Beer Tap Handles : Mold Making : Resin Casting : Champion Brewing

We produced a few small runs of manufactured of beer tap handles for Champion Brewing Company using 3D printing, silicon mold making and epoxy resin casting. This project requires much in the way of finishing details. Several colors of paints, some in grooves, along with thin water decals and several clear coats to seal the decals in. Given the level of detail we were unable to produce the volume needed to keep up with the company sales. Kudos to them for having an awesome in demand product. The company and the beer both rule. As a reference we can probably do a run of 25 handles about once every three months. More suitable for one offs or lower volume breweries.
