As well as taking advantages of additive manufacture PD Models has a full traditional Model workshop, all of our skills start here. Our fully trained and experienced model makers have a strong traditional model making base with a focus on High Quality finishing. You can be sure that we have the understanding, skill and experience to provide you the best results.
Vacuum Casting is the process by which prototypes and indeed production parts can be made through the use of a silicone rubber tool made from a master model. Effectively it is a way of copying a three dimensional shape quickly and accurately. Once a silicone rubber tool has been made it is filled in a vacuum with a choice of a polyurethane resin that will harden and replicate the characteristics of a whole host of industrial material properties.
.At the heart of our business lies traditional model making skills that take many years to perfect. We have adapted these skills to maximise the benefits of the latest technologies. As well as assuring the best quality vacuum castings and master models from additive manufacture we have a fully equipped traditional workshop where we can construct traditionally made models.
