Throwback Thursday: The Multi Approach

I consider myself quite the multitasker. Someone who is able to focus on multiple projects with equal efficiency. Well, most of the time anyway. But when it comes to mold manufacturing, multitasking can take the shop's operations to a whole new level ... every time. This look-back at our archives features an article that breaks down the barriers to multitasking and explains how it can optimize both production and profit in milling and high-speed cutting operations.

Mutlitasking machines can offer increased performance in machining molds, large or small. These machines offer smaller tools and higher spindle speed for small-depth milling yet a large work area.​

I consider myself quite the multitasker. Someone who is able to focus on multiple projects with equal efficiency. Well, most of the time anyway. But when it comes to mold manufacturing, multitasking can take the shop's operations to a whole new level ... every time. This look-back at a 2014 article by DMG MORI breaks down the barriers to multitasking and explains how it can optimize both production and profit in milling and high-speed cutting operations.

Multitasking is an area of interest for those in mold manufacturing because it can greatly reduce or eliminate benchwork time. The multitasking machine’s real value is in the precise finishing applications it provides. The appropriate machine can be an ideal solution for those who are more concerned with finishing applications than with roughing and with having those applications completed quickly

Check out the machine considerations here as well as a video demonstrating the process.
