We provide vacuum cast parts also called urethanes casting process. This process is a great way to get a small batch of parts that are indistinguishable from injection molded parts. They can be self coloured and textured in the mold, just like real injection molded parts, but at a fraction of the cost. A range of materials are available, the most popular choice is simulated ABS. These parts can be over-molded with rubber effects. It is possible to mold in thread inserts or other inserts if required. This process is well suited to small batches, in most cases up to and around 100 parts. Accuracy and appearance of parts produced using this process is very good.
Vacuum cast parts are practically indistinguishable from injection molded parts. This process is the best option for batches of complex parts that have not yet been approved for production. Many millions of dollars have gone up in smoke because prototypes were not made first. Vacuum cast parts that are copies of a 3D printed parts which in turn are accurate representations of Brisbane 3D CAD data, and are a sure fire way to make sure you have got it right before you sign the big tooling contracts. There are a wide range of materials available with different properties, if you would like to know more, please get in touch with us and see what peace of mind costs.
We offer a wide range of surface treatment services, including: high polishing and painting on 3D printed parts and vacuum cast parts. We can also vacuum cast material with different colours without applying paint with the aid of the pantone colour code.
Brisbane is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of Queensland, as well as the third largest city in Australia, with a metropolitan population of just under 2.0 million. It is set close to the Pacific Ocean, and is situated beside the Brisbane River on plains between Moreton Bay and the Great Dividing Range in south-eastern Queensland.
The city is named in honour of Sir Thomas Brisbane who was Governor of New South Wales from 1821-1825. The original settlement grew from a harsh penal colony established at his direction in 1824 at Redcliffe, 28km to the north. The colony was moved to what is now the location of the Brisbane CBD in 1825, and free settlers were permitted from 1842. It was chosen as the capital when Queensland was proclaimed a separate colony, in 1859. The city developed slowly until after World War II, when it played a central role in the Allied campaign as the South West Pacific headquarters for General Douglas MacArthur.
More recently, Brisbane hosted the 1982 Commonwealth Games and 1988 World's Fair (Expo '88), and also the Goodwill Games in 2001.
Brisbane has a humid subtropical climate with hot, humid summers and dry, mild winters. From late Spring through to early Autumn, thunderstorms are common over the greater Brisbane area, with the more severe events accompanied by large damaging hail stones, torrential rain and destructive winds.
