VC - 6235 Specially for VC

6235 (Specially for VC)

Versatility, Strength, Corrosion Resistance, Biocompatibility

The material "6235" specially developed for vacuum casting (VC) is designed to meet the specific requirements of the vacuum casting process. It is formulated to provide excellent flow properties, dimensional stability, and surface finish when used in VC applications.

This material is commonly used for prototyping, small-scale production, and creating complex geometries with fine details. It allows designers and engineers to quickly produce functional prototypes that closely resemble the final product, enabling them to validate the design, fit, and functionality before proceeding to mass production.


  • Prototyping:

    Vacuum casting is widely used in product development and prototyping to quickly create functional prototypes that closely resemble the final product. It allows for testing and validation of the design, fit, and functionality before moving to mass production.

  • Design Verification:

    Vacuum casting enables designers and engineers to verify and validate their designs in terms of aesthetics, ergonomics, and functionality. It helps identify any design flaws or necessary improvements before investing in costly tooling for mass production.

  • Small Batch Production:

    Vacuum casting is suitable for small-scale production runs where producing a limited quantity of parts is required. It offers cost-effective production with relatively shorter lead times compared to traditional manufacturing methods.

  • Complex Geometries:

    Vacuum casting allows for the production of parts with intricate and complex geometries, including undercuts, thin walls, and internal cavities. It is particularly useful for creating parts that cannot be easily manufactured using traditional methods like injection molding.

  • Functional Components:

    Vacuum casting materials can exhibit properties similar to final production materials, such as flexibility, durability, and heat resistance. This makes them suitable for producing functional components that need to undergo testing and performance evaluation.

  • Automotive and Aerospace:

    Vacuum casting finds applications in automotive and aerospace industries for prototyping and small-scale production of parts like interior components, trim pieces, brackets, and housings.

  • Medical Devices:

    Vacuum casting is used in the production of medical devices and instruments, such as prosthetics, surgical tools, and anatomical models. It allows for customization, precision, and quick turnaround times required in the medical field.
