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 Mount Gravatt 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.
Mount Gravatt is the name of both a major suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia and a prominent hill in this suburb. The suburb is situated in the south-east of the city and was one of Brisbane's largest. This was before it was divided into Mount Gravatt East, Upper Mount Gravatt and Mount Gravatt South; the last being changed to Wishart in the early 1990s.
Mt Gravatt is named after Lieutenant George Gravatt who was the commander of the Moreton Bay Settlement for two months in 1839, before being transferred to India where he died in 1843.
Between 1953 and 1969 electric trams connected the suburb with Brisbane's Central Business District (CBD), running along Logan Road. Since then public transport has been provided by buses operated by Brisbane Transport.
The people of greater Mount Gravatt are represented by the State parliamentary seats of Mansfield and Mount Gravatt and the federal seats of Bonner, Griffith and Moreton. The changing socio-economic conditions of the area have made the seats conducive, at least federally, to the Liberal-National Coalition Government.
The Mt Gravatt Showgrounds are an important centre for cultural and community activities and the site of the annual Mt Gravatt Show, an agricultural fair. The grounds are positioned on Logan Road, opposite the mega-church, Garden City Christian Church.
