- Haratech (Linz, Austria)
TECHNOLOGY IS USED IN THESE RESEARCH-HUBS
- Hub Linz: From 2D to 3D
ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY
Vacuum casting is a common process for rapid and cost-effective duplication of master models. With the help of an original model or 3D printed model, a silicone mold is created, which allows the casting of several identical parts with polyurethane casting resins. The use of a vacuum chamber prevents air pockets in the mold and component. More than 50 different resins can be used. The range extends from hard plastics (reinforced / unreinforced) over transparent parts in different colors (can be colored) to elastic molded rubber parts with different textures. Limited food-graded materials are available.
USUAL AREAS OF APPLICATION
Aviation industry, modelling, fashion objects, any small-scaled industrial production.
MATERIALS USED IN RE-FREAM
Polyurethane resins in many shades color, hardness, transparency, reinforcement.
