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 Narangba 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.
About 30km north of Brisbane, just off the Bruce Highway on the way to Caboolture, and about 8km west of Deception Bay, Narangba is close to two big lakes - Samsonvale and Kurwongba.
The Alma Park Zoo - one of the prettiest little zoos in Australia - is just a short drive away, too. At Deception Bay, a few minutes away by car, there are some lovely beaches, and great fishing in the estuary or out in the bay itself.
Moreton Island National Park is a few kilometres offshore and ferry services run from Scarborough at the southern end of the bay. Narangaba is just a few kilometres south of Caboolture, administrative centre of the shire of the same name. From Caboolture it is a short, 30-minute drive to the bridge connecting Bribie Island to the mainland. Bribie is separated from the mainland by one of the great aquatic playgrounds and fishing paradise of the Pumicestone Passage whose protected waters offer sanctuary to the protected dugong and many species of birds.
The Pumicestone National Park conserves the waterway and much of Bribie Island's natural rainforest and scenic bushland.
