What is RIM Moulding?
Reaction Injection Moulding, known as RIM moulding, is the process of injecting polyurethane resin into a mould under low pressure.
RIM Casting is an accurate, low-pressure technique that creates robust and durable parts.
- Cost-efficient alternative to hard tooling.
- Robust parts.
- High-temp materials available.
- Strong parts.
- Underbonnet components.
- Medical devices & lab equipment.
- Marine, diving & sonar devices.
- Robust base units.
Typical reaction injection moulding lead times are 8-10 days; express work available from 3-4 days.
RIM Casting Quantities
- Up to 50 parts can be cast per tool.
- Typically 3 - 20 mm wall thickness.
|Capacity||300 x 400 x 350mm||820 x 600 x 600mm||820 x 1800 x 600mm|
|Quantity||Up to 20 parts per tool|
|Tolerances||+ / - 0.3% geometry dependent|
|Wall Thickness||Min. 0.5 mm - 1 mm
(Depending on the overall size. The larger the part, the thicker the wall must be)
|Letters & Logo||
Width = 2x height min.
|Gap between raised & recessed letters||
Min. 1.27 mm
Parts at the end of their lifecycle can be ground into bulk filler for the composite or construction industry.
