Quick Cast - prototypes in magnesium aluminum zinc

Quick cast is a plaster casting process for casting prototypes in aluminium, magnesium and zinc with delivery within 5 - 10 workdays. Following the casting process, we offer CNC post machining of the cast items on state-of-the-art CNC machining centers, including measurements and documentation.

Engineering Sketch

Why Quick Cast

  • Delivery time is from 5-10 working days

  • No tool costs are required

  • Extremely complex parts with undercuts can easily be produced. Also drafts angles and parting-line definitions are not required.

  • Thin wall thicknesses of from 1 mm or less can be produced

  • The level of porosities is very limited because vacuum is applied in the casting process

  • A number of different alloys can be offered

Description of the process

A 3D printed PMMA model is printed from a 3D file. The PMMA model is cast in a plaster mould and then burned. Then molten metal is cast in a vacuum in the cavity created.The process is based on free form techniques and allows the designer great design freedom. Highly complex parts with undercut and with great thickness variations can be produced without considering mould-technical issues such as release angles, radii and parting lines. As no tool investments of any kind are involved in this process, it is highly suitable for the production of prototypes.
