Prototype High Temperature Epoxy Molds

Dependent on part geometry Castek can provide high-temperature laminated epoxy DCPD prototype molds. These molds are generally used for concept prove-out and very limited parts manufacture for testing or product validation. Castek CNC machines a composite master of both the cavity and core mold surfaces and then manually laminates each mold half. There is a good deal of gussets and back side rib supports to ensure mold integrity. This mold type also has the option of laminating cooling lines within the laminate for additional processing control. Castek then engineers a robust return flange and aluminum subplate assembly to rigidize the mold for additional support.
