  • Mold Making Technology (.pdf)
    Most plastic injection molds require surface restoration during the life of the mold. Specialty welders are needed because of the precise nature of restoration and the value of the die/mold. The difficulty in restoring delicate molds is in limiting the heat to the part, so as not to change the
  • Five-Axis Machining Is a Key Requirement for High-Precision Molds - 12/06
    in the medical world, so does the North American mold and die industry with some innovative products and processes. The aerospace and defense industries have a history of developing products that cross over into mainstream use. One notable example is the global positioning system, the ubiquitous
  • Practical Welding: Precision Instruments (.pdf)
    Most plastic injection molds require surface restoration during the life of the mold. Specialty welders are needed because of the precise nature of restoration and the value of the die/mold. The difficulty in restoring delicate molds is in limiting the heat to the part, so as not to change the
  • Automating the moldmaking process
    New software tools take the grunt work out of mold design and manufacturing. Delcam's Die Wizard automatically finds a product model's split line and forms the two die halves. PS-Moldmaker generates a 3D, solid-model assembly of the mold and tooling. The approach is said to reduce errors and speed
  • Retrospective: Machining - Machining Madness - 08/08
    moving offshore looking for lower cost dies and molds for the industry back then, " he recalls. "For some time, the qualified finished die or mold with the technology that had been available was very labor intensive, and the level of expertise that existed in the United States also was dwindling
  • Novel Manufacturing Technique Produces Parts Lighter and Stronger than Aluminum
    "thixotropy, " the property of certain fluids to exhibit changes in viscosity depending on sheer stresses. MAG produces net or near-net parts. ), that provide MAG say the technique combines plastic injection molding and die casting (a process in which liquid material is poured into a mold with a shaped
  • Magnesium
    castability, but deeply ingrained misconceptions often prevent designers from specifying it as a die-cast material. However, what is true of magnesium as a generic material is not true of today's die-casting alloy. The new high-purity alloy, combined with advances in fluxless, hot-chamber die
  • The Ins & Outs of high-performance machining
    to the milling of highly sculpted parts typical to the mold/die and aerospace industries, and usually does not address other common operations such as drilling and boring. High-performance machining is a more apt term because it encompasses all types of machining operations and involves more than high feeds
