Renishaw’s 5/04 PLC vacuum casting machine system has a casting capacity of up to 5.5 litres. The system boasts Vario Vac differential pressure casting and comes with the the option of a heated cup module. In addition, the 5/04 benefits from the option of chamber extension, and has been designed to accommodate the Renishaw Nylon Plus casting module for nylon vacuum casting.
VC module: The standard module for plastic prototypes and low volume production in vacuum casting polyurethane resins.
Nylon Plus module option: For prototypes and production parts in nylon and glass filled nylon.
Vario Vac module: 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.
Twin robot option: Increases casting capacity from 2.2 L to 5.5 L.
