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 Upper 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.
Upper Mount Gravatt is a suburb in Brisbane, to the south of Mount Gravatt. It has increasingly become an important centre in the last 15 years. In terms of infrastructure, Logan Road and the Pacific Motorway run through it, in addition to the South-East Busway.
Together with Indooroopilly in the west, Chermside, on the north-side, and Carindale in the southeast the suburb has been described as a mini-CBD.It contains the State Netball Centre, a major police district station and a regional ATO office.
As such, Upper Mount Gravatt has become one of the major centres outside of the CBD, especially for those who reside on the south of the city. Westfield Garden City, a large shopping centre opened in 1970, is a regional "hub", containing services and popular restaurants, with a bus interchange and the Upper Mount Gravatt Busway Station immediately below it.
From sheep runs to market gardens, orchards and vineyards to a modern city within a city, Upper Mount Gravatt has travelled a familiar Brisbane path from mid-1850s settlement to the 21st century. Today, the expansive Mt Gravatt commercial and shopping centre is the hub of a large, integrated, regional mix of suburban homes, parkland and educational institutions.
Mt Gravatt and neighbouring Nathan are administrative and learning seats for one of Australia’s largest universities, Griffith, which also has campuses on the Gold Coast, in Logan and in Morningside and Southbank in Brisbane. The Mt Gravatt and Nathan campuses are on the fringe of the wild-life rich Toohey Forest that dominates a large green belt which runs west from Mt Gravatt to Taragindi. The forest park is criss-crossed with bush tracks which the uninitiated walker might find confusing. New visitors, in fact, might be better advised to join one of the Toohey Forest Protection Society's regular, guided Sunday walks. The supervised walks leave from the Toohey Forest car park on Toohey Road at 7am.
