Much of Romania sits on large reserves of natural gas, and people around the country depend on gas providers and equipment manufacturers to heat their homes. One such company is gas equipment manufacturer Elster Aeroteh, who manufactures a range of gas regulators and measurement devices.
When testing a new gas regulator, Elster Aeroteh first tried a CNC-machined test part for the regulator housing. But the geometry being as complicated as it was, they couldn’t produce it to the accuracy required for reliable test data. It wouldn’t even fit properly on their assembly.
That’s when Elster Aeroteh enlisted Romanian CAD/CAM service provider LogiCAD, which was able to produce complex cast aluminum test parts from wax patterns created on the ProJet 3510 CPX. And they did in about 12 days from CAD file to final test part.
