The unique iCastTM digital manufacturing process is an innovation in liquid silicone rubber (LSR) processing. Involving no tool investment, it offers a cost-effective way to develop product variations or try out different design concepts before investing in serial production tools, as well as enabling the start of pre-series and series production with small batches.
Dramatically cutting concept to production time for prototypes from a typical four and a half months to a maximum of three weeks for the average part, it helps manufacturers meet the pressures of rapidly moving markets that are demanding faster new product introductions, improvements, and advancements.
With iCastTM LSR technology, quick and multiple design iterations of components in standard industrial grade two-component platinum-cured LSR can be made. These demonstrate the properties and quality levels of high-volume injection molded parts.
