Cibatool takes to the air

British Aerospace Regional Aircraft chose Cibatool BM5460 polyurethane tooling board in its recent manufacture of a new master model for the air inlet cowl on the Allied Signal Garrett TPE331-14 engines used on the Jetstream 41 aircraft.

The benefits of using Cibatool were time reduction by a factor of two to three, cost reduction by 16%, improved quality with accuracies to 0.003in, no drawings required, and a wide choice of model material.
