Please feel free to ask any question you may have! A frequently asked question is: ‘ How many products can you make using one mould?’ Below you can find our answer to this question.
On average a mould can be used for 15 to 40 castings. The exact number differs according to a range of variables.
- What are the material requirements? – Some materials are very aggressive to the silicon mould. When using such materials the mould will not last very long.
- How complex is the product? –The more delicate the product the more difficult it is to remove the scaffolding without damaging the mould. Also complex products can impact the lifespan of the mould.
Depending on the size of the product, we can cast multiple products using one mould. When you have a set of 3D printed moulds you can use them all at once and mass manufacture your objects in batches that will speed your production nicely. For smaller products, we can create a set of 10 moulds, enabling you to create 400 products when casting 40 products per mould!
