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 Hawthorne 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.
Less than four kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD Hawthorne is one of Brisbane’s popular riverside suburbs that has undergone a transformation over the last 10 years.
Many older homes have been renovated to their former glory by couples and families moving into the area. The renovation of these older homes has had a positive influence on the median sale price of the suburb.
Situated along Brisbane River, Hawthorne offers buyers proximity to the city with a suburban atmosphere. Hawthorne Park is popular with sports lovers while water lovers only have to travel a couple of suburbs to Colmslie Reserve in Morningside to be able to launch their boats onto the Brisbane River.
Services in the area have adapted to accommodate the strong demand for property. City shopping and Cannon Hill Shopping Plaza offer the closest major retailers and complement local stores in the suburb.
Hawthorne doesn’t have its own rail station (the closest is Morningside), however regular bus services and CityCat ferry services departing from Gordon Scott Street ensure residents can access the city and other major centres easily. Residents are also reasonably close to the Gateway Motorway and the Southeast Freeway.
Schools in neighbouring suburbs including Bulimba Primary School, Balmoral High School, and Cannon Hill Anglican College complement Lourdes Hill College situated on the river and within the suburb’s boundaries. University students are also within 15 minutes of the Griffith University Campus at Morningside.
