RAPID PROTOTYPING  SPT PRODUCTION

IMPRESSING IN EVERY WAY
VACUUM CASTING, 3D PRINTING, FREEFORMER

Fast, faster, rapid prototyping: It used to be a tedious task to get a first spatial impression of an article through a 3D model. Today it is only a short process. SPT consistently focuses on development-accelerating rapid prototyping. In no time at all, we create a true-to-scale 3D prototype without having to design and build extra costly aluminum or steel molds. This puts us in a position to work on the practical pattern in advance and gain valuable insights for the later production of molds. This knowledge flows directly into the subsequent mold making and saves time and money as costly changes for tools are not necessary after a successful prototyping.

ELASTIC AND HARD PROTOTYPES IN THE SHORTEST TIME!

In vacuum casting, a stereolithography model is first created based on the 3D article data. Subsequently, a silicone mold is produced on this basis, which is filled under vacuum conditions with special polyurethane resins. Even the most complex designs are realized, such as undercuts, tunnel formations and breakthroughs. Also multi-component parts are no obstacle. About 3D Printing and Freeformer, there is even the possibility to create first moldings in hard or soft without a mold. When using a Freeformer even the thermoplastic material, also TPE, can be used, which is to be used later in the series in the injection molding process.

  • We can supply elastic prototypes in a hardness range of 30-90 Shore A.
  • The prototypes are dimensionally stable and can be used for initial leak tests on your application.
  • With a silicone mold in vacuum casting about 20-25 casts are possible.
