ICPS. Specialist in vacuum casting.

Vacuum casting is a technology for fast manufacturing.

ICPS starts from an existing model or one made by stereolithography.

ICPS creates a silicone mold around the part, which is then removed once the mold hardens.

The resin poured within the mold is cooked. The finished part can then be removed from the mold.

– For which projects?

  • For small parts and prototypes with mechanical constraints
  • For pre-produced parts and realistic parts

Advantage of vacuum casting with ICPS.

  • Manufacturing of one or multiple parts in the same mold while using different resins
  • Capacity of 20 to 25 pieces par mold
  • High level of detail and resistance
  • Save time, because more effort is spent on secondary treatment for each and every part in order to obtain the desired definition
  • Variety of resins depending on their use: electronics, cutting-edge industry, food industry, etc…
  • Personalized parts: coloration within the mass, transparence, choice of rigidity (Shore): hard, soft, elastic
  • Level of finish

Practical Information

  • Means of production

5/01 ULC Reinishaw Machine – max. dimensions vacuum casting = 400x400x400

  • Materials.
    • Elastomer: from 20 to 95 Shore A.
    • Rigid: near ABS, PA, PP, PC, PEHD crystal, PS, PA, PMMA, UV and fire resistant resins.
  • Finishes

Complete deburring of parts and verification of assembly. Finishing paint.

  • Delay

4 to 6 days open for tooling. Then 2 to 10 parts worked per day, depending on the part.

ICPS. Specialist in 3D printing on-demand

IN WHICH SITUATION ARE YOU?

You have an idea,

but not yet converted to a 3D file.

Contact us and share your project with us.

We use 3D modeling software to translate your idea into a virtual 3D model. Then, we create the model, which we can then print and deliver to you.

You have a 3D file,

but no 3D printer.

All you have to do is send us your file by filling out the form.

Once the print is ready, you will receive your order in a package.

For which projects?

  • Creating a new object.
  • Production of a broken part that no longer exists at the manufacturer
  • MModeling of a project (design, architecture, etc).

Advantages of 3D printing with ICPS

  • Research to find a solution for your needs.
  • Creation of made-to-measure objects.
  • Functional results, ready for use..
  • Choice of materials, colors, and finishes.
  • Save time: fast prototyping.
  • Full range of services.

Equipement

ICPS. Specialist in reverse engineering.

What is reverse engineering?

In classical engineering, the maker of an object creates an elaborate drawing detailing the specifications of the object. The manufacturing is then faithful to that drawing.

However, once drawings and sketches are erroneous, the engineers break apart the system to deduct its structure, its components, their functions, and their interactions.
Once the physical data and characteristics of the object are compiled, a CAD (computer-aided design) drawing is made.
A final reproduction, faithful to the original one, finalizes the process. That is the essence of reverse engineering.

For which projects?

  • To replace defective parts no longer in production.
  • To replace original parts in the case of lost or nonexistent documentation.
  • To analyse competing products.
  • To redesign a part, or to update an outdated product.

Advantages of Reverse Engineering with ICPS

  • All the phases of the process are in one place: the acquisition of the 3D digital data, the implementation of the prototype phases, and the tooling or fabrication
  • A sharp analysis of elements
  • Reduction of time waiting for missing pieces to be produced
  • Lowered delays for the production of a product

Equipement

  • 3D Scanner: fast and precise measurements
  • Use of one of the most widespread modeling softwares: Solidworks®.
