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 Drewvale 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.
The suburb of Drewvale is 19.5 South of the Brisbane CBD and borders the neighbouring suburbs of Calamvale, Parkinson and Algester.
The area is mainly made up of examples of newer homes anywhere between 25 and 5 years old – especially low and high set brick homes. There are some examples of older style homes left over from the early days of the suburb.
The area is sparsely populated with a semi-rural feel, although a number of recent residential developments are changing the make-up of the suburb. There was a lot of farmland prior to the development of new housing estates with a few houses still on large acreage blocks.
The main road to Brisbane is the Beaudesert Road and the Logan Motorway is located close by making it convenient to get to the Gold Coast.
