Vacuum casting

Prototech has advised Viking to use vacuum casting as the ideal production method, based on their desire to produce quality plastic items in a series of 20 units.


Hei-Cast 8150 is a modern polyurethane material that offers ABS-like quality. It is highly resistant to wear and tear, and offers superb dimensional stability, which made it an ideal choice for this product.

Prototech has been involved as a sparring partner during the design process, and has been able to recommend hollowing out many of the parts and adding internal ribs. This has resulted in a strong product with a significant saving in production costs.
