Create high quality parts in a wide range of resins as well as high quality wax investment casting masters.
Features and benefits
- Moulds up to 530 mm × 450 mm × 425 mm.
- Small footprint bench-top machine – ideal for small workshops.
- Vario Vac differential chamber pressure – suitable for soft-feel materials.
- PLC control and automation – ensures consistent casting.
- Heated cup – suitable for casting high quality wax masters.
The 5/01 PLC Vacuum Casting Machine is capable of casting the full range of Renishaw polyurethane resins. The system also benefits from Renishaw Vario Vac technology that allows highly viscous materials, such as silicone rubber, to be cast efficiently by applying differential pressure to rapidly force material into the mould.
The 5/01 is smallest PLC* controlled Renishaw vacuum casting system in the range, and benefits from all the process control and user interface features available on the larger 5/04 and 5/06 machines.
*Programmable Logic Controller
VC module: The standard module for production of plastic prototypes and low volume production in vacuum casting polyurethane resins.
Vario Vac module option: Choose between our standard PLC system or the vario vac model, for production of prototypes in silicone rubber and highly filled viscous materials.
Heated cup option: Enables production of wax master models for the investment casting, and low melting point alloys.
