D-M-E’s (Madison Heights, MI) contour roughing service for moldmakers saves moldmakers time and machine wear by milling out nearly 90 percent of steel plates before shipping them. This service also reduces leadtimes, extends in-house capacity and allows moldmakers to focus on high-value machining of core and cavity plates. In the contour roughing process, customers send their complex core and cavity CAD files to the company, which uses industry-leading CAM software to program 3D cavity roughing tool paths, generating a rough-milled surface. This leaves machining stock for finishing by the customer. Moldmakers can use the same CAM software to seamlessly transition from rough milling to finish milling right where the company left off—further saving time and production costs.
