FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY IN FOUR EASY STEPS


1. At the beginning of each project, DialAct engineers will gain a full understanding of your goals and discuss a sketch or an engineering drawing. When we develop final technical documentation, we will organize joint reviews to make sure the developing product matches your original ideas.

2. The second step is to fabricate a master pattern or a master model. The masters can be created in a variety of materials, such as aluminum, acrylic, polycarbonate and many others. When the mold can be machined directly or you have a 3D model of the desired part which can be used as a master pattern, this step may be eliminated.

3. After the master pattern is ready, your project enters the mold making stage. The mold making process often requires not only engineering, but also artistic skills. Usually, RTV silicone is used for flexible molds, and plastics or aluminum are used for hard molds. The choice of the mold type is based on the final design and the material used for casting your parts. Threads, grooves, holes and undercuts are typically designed into the mold, giving you superior strength and improved consistency from part to part. Often our molds can be easily modified to accommodate design changes.

4. The fourth and final step is to cast an article in the mold(s). By selecting the proper thermoset resins, virtually any required combination of physical properties (such as hardness, density, impact strength, fire retardation, chemical resistance, etc.) can be achieved.
