Silicone mold is one of the ways to make a prototype. The advantages are fast time, low cost and low processing failure.More than 20 identical products can be made using a silicone mold.The life of the silicone die is about 25 times.
The production steps of the silicone mold can be divided into three steps:
1. Prototype: before making the silicone mold, the prototype should be made.The prototype can use the more common ABS material, CNC machining can.
2. Silica gel mold: after the prototype is ready, start making the silicone mold.After eight hours of drying, the silicone mold was cut and the prototype was removed.The silicone mold is ready.
3. Injection mold: inject the liquid gum material into the silica gel mould, and then dry it.
