CAMX 2018 13 TUESDAY | October 16, 2018 Closed cell foam adapts to various applications, processes Elliott Co. of Indianapolis (Indianapolis, IN, US) is featuring its ELFOAM rigid unfaced polyisocyanurate (urethane) closed cell foam core. ELFOAM products are available in 2-, 3-, 4- and 6-lb/ft 3 densities supplied as blocks, sheets and custom shapes. With a temperature range from -297°F to +300°F and compatibility with polyester, vinyl ester and epoxy resins, the foam can be used for a variety of applications. It is compatible with an array of processes including hand layup, sprayup, vacuum infusion, resin transfer molding, lamination, pultrusion and filament winding. In terms of physical characteristics, it is said to offer high strength-to-weight ratios, chemical resistance, thermal insulation, and Class 1 fire performance, as well as low water permeability. It also can be easily machined, perforated and sliced. Elliott Co. of Indianapolis, Booth U51 Cutting table features automated ply stacking Eastman Machine Co. (Buffalo, NY, US) is showing the Talon 25x cutting table, designed to automatically pull stacked material plies from the spreading table to a modular, bristle-block conveyor bed for reciprocating knife cutting ranging to 1.18 in 3 /cm of compressed material goods. High-speed, precision cutting demonstra- tions of fiberglass, fiberglass insulation, aramid and other technical textiles are being featured. The Talon features a quick-change cutting knife and single-coated diamond sharpening disk to provide a robust cutting edge. It also features the company's Recipro-Cool Drive Assembly, an internal crank cooling system engineered to reduce heat and wear/tear to the horizontal crank mechanism that drives the knife up and down. The Talon is optionally available with a cutting capacity of 3 in/7.5 cm, several widths and a variety of vacuum blower configurations. The system also offers what is said to be easy access to the knife system and assembly parts, to help simplify daily maintenance procedures. Eastman Machine Co., Booth 3331
