If you need custom plastic parts within 200pcs in short lead times, Vacuum Casting is your right choice. It is a fast and cost-effective method of producing small series 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. 


A wide range of materials 
The base material used for the reproductions is a liquid polyurethane resin which with the use of additives can simulate the properties of a wide variety of plastics. RPWORLD stocks dozens of different polyurethane resins materials that are suitable for various part applications and industries, and we are able to cast a wide range of materials including PU, PX, PU, UP, etc.

Cost-effective process 
Between 15 and 30 parts can be produced depending on the requirements of the material and surface finish. In the case of relatively small quantities, Urethane Casting Process is more economical process, while costs of both CNC and Injection Molding are much higher.

One-off mold
There are also some customized products only need dozens per year, one-off investment of silicone mold is a good option, such as large biochemical analyzers, spectrum analyzers, etc.

Complex geometries 
By using polyurethane materials, you can simulate the general properties of injection molding materials. For Some special requirements, like under-cut structure, soft plastic materials, or the customer need solid color plastic.
