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 Cannon Hill 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.
Cannon Hill is an inner suburb of Brisbane, Australia. It is 6 km east of the CBD.
Cannon Hill was named after the Weedon family home 'Cannon Hill House'. Built in 1867, the house, which had extensive grounds and a maze, burnt down in 1927.
The population of Cannon Hill has remained relatively stable during the 1990s with 1997 figures showing just fewer than 4,000 people calling the suburb home. This is primarily due to the established nature of the suburb with a lack of vacant land suitable for new land development, resulting in only 23 dwelling approvals during the same period.
Lately however, a number of younger couples have moved into the area capitalising on the affordability of housing in the suburb, which has been eroded since prices started growing strongly about three years ago.
The majority of housing in Cannon Hill was constructed during the 1950s and 1960s, including numerous weatherboard clad three or four bedroom houses supported by wooden stumps. However, in recent years the suburb has experienced an increase in the number of semi-detached houses and duplexes.
Cannon Hill boasts many facilities and services including a major shopping centre, railway station, private schools and numerous parks and recreational reserves.
Considering its close proximity to the city plus the wide variety of facilities and services in the vicinity, Cannon Hill is a suburb with a lot to offer.
According to the ABS 2001 Census there were 4,377 people living in the suburb with a median age of 36. The median individual income was between $300 and $399 per week. Of all occupied private dwellings 74% were either fully owned or being purchased; 21% were being rented.
