Envizage will unveil its new model-making technology, CAP-CARBON, and new range of classroom-friendly Denford micro-CNC machines on Stand 3519 during National Manufacturing Week 2007 at the Melbourne Exhibition & Convention Centre, from May 22 to 25.
Envizage will also demonstrate its Modelmaker laser scanner on its stand, as well as provide information about its roto-moulding service.
A broad range of services are provided by Envizage, including rapid prototyping, model making and low-volume manufacturing. Envizage also supplies designers with software from Autodesk (Maya, Studio, ImageStudio, Motion Builder, Showcase and Sketchbook Pro) and hardware from Hewlett Packard. Envizage also offers accredited training and services/support.
Model making services fall into four categories namely concept, functional, presentation and pre-production. Concept models help a designer see and feel what their idea will look like in the flesh. Functional models are tough and durable to help prove a design, and can include working hinges and latches.
Presentation models are ideal for when a designer has to impress, or needs real accuracy to verify the design for manufacture. Pre-production models are a short run of mouldings, castings in any material, or low volume tooling. This is a highly cost-efficient means of proofing a product before committing to manufacturing it.
Envizage can produce models in materials such as metals, plastics, rubber seals, see-through, and in colour or metallised surfaces. Envizage helped a customer make a life-size ride-on mower with working electrics to show resellers before the national launch.
Envizage also created a lifelike scale replica of a million dollar mining vehicle so that the client could take it to international trade shows.
