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 Annerley 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.
Annerley is a suburb of Brisbane, Australia located 6km south of the Brisbane CBD. It was named after a town in England.
Much of the suburb is elevated, lying on a ridge that gives views of the city. For many years it was a somewhat rundown suburb, particularly close to main roads, but with gentrification and the rise in the cost of housing, many of the original 'Queenslanders' have been restored to their former glory.
The suburb is of medium population density with many apartment blocks, guest houses and fast-food outlets. The major road in the suburb is Ipswich Road, one of Brisbane's main southerly traffic arteries. There is a shopping precinct and library operated by the Brisbane City Council located at the junction of Ipswich and Annerley Roads. Until April 13 1969 the suburb was served by electric trams, which ran along Ipswich Road.
Annerley B&B Brisbane provides bed and breakfast accommodation for corporate travel, the sports enthusiast and the holiday visitor in a 140 year old historically significant Queenslander style home named 'Ridge Haven'. Her warmth and style echo the ambience and decor of yesteryear, whilst her comfort and facilities are undeniably modern day.
'Ridge Haven' is located south of the Brisbane River, less than 10 minutes to Brisbane city centre, and even closer to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre South Brisbane, Southbank, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), 'Gabba' Cricket Ground Woolloongabba, Mater Hospital, Princess Alexandra and Greenslopes Private Hospitals. Griffith University campuses at Nathan, Mt Gravatt and Southbank plus Queensland University campus at St Lucia are in close vicinity.
The South East Freeway on-ramps to the Gold Coast or the Sunshine Coast Highways are only minutes away.
We extend a warm welcome to previous guests of Carinya at Highgate Hill, Waverley at Paddington and Ascot House at Ascot. Sadly, these popular Brisbane B&B’s will no longer be offering accommodation to Brisbane visitors from early 2007. We assure you of a wonderful stay with us here at ‘Ridge Haven’.
