     Airflex Scale Model on Display

     

    Close-UpScale Model on base

     

    Eaton typically shows full size product displays, but for bigger products a full size display can be cumbersome and costly to display at trade shows.  For the new Eaton Airflex Water Cooled Brake a product cut-away from CalCo was just the right solution to show the technology in a lightweight and easily handled manner.  While the actual product is 42″ across and requires a forklift to move at tradeshows, the cutaway can be lifted and moved safely by a tradeshow worker.  CalCo’s solution is a hybrid display using a lightweight scale model with real metal fasteners.  The result shows how the product looks and functions in a lighter weight but realistic looking display.  The scale model is less than half the size of the original at 18 inches across. It has over 450 real metal fasteners but the main body portion is made from lightweight plastic.  The detail on the model makes it indistinguishable from the real product and with a section cutaway, the functionality of the product is on full display. The model is so realistic that it can be actuated as it would be in the field, providing customers with a representative example of the inner workings of the product.  The CalCo display is a great solution for a heavy problem!
