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 Alexandra Hills 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.
Alexandra Hills is a suburb of 17,342 people located in Redland Shire, Queensland, south east of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Alexandra Hills sits between two major areas of the Redlands, Cleveland to the east and Capalaba to the west.
One of the newest suburbs in the Redlands. It was originally planned as a satellite town in 1961. In September 1965, the name Alexandra Hills was registered with the Place Names Board. The main impetus for the development of Alexandra Hills was the completion of Finucane Road. Building Finucane Road was a slow process which began in October 1951. Before Finucane Road was built, there was just a rough track surrounded by bushland and scattered small farms. The main road between Capalaba and Cleveland was Old Cleveland Road, which went through Birkdale and Ormiston.
The population of Alexandra Hills grew very quickly as houses were built in the new estates. As more houses were built, more people moved in to the area. By 1976 Alexandra Hills was the fastest growing area of the Redland Shire.
Alexandra Hills is home to a thriving community in the heart of the mainland Shire. Stretching between Cleveland and Capalaba, Alex Hills is home to many parks and wildlife reserves, including a reserve retained to protect a significant colony of great glider possums. Alex Hills has shopping and business facilities, including the popular Alexandra Hills Shopping Centre, with a range of restaurants, speciality stores and supermarkets.
