  • Circor’s Stunning Model Upstages at PowerGen

    Posted on December 18th, 2014 admin No comments

    Aeroflow SCV

    Circor put the “show” in trade show at the recent PowerGen show in Orlando and CalCo helped them by creating an eye-catching model of their Aeroflow SCV, steam conditioning valve.  The lightweight model has color coding of the interior parts to help visualize flow and real metal fasteners are incorporated into the design for a realistic look.  While the model looks just like the real valve it weighs just a fraction of what the real valve weighs so it is easily transportable.

    As you can see from the photo above, which was taken at the show, the valve was positioned below a video of the same valve color coded in the same way so that together customers could get a complete understanding of how the valve functions. It was a great attention grabber and crowd pleaser!

    If you need a new crowd pleasing display call CalCo at 847-639-3858 or visit our website at www.CalCoCutaways.com

    Henry Pratt Air Valve Cutaways and Cases with Custom Fit Foam

     

    Sometimes all it takes to close a sale is for a customer to see and understand your product. A cutaway sample can be an ideal sales aid in that situation.   Cutaways are often used in a trade show environment but can be very effective as sales tools too.

    CalCo creates cutaways that highlight your product’s unique attributes so your customer can see and understand what sets your product and your company apart from its competitors.  We protect them in sales cases with custom high density foam,  wheels and handles for ease of movement and logos or signage can be added for easy identification so your salespeople will look professional while transporting your product.  If your product is too large or heavy we can make a lightweight, full color 3-D model of it instead which can also be encased.  We can quote in any quantity from one to several hundred.

    If you want to get your product in the hands of your customers, call CalCo at 847/639-3858.

     

  • Industrial Scale Model Lights Up the Show

    Posted on July 25th, 2013 admin No comments

    For years designers have used lifelike scale models to demonstrate a new building project or large scale installation. The power of scale makes it easier to visualize the finished project before it begins. Making changes and describing details becomes easy and in many cases saves countless hours and dollars. A 3D representation is much easier for most people to understand and there is little need for collateral materials.

    When SPX needed a way to show the complex details of a system installation, they called upon CalCo to create a scaled-down representation of how this solution looks. Starting with a 3D file and some line drawings (see below), CalCo was able to recreate this virtual rendering in the real world, to a predetermined scale. With many of the feature components and solutions spanning multiple floors and rooms, removing some of the walls was going to be mandatory, and removing all of them it turns out, was even better. The model can be used at trade shows, customer meetings or wherever a demonstration of the system is needed

    As the display was developing, it became apparent that a solution would be needed to light up the shadowed rooms and further accentuate the details of the installation. The final model came in at around 25 lbs., and included a clear acrylic cover to provide maximum protection while on display.

  • Which cast part weighs 86% less than the other one?

    Posted on July 29th, 2011 admin No comments

    IMG_0834 - Copy

    One of these parts weighs 22 pounds and the other weighs just 3 pounds!  Without lifting them up it is almost impossible to tell the copy from the original but believe me when your salesman tries to move them he will appreciate the difference.  The part was copied using a molded resin and has been painted to look identical to the real part. This technique can be used to create full models or partial models and the copied parts can be integrated into a real unit (as we have done below) or stand on their own. Three dimensional models have been extremely expensive in the past but prices are coming down and the technology has improved so the materials are sturdier and more adaptable which opens up a wider range of uses. Whether you need to create a lightweight display or part for a trade show, for sales calls or any other reason CalCo can make it happen.
