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 Sunnybank 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.
Sunnybank is both an area or district and a suburb in Brisbane,Queensland, Australia. The suburb of Sunnybank is only a small part of the area generally known as Sunnybank, which also includes Banoon, Nathan, Robertson, MacGregor, Runcorn, and Sunnybank Hills.
Rolling hills and the headwaters for both Stable Swamp Creek and Bulimba Creek have drawn both people and wildlife to the Sunnybank area. The Jagara Indigenous people were the first to visit the area. The Sunnybank district was a farming area from the mid 1800s. With rich, red soil, it was highly productive. By the first part of the 20th century, farmland increasingly gave way to suburbia.
Development in the area was further encouraged with accommodation needed for troops from allied nations in World War 2 and in 1964. General Motors Holden established a car manufacturing plant on Bradman Street at Acacia Ridge, creating a major source of employment for the entire city of Brisbane. By the late 1980s, there was little evidence of Sunnybank ever being a home to large fruit plantations. With the Commonwealth games being held in 1982 at the Queen Elizabeth II sporting complex, now known as the Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre, and Expo 88 years later, Brisbane and its suburbs like Sunnybank were shown to the world. In the mid 1990's the area became the 'melting pot' of Brisbane, with an increased number of people from Asia settling in Sunnybank and its neighbouring suburbs. When this happened the look of the entire area changed, especially around Sunnybank's outlying business district at the intersection of Mains road and McCullough street.
A shopping centre, Sunnybank Plaza, is located at the intersection of Mains road and McCullough street. Other retail areas include Sunny Park Shopping Centre and Sunnybank Hills Shoppingtown. It is also the home of the Sunnybank Dragons Rugby Club and the Souths Sunnybank Magpies Rugby League Club.
Sunnybank plaza has a large bus station, which serves as one of the major stops on most bus routes in the area. Queensland Rail operate a train service through the Sunnybank area. The Beenleigh railway line runs through the area, and in the Sunnybank area the train stations include (in order, going out-bound) Banoon, Sunnybank, Altandi and Runcorn. The bus stop outside Altandi train station is also a popular bus stop along Mains Road.
