SRIM / RIM Tooling - Resin - Silicone - Rubber
Whether its multiple prototypes or a low volume application Pro2Pro soft tooling is the perfect solution especially when the lead time is tight or the budget is limited. A broad range of Tooling materials from Aluminium / Silicone rubbers and resins are used to create a quick and versatile methods of tooling.
RIM (Reation Injection Moulding) - Ideal for Large Components.
RIM Tool lead time is approx 2 - 3 days with a typical tool life of 50 off components.
SRIM (Structural Reaction Injection Moulding) - Ideal for parts that require extra structural integrity.
SRIM Tool lead time is approx 5 - 7 days with a typical tool life of 2 - 5000 off components.
Vacuum Casting - Ideal for parts with complex geometry and thin wall sections.
Vacuum Cast Tool lead time 1 - 2 days with a typical too life of 20 - 25 off components.
All tools can surpass these numbers dependent on geometry.
Customer chooses silicone tooling as he changes design every 50 - 100 off components so needs simple and cost effective method of tooling.
Customer has limited budget but requires parts that have excellent material properties, he want to use the process for Low Volume Manufacture.
Customer want to validate a concept design in materials that closely replicate thermoplastic material properties before expensive tooling investment.
