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 Strathpine 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.
Strathpine is a suburb in Northern Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. It is home to the Pine Rivers Shire Council and many local businesses. The area contains a medium sized Westfield shopping centre.
The area now known as Strathpine was originally developed in the 1860s as an addition to the North Pine settlement during the Gympie gold rush. In the late 19th century, the area was known for sugar and rum production, with several sugar mills and distilleries in the area. The area was first named Strathpine by Queensland Rail in the 1880s. The first school opened in Strathpine in the 1910s.
The population of the area boomed in the 1940s after the opening of a large army camp and airfield which helped both Australian and American forces during World War II. Development slowly increased until the 1960s when Brisbane’s rapidly growing population expanded into the area. Most of the farms where sold off and the area quickly grew into a residential and commercial hub.
