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 Lota 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.
Located on the bayside of Manly and Manly West, Lota is approximately 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD (coming in via Wynnum or Manly Roads) by car and only 5 to 10 minutes from the centre of Wynnum.
Lota is a family-oriented suburb with plenty of parklands and picnic spots for residents wanting to make the most of the outdoor lifestyle. The area has leaped ahead in the past year as buyers spill over from its expensive neighbours.
The Melalueca Environmental Park, golf courses and driving ranges and parklands running along the esplanade in Wynnum and Manly, supplement Lota’s local recreational parks.
Lota is a mix of commercial and residential zoning; housing in the area is made up mostly of single unit dwellings. Lota has become popular with young families looking to live close to Moreton Bay but somewhere more affordable than Wynnum and/or Manly.
For buyers looking for something with a bit more space, some small farms dot the Lota landscape.
A spread out suburb, Lota’s public transport is difficult and most residents use a car to get around. Commuters to the City have access to the Lota rail station running regular trains to the CBD. Access to both the Sunshine and Gold Coasts are easy however, due to the proximity of the Gateway Motorway to the suburb.
Educational and retail needs are serviced by Manly, Wynnum and Manly West. The closest hospital is the Wynnum Hospital on Whites Road.
