FAQ

  • Q How much does urethane casting process cost?

    A One of the things you will notice when looking at the cost of a single product is that there
    is more to it than meets the eye. While you might be tempted to just look at the cost of the items, you need to look at the time. Urethane casting is a fast way to produce urethane casting prototypes.
    While the initial cost of materials might be expensive, the process is fast enough to make up for the money used. Making items above 15 units and below 250 units is considered pretty standard, but you will spend more if you make items above 250 pieces. When calculating the entire cost of making your pieces using urethane casting, keep that in mind.

  • Q What is the best range of part units to use urethane casting?

    A When it comes to doing bulk work, you need to ensure that you make the most out of the process. For instance, urethane casting is often used to produce pieces in bulk. Knowing the number of pieces you can do in one go will ensure that you pay money for something worth it.
    Since you are trying to save costs, the more units you make, the better their returns are. The best range of part unit urethane casting is 15-250 units. It might be less than CNC printing and machining, but it gets the job done efficiently, which you should be looking out for with the process.

  • Q What materials can be processed by urethane casting?

    A Even though urethane casting uses various plastics to create end-use pieces, it needs specific plastic and resin. Learning about them will ensure you know whether the piece you are working on can be made using this method or if you should find another method to work for you. Here are the main materials that can be used in the urethane casting process:
    • Rigid urethane (shore D resins)
    • Urethane elastomers (shore A resins)
    • Silicones
    Even though all these will vary with the types and categories, they are the most common materials you will find when carrying out the urethane casting process.

  • Q How does urethane casting process go?

    A Here are the steps used when urethane casting is done:
    • Before production starts, a master pattern is often created through 3D printing to ensure all the mold details are right.
    • Once the master has been made, a silicone mold is made of this master used for the urethane casting process. In cases where there are meant to be holes or indents, metallic dowels might be added to the mold. The molds can be made using different • silicone materials based on the manufacturer’s choice.
    • With the mold in place, it is now time for the casting to begin. The resin liquid and curative mixture will be poured into the mold and allowed to cure.
    • Since the piece has cured, the mold will be cut into half and the final piece removed.

  • Q Is die casting an expensive process?

    A One of the questions most people have regarding die casting is whether it is expensive or quite affordable. While there is no one answer to that, most manufacturers admit that it is fairly inexpensive.
    The reason behind this could be that it is done in bulk, and that leads to so many cost reductions. Since the molds are reused, money is also not spent on pre-production after the first time. If you plan to get many pieces, you should probably think of doing die casting. You get uniform pieces, and they all come about simultaneously. The entire production line will move much faster than if you were doing one piece at a time.

  • Q What’s the difference between die casting and other castings?

    A One of the things many people have an issue with is figuring out whether there is a difference between casing and die casting. Since they all use molds and molten metal, there is confusion between the two and how they work. Die casting uses a metal mold, while other casting methods use a sand mold.
    It might seem like such a small detail, but it determines how accurate the final piece will be. If you are looking for exact measurements, sand casting will work for you. Die casting works best because of its accuracy.

  • Q What is the die casting process cycle?

    A One of the things you will notice when it comes to die casting is no one process suits them all. Based on the different methods, one will do it all differently to get similar results.
    Multisided casting will use both hot and cold die-casting to create the perfect piece. It is used when working with different materials with different melting points. That way, you get a finished product that looks and works well.
    Cold die casting will work best if you deal with metals with really high melting points. It ensures there is no corrosion on the material and produces great pieces as well.
    On the other hand, hot diecasting will deal with all metals that have lower melting points. It also produces quality products unlike the other two processes do.
    Even though they all take different steps, they all involve getting molten metal into a mold and letting it cool down to form the final piece.

  • Q What are your CNC machining & turning capabilities?

    A CNC (computer numerical controlled) machining is a widely used manufacturing process that uses automated, high-speed cutting tools to form designs from metal or plastic stock. Standard CNC machines include 3-axis, 4-axis, and 5-axis milling machines, lathes, and routers. Machines may vary in how parts are cut—the workpiece may remain in place while the tool moves, the tool may remain in place while the workpiece is rotated and moved, or both the cutting tool and workpiece may move together.

