FAQ about Casting silicone Mould

Casting Mould refers to the use of the original master prototype to make a silicone mold in a vacuum state, and use PU, transparent PU, POM-like, ABS materials for pouring in a vacuum state, thereby cloning the same copy of the original template . This technology greatly reduces the development cost, cycle and risk of

Urethane Casting Complete Guide

What is Urethane Casting? Urethane casting is a cost-effective way to create rigid or rubber-like plastic prototypes and end-use parts. It makes a limited number of castings with silicone molds rather than expensive metal tooling. It’s comparable to injection moulding, except the tooling is more flexible and soft. As a result, urethane casting is more cost

Rapid Manufacturing of Silicone Rubber Mold

With the rapid development of the machinery manufacturing industry, the demand for molds is increasing. A more complex mold often requires a combination of multiple pieces, which is not only expensive and long, but also difficult to ensure dimensional accuracy. The production of silicone rubber molds solves the problems of long molding cycle and high

Rapid Manufacturing of Soft Mould Based on Rapid Prototyping

Resin products made by vacuum casting of silicone rubber molds Rapid prototyping cannot completely replace the final product due to the limitation of the materials used in its manufacturing method. Therefore, products made of actual materials are still needed in terms of new product function inspection, market trial operation to obtain feedback from users after

What is Anodized Aluminum

Previous Next introduction Aluminum is the second largest category of metal materials used in metal materials after steel. It has properties of small gravity, high specific strength, excellent ductility, good electrical conductivity, strong corrosion resistance, and excellent physical and chemical properties. A dense oxide film is formed spontaneously on aluminum under natural conditions, and its
