Short Run Production    

Silicone Tooling - Vacuum Cast Urethane Parts

3D Systems Asia-Pacific utilises the latest computer controlled vacuum casting system in conjunction with advanced silicone tooling to produce prototype polyurethane plastic parts in short time frames. The silicone tooling allows a production run of 1 to 100 units, in a range of production simulant materials from glass filled nylon through to soft rubbers or silicons.

Silicone tooling will faithfully replicate all the complexities and the surface detail of the rapid prototype master to allow for the accurate production of multiple, functional prototypes.  Formero can use an existing model or product as a master model to create duplicate parts. 



  • Large range of production simulant materials

  • Polyurethane is available in wide range of hardness (Shore A~D)

  • PMS colour matching

  • Range of surface textures: matte, satin, gloss, EDM...

  • PU rubber over-moulding

  • Clear/tinted parts for lens or windows

  • Maximum tool size 1000 x 600 x 400mm                                                 

  • Computer controlled Vacuum Casting

  • Insert moulding
