Why Choose Vacuum Casting for Medical Products?

Last Updated on October 13, 2023 by assistant

Prototyping is always important to the entire product development project. In the medical industry, this step is undoubtedly essential. Vacuum double molding is often used to prototype small batches of medical parts before putting them into high-volume production. This allows designers to test multiple sets of prototypes and refine the design over time. This article focuses on the advantages of using vacuum composite molding in the medical field.

Vacuum Casting Prototype

Fast production
This relies on the rapid production characteristics of vacuum complex molding. The working principle of vacuum multi-molding is to make plastic molds through CNC machining or 3D printed prototypes, thereby replicating multiple parts. Plastic molds can be made in one to two days, which is much shorter than the production time required for injection molding metal molds.

Carrying Out Vacuum Casting

Once the plastic molds are created, these molds can be thrown directly into creating multiple replicated parts. A mold can be reused 20 to 30 times, and we can create multiple plastic molds simultaneously in one day, creating high-quality replicas of medical parts in a short amount of time. If you attach great importance to the efficiency of delivery, then the use of vacuum complex molding can undoubtedly complete the production of medical parts in a short time.

Economical 
If you’re on a budget but want to create low-volume prototypes in a short amount of time, vacuum overmolding is the way to go. If you choose CNC machining to complete your medical prototype project, the machining cost is higher.

Because the vacuum composite mold uses low-cost resin molds, the required production costs are greatly reduced, and the prototype is made at a minimum cost, and the focus is on the design.

Production Stages of Vacuum Casting

High-quality performance
During the entire processing step of vacuum injection molding, air bubbles generated by the plastic mold will greatly affect the quality of the part. so pump up

Compared with injection molding, vacuum complex molding can be used to make larger parts, and it can ensure the high consistency of the shape, surface texture and performance of the replica and the produced prototype. This can reduce subsequent surface preparation steps.

A variety of materials and colors to choose from
Materials that can be used in medical device products generally have a variety of mechanical properties, including chemical resistance, rigidity, strength, transparency, hardness, softness, etc. Vacuum composite molding can be used to mix and match various plastics and dyes to complete the experimentation of medical device prototypes.

Vacuum Casting

The commonly used plastic materials include: PP, PU, ​​POM, PE, etc. By testing these materials, you can get the most cost-effective medical device manufacturing solutions.
