Low Volume Vacuum Casting is a method to replicate components, often used in the prototype phase of product development. Strong, durable polyurethane (PU) resin components can be produced from silicone tools. 

In general; MNL produces silicone tools from 3D printed masters, which have been surface finished to replicate the desired production finish. There are many PU resins to choose from, they differ in their physical properties and are often chosen to closely simulate an engineering plastic or elastomer.

We’re often asked…

What is vacuum casting?

Vacuum casting is a rapid prototyping process that uses a silicone mould and vacuum pressure to create high-quality, functional prototypes with production-grade finishes.

How much does vacuum casting cost?

The cost depends on several factors like part size, complexity, material, and quantity. However, vacuum casting is generally more affordable than injection moulding for low volumes.

What types of parts can be vacuum cast?

You can vacuum cast a wide variety of parts, including:

What information do I need to provide for a quote?
  • CAD file of your design
  • Desired material
  • Quantity
