Spin-Casting Provides Functional Rapid Prototypes 2001-01-1046

The objective of this paper is to introduce the spin-casting technology as a fast and cost effective method to produce a wide variety of fully functional automotive prototype and short-run components. Whether the need is for high strength zinc or plastic prototypes, spin-casting is capable of providing parts, from any 3-dimensional model (pattern), within a few days. Spin-casting utilizes silicone molds, eliminating any high setup costs and long lead times. The paper will give an overview of how the process works. Case studies from the automotive industry will follow, showing how various companies were able to efficiently utilize this technology for research and development, as well as short-run, purposes
