Investment Casting Productivity Solution

Replace WAX with LOST SiOCAST injection molded plastic to unlock unmatched speed and industrialization in Investment casting workflows

Lost SiOCAST

Our solution for the Jewelry Manufacturing

At SiOCAST, we understand that time is of the essence in the jewelry manufacturing industry.

Our technology offers a game-changing advantage over traditional wax injector machines – time-saving.

At SiOCAST, we've harnessed the power of thermoplastic injection molding in silicone rubber molds to transform the jewelry industry.

Traditional wax injectors are limited to injecting a few pieces per mold, and then the wax requires more time to cool down and open the mold. In contrast, our SiOCAST solution is designed for efficiency.

Quality and detail on par with 3D printing

at SiOCAST, we understand that jewelry manufacturing demands the highest level of detail and quality. Our technology ensures that each piece you create exhibits the same meticulous detail as 3D printing. With SiOCAST, you can achieve the finest details while benefitting from the speed and efficiency of injection molding.

case study

Crafting Barcelona's iconic "Panot de Flor" necklace using Lost-SiOCAST.

In the heart of Barcelona, there lies a symbol that transcends time and culture—the "Panot de Flor." This intricate, floral-patterned tile, designed by the renowned architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch during the Modernisme era, has become an iconic representation of the city itself. Inspired by its beauty and heritage, SiOCAST embarked on a creative journey to showcase the power of investment casting in the jewelry industry.

Model design: 30 minutes
Master Printing time: 12 parts, total 13,5 hours
Mold Manufacturing time: 2 hours
Injection manufacturing: 720 parts / h

step 1: 3D Design and master printing

Our journey began with a digital canva in Rhino, where we meticulously recreated the "Panot de Flor" pattern in a 3D design. The details of this emblematic symbol were brought to life virtually. Once our digital masterpiece was complete, we utilized cutting-edge 3D (SLA/DLP/LCD) printing technology to craft a master pattern.

Step 2: Silicone mold creation

Like every SiOCAST project, we transitioned to the next phase by creating a precision silicone mold with the SiOmold system. This mold would serve as the template for replicating the "Panot de Flor" pattern in multiple castings. The mold was carefully vulcanized with the SiOpress to withstand the high temperatures required for the casting process.

Step 3: Injection in SiOform 1

With our proprietary SiOres CAST56 resin formulated for investment casting, we achieve a remarkable injection process using the unique SiOform 1, our compact injection molding machine. This process brings your unique "Panot de Flor" design to life with incredible detail. The SiOform 1 boasts an impressive productivity score of 40 cycles per hour (or 60 cycles per hour when paired with the SiOfuse 1) – ensuring efficiency and speed in your manufacturing workflow. This combination of cutting-edge technology and specially formulated resin is what makes SiOCAST the perfect choice for your jewelry and investment casting needs.

Step 4: Preparation for investment Cast

After the SiOform 1 has successfully injected SiOres CAST56 to create your intricately designed "Panot de Flor" necklace molds, it's time to proceed to post-processing. SiOres CAST56 has been meticulously engineered to facilitate this stage, making it an ideal wax replacement.

In the post-processing phase, the molds undergo investment casting. This step involves the transformation of the resin molds into metal pieces, giving them the strength, durability, and luster you desire. SiOres CAST56 is designed to melt seamlessly in this process, leaving no residue behind.
