Elevating Artisanal Chocolate Crafting
SiOCAST's Rigid Molds Unleash Creative Freedom
In the enchanting world of artisanal chocolate crafting, where each creation is a masterpiece, the choice of molds plays a pivotal role in bringing imaginative designs to life.
For companies engaged in low to mid-volume production, navigating the landscape of mold customization options is crucial. This article sheds light on the alternatives in the market, focusing on thermoformed, RTV silicone rubber, and the revolutionary SiOCAST molds, emphasizing their suitability for artisan chocolate manufacturing.
Options in the Market: Tailoring to Artisan Needs
Thermoformed Molds: Renowned for rapid prototyping and intricate designs, thermoformed molds, often complemented by 3D printing, provide a versatile option for artisan chocolatiers. However, limitations arise in the manufacturing process and the creation of rigid molds, which are essential for manual or semi-automatic processes, so they are used for very low-volume needs and projects.
Silicone Rubber Molds: Soft RTV silicone rubber molds offer flexibility for shaping complex designs, making them suitable for small-scale production. While they excel in certain applications, their longer production times, costs per unit, and lower durability can pose challenges for artisan chocolatiers with specific volume needs.
SiOCAST Molds: Redefining Artisanal Chocolate Crafting
SiOCAST emerges as a game-changer, introducing a patented process that combines Plastic Injection Molding with silicone rubber molds. The process starts with an original design that can contain as much detail as needed. This part, or multiple of them, are then 3D printed overnight as masters by high-definition resin 3D printers, like Formlabs 3B+, Asiga, or other brands. Then, those masters are used to create the silicone molds by introducing them inside raw HTV silicone rubber, and after a process called vulcanization, where heat and pressure are applied in a specific machine, the silicone molds are ready to be used in the SiOform1 Plastic Injection molding machine.
