Driving British films forward

Control Techniques' simple AC drive, the Commander SK, has been selected as an essential component in a revolutionary rotational casting machine designed and manufactured by Ethical Innovatory Solutions (EIS). One of the first companies to own a Rotacaster is Cod Steaks, a a world leading special effects and model making company who made all the props for Oscar winning Wallace and Gromit film Curse of the Were Rabbit. Production capacity of props has significantly improved due to the installation of the dual axis machine that evenly distributes moulding compound within an empty mould, to create a hollow and light weight model. Matt Sanders, Construction Supervisor and Model Designer for Cod Steaks says: "It is at least three times faster than thermo-casting. For example, the new machine gives a perfect, bubble-free casting in just a matter of minutes."
