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 Windsor 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.
Windsor is an inner northern suburb of Brisbane. It is largely residential, featuring many old Queenslanders, although there is also considerable retail commercial activity, primarily concentrated along Lutwyche and Newmarket Roads.
Brisbane Lord Mayor Campbell Newman is a resident of the suburb.
Prior to December 1968 the suburb was served by frequent Brisbane City Council tram services along Lutwyche Road, with routes converging from Chermside, Kalinga (until 1962), Stafford, and Grange the latter tram line branching off Lutwyche Road at Maygar street, on the border of Lutwyche and Windsor. These services combined to provide the suburb with an off-peak service of a tram every 2½ minutes along Lutwyche Road in the late 1950s.
Two former tramway electrical substations remain features of Lutwyche Road, near Albion Road. One of these now houses the heritage collection of the Queensland Electrical Engineers Association.
The southern part of Windsor in and around Swan Terrace was known as "Swan Hill" and was named after an early landowner.
Downey Park, the so-called "home of women's sport in Brisbane" is located in Windsor.
The 1974 floods affected the suburb. Various streets close to Breakfast Creek were affected.
The North-South Bypass Tunnel will emerge close to Campbell Street, Bowen Hills. Several businesses along Lutwyche Road in Windsor have been resumed as part of this process and as part of the inner-northern busway project. Several of these businesses have protested the City Council's moves.
Windsor is an Australian town in the state of New South Wales, situated on the Hawkesbury River, and located in the north-western outskirts of the present-day Sydney metropolitan area. The current population is 1864 (Census 2001).
Windsor is the third-oldest place of British settlement on the Australian continent. Settlement at the location was first established about 1791, near the head of navigation on the Hawkesbury River (known as Deerubbin in Dharuk) and taking advantage of the fertile river flats for agriculture. The area was originally called Green Hills, but renamed Windsor (after Windsor in England). The town was officially proclaimed in a Government and General Order issued from Government House, Sydney, dated 15 December 1810, Governor Lachlan Macquarie having "marked out the district of Green Hills", which he called Windsor, after Windsor-on-the-Thames. Whilst in Windsor, Macquarie ordered the main institutions of organised settlement to be erected, such as a church, a school-house, a gaol and a "commodious inn". Of these new buildings, the most imposing was Francis Greenway's Saint Matthew's Anglican Church, of which Macquarie himself chose the site. In 1813 a report was given to Governor Macquarie from Earl Bathurst detailing a proposed invasion of the Hawkesbury River by France. This planned invasion that did not eventuate, targeted the Windsor grainary in order to cut off supply to Sydney, showing the relative importance of this new settlement on a global scale.
Windsor is about 60 kilometres north-west of Sydney, and the location was chosen because of the agricultural potential of the area, and because the location was accessible by coastal shipping from Sydney. It was known as the "bread basket", ensuring the survival of the starving colony. The extensive agriculture caused major silting in the Hawkesbury River, by the 1890s the river had become so blocked with silt, ships could not travel up to Windsor from the coast. By then the railway, in 1864, and the road, in 1814, had been built.
Many of the oldest surviving European buildings in Australia are located at Windsor.
