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.