  • Q What are the steps to get injection molded parts?

    A Many people are at a loss when figuring out how to carry out injection molding. The good thing is that the method is pretty simple. Here is how you will go about the process:
    • The mold is prepped and closed for the process to begin.
    • Molten plastics get fed into the closed-up mold using the injection. Outlets will ensure the steam does not stay in the mold as the plastic gets molded.
    • The molten plastic is allowed to cool down.
    • Once the plastic cools, the mold is opened up, and the pieces are ejected, ready for examination, packaging, and shipping.

  • Q What type of parts are suitable for metal injection molding process?

    A Injection molding can be used to make so many parts. All you need to do is figure out what bits and pieces in the market can be made using the molds that the molders come in. One of the most recognized parts made from injection molding has got to be the Lego bricks. Since they are so small, they need a mold that can efficiently create them.
    Since these pieces are also so intricate, they should all be made in a way where they fit perfectly with one another. Even though Legos are just an example, injection molds are used in companies that need accuracy with plastic materials and pieces.

  • Q What industries use plastic injection molding?

    A Many industries depend on plastic to be able to work well. It is for this reason that more people are embracing this process. Here are the industries that use plastic injection molding:
    • Pharmaceuticals create droppers and syringes since they need to be made in very specific and accurate sizes for them to work.
    • Food industries to create storage containers and other plastics that are BPA-free.
    • The medical industry to create different plastic equipment used when examining patients.
    • Transportation to create spare parts and nay customizable parts for different vehicles. They make car repairs much cheaper and easier.
    • Building and construction to create handles for tools that might be slippery

  • Q What is the difference between molding and printing?

    A Even though printing and molding all use plastics to create new materials, they slightly differ based on how these two methods work. Printing is an additive process and needs a 3D image created to be used as a reference for when the molding takes place. Without the proper 3D image, the printer will not produce anything.
    On the other hand, molding needs hot plastic material fed into already made mold so that it can cool down and form the object being made. While we both end up with a product, the two will be made differently.

  • Q What is injection molding?

    A Injection molding is the process of feeding heated polymer or plastic through a barrel onto an already shaped model to create a product. It is mostly used when one needs accuracy and efficiency in their work. Before the process starts, there have to be molds created that will help ensure the right shape is achieved since molds are made beforehand, and the finished product is similar in size and design, which is what you want. The process has been embraced as the best method for creating new items on a large scale since it is very affordable compared to other production methods in the market.

  • Q What industries use sheet metal fabrication?

    A To appreciate sheet metal fabrication, you first need to know where it is used. That way, you get to know if it is the best method for you and your current needs or if you should look elsewhere. Here are the different areas where sheet metal fabrication is used:
    Car repair. Most care repair parts are made from sheet metal fabrication.
    Architecture and construction. To ensure the building being made is of sound construction. Sheet metal pieces are used.
    Medical. Some medical equipment is metallic and made using this procedure.
    Landscaping. To make all the intricate structures, sheet metal is used.
    Transportation. All cars have a metallic body made using sheet metal fabrication.

  • Q What sheet metal finishes are available at All Win MFG?

    A The last step in metal manufacturing is adding the finishes. You need to ensure that the final piece looks good and can also perform well under the elements. There are different ways you can go about it, but all you need to do is ensure it has aesthetic value and functionality. Here are the different ways you can go about adding finishes to your sheet metal products:
    Plating
    Brushing
    Polishing

    Heat treating
    Coating
    Hot blackening
    All the methods have their perks, so it is up to you to decide what will work for you and your needs.

  • Q How much does using multiple sheet metal forming processes cost?

    A One of the things you cannot eyeball is the ultimate cost of sheet metal forming. The reason for this is there is so much that needs to go into it. If you want to come up with an estimate, you need to know what variables to keep in mind. Top of the list is the cost of getting the sheet metal. Finding a good supplier will ensure you get a good deal. Once you have bargained for the metal, you then have to consider the cost of production. If you are getting one piece made, you will spend more money on it since most companies prefer bulk orders. It makes sense to get all these in bulk. That way, you end up getting better discounts on your products.
