This is one of the most popular techniques to get multiple prototypes in the least possible timeline and reasonable costs. The parts have adequate strength for basic functional testing. The only draw back being that the materials being used are not actual plastic materials of choice, but are MIMIC materials that simulate the final material of choice. This techniques are ideal for prototype requirements upto 20 numbers. The moulds are made using Silicone Rubber and these moulds have a fixed tool life of 20-22 numbers. If more numbers are needed multiple tools need to be made.
We have expertise in dealing with critical mechanical assemblies used for electronic and medical applications and at the same time have dealt with large automotive assemblies including complex dashboard/bumper, trims and lighting assemblies. Size and weight is not a constraint. Our model makers and technicians are skilled in achieving the required aesthetic finish of the prototype samples as well.
Materials equivalent to ABS, PP, Nylon, Glass Filled grades and High Temperature applications can be simulated.
