Vacuum Casting
ABOUT Vacuum Casting
Technology: Vacuum Casting Services are urethane and nylon molding operations that produce near injection-mold like quality for short run production and prototypes. Vacuum casting is similar to liquid resin casting except a vacuum casting machine is used to cast the resins to insure parts that are free of voids. The process starts with a master part which is encased in liquid silicon and removed after the mold cures. The mold is then installed in the vacuum casting machine which uses vacuum to draw the casting resin into the mold. After curing, the part is removed and the mold is reused, up to 50 times.

Advantages: Vacuum casting produces high quality resin parts in low volumes without needing the expensive tooling of injection molding.
  • Prototype masters can be made using a variety of rapid prototyping methods
  • Masters can be molded directly from existing parts
  • Complex shapes, undercuts, etc. can be made due to the flexible molds
  • High surface finishes


  • Vacuum Casting Limitations
  • Mold life is limited to low part volumes, which, once reached, require new molds
  • Requires vacuum casting unit, adding to the cost of prototypes


  • Applications: Vacuum casting is generally considered appropriate for high quality flexible prototypes.
  • Pre-production prototypes/marketing models
  • Short run rubber parts
