Lost foam casting (vacuum molding technology)
Lost foam casting, also known as vacuum molding technology, which has studied and developed in Vietnam recently, however the Vietnamese product is still not good enough, the surface is quite rough, the quality doesn’t meet customer standard, specially oversea customers like Japan. The difficulties of factory are simple equiment, backward technology, lack of experience…the most important thing is foam mold that will creat high quality product, smooth surface. The main reason is Vietnam now doesn’t have lot of factories, which can produce foam mold to meet quality, almost foam is considered to be same as normal foam in the market.
