as urethane casting is less time-consuming (10 days)than traditional injection moulding (4-8 weeks).

  • Diversity of Materials Used: Vacuum casting offers a versatile range of materials
  • Quality Part Finish: Urethane casting offers the same strength and surface finish as parts produced using injection moulding. Moreover, one can also carry out secondary application on parts created using urethane resins.

We at Zeal 3D offer high-quality custom silicone molds in Australia to meet all your product goals with excellence. So whether you need 3d print casting or resin mold casting, we've got you covered.

Ultimate Vacuum Casting Guide for Beginners

When it comes to small to medium batch manufacturing, vacuum casting is among the most popular methods. Vacuum casting is more flexible, affordable, and agile in several other ways. It lets you replicate hundreds of parts in a shorter turnaround time. This process is agile and enables manufacturers to scale up their production seamlessly.

Compared to other processes, vacuum casting can deliver higher uniformity regardless of the number of parts. As it's an economical process, small businesses can also opt for it to improve their overall product quality.
