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 Blackbutt 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.
Blackbutt is a town in the South Burnett region of Queensland, Australia. The town is located on the D'Aguilar Highway, in the Nanango Shire Local Government Area, 166 kilometres north west of the state capital, Brisbane. At the 2001 census, Blackbutt had a population of 558.
European settlement in the Blackbutt area began in 1842, when the Scott family established Taromeo station. In 1887, the Scott family ceded land to found both Blackbutt and its neighbouring town of Benarkin. Blackbutt is named for the Blackbutt trees (Eucalyptus pilularis) native to the area. Farms were established in the area and the discovery of gold in the area in the late 1800s lead to population growth in the town. Blackbutt was connected to the Brisbane Valley rail line in 1905. The line was closed in the 1980s and is now a popular rail trail.
Situated at the top of the Blackbutt range, you will find an almost perfect low-humidity climate of crisp winters and cool summers. As you ascend the range you immediately smell the pine and a tingle in the wind. The air is clearer and you breathe easier, you have left the pollution below and are now 474 metres above sea level.
Blackbutt is a popular spot for campers, bush-walkers, backpackers, astronomers, 4WD enthusiasts and artists, families who want a day trip that is different.
