Polymer Casting take on metals
CASTING epoxy/quartz composites can be precisely cast to size without secondary machining
A steel mold for casting digital scanner bases incorporates 160 vinyl tubing vacuum lines. The lines attach to the sides of steel mold and stay with the casting whe it is demolded. The 18-in-diameter semicircular drum has an ascast accuracy of 0.001-in.TIR.
Polymer/aggregate makes up all structural components of this milling machine except for the table
The impossible part. A 270 ° cylindrical scanner with 16 vaccum grooves, 2 meters long, cast to 0.001-in.TIR
Optical scanner base, cost 50% less than aluminum casting, took 2 days to produce versus 3 months for an aluminum casting and the machine operated 40% faster with better resolution. It was cast to .001" flatness overall and had multiple foam cores.
70,000 lb machining center, cast using a wood mold. Ways were grouted to tolerance.
Pump base used to mount pump and motor for chemical pumping
High defination film imaging base with 2,000 rpm rotating drum.
This base is the heart of one of the world's most accurate hi-tech precision optical instruments in production today.
Laser scanner base for film imprinting for high definition color
