    CEI Enterprises, an Astec Industries company, recently contracted CalCo to produce a 1:20 scale model of a mobile batch cement mixing plant, which measures 16’ x 8’. The concept is centered on highlighting their cement-mixing facility, which can be on a client’s site, and can start cement-mixing operations as quickly or temporarily as needed. The model itself took over two months to build (which is actually fast for this level of detail), and it separates into six individual sub-sections for shipping. The large container and rigid construction help protect the fragile display during the often unpredictable freight shipping process. Models can be created from 3D CAD files or from simple line drawings. CalCo’s hand-built models help show off large and complex solutions in a portable and immersive way. CalCo has been creating head-turning tradeshow and showroom models for over 60 years, so why not trust your next project with proven professionals?
