Epoxy paste cuts modelling costs

To produce large, dimensionally accurate master models at one-third of the cost of using conventional materials, Visioneering is using an epoxy machineable, seamless modelling paste from Ciba Specialty Chemicals.

The paste is a machine applied material that is well suited to producing 6m long and larger models that can hold the dimensional tolerances required by the aerospace and automotive industries.

Visioneering says that, with the material, it uses less material and less labour on large aerospace and automotive projects, so cutting costs while achieving greater accuracy.
