Small – scale plastic molding
The technology of vacuum molding is based on the use of liquid two-component polyurethane, which after mixing solidifies at room temperature in a vacuum chamber in which there is a high-quality mold filling without high pressure.
This allows the use of flexible molds made of silicone or polyurethane for casting plastic products.
Advantages of cooperation with Marabu
- Reduction of production time to several days;
- Saving the budget for the manufacture of a small batch;
- Wide range of materials, colors, textures;
- Making exact copies of plastic products according to the sample;
- Manufacturing of plastic product according to the sketch.
The main advantage of vacuum casting technology is the ability to abandon the costly and time-consuming manufacture of metal molds.
Stages of vacuum plastic molding:
3D model creation
A 3D engineering model is required to manufacture a 3D prototype of a product. You can order the creation of a 3D model from us or provide your model, which our specialists will adapt for production free of charge.
Making a master model
Prototype print on 3D printer. After approval, the prototype is processed (to it is applied the required type of surface).
Manufacturing of silicone molds
The master model is placed in the formwork and filled with silicone or polyurethane. The whole structure is placed in a vacuum chamber to obtain high quality silicone molds.
To check the quality of the resulting mold, a trial (test) casting is cast.
Serial production launch
After agreement a trial casting with the customer, can be started mass production of the entire batch of products.
Why clients choose us
Many years of experience of the Marabu company in the production of various products from polyurethane allowed us to develop our own technical solutions that guarantee high quality casting.
Plastic masterpieces are created here!
The more parts you need to make, the more materials will be consumed, and accordingly the price will be higher. This applies to both the dimensions of the product and its complex geometry. If you need to make a large number of plastic housings or you need products of large size and complex design, it is worth considering other production options (for example, plastic injection molding).
If you need individual small-scale production of cases or plastic parts, please contact "Marabu".
