On display in the adjacent Toshiba Machine Co. booth at Plastec West / MD&M West, February 7-9, in Anaheim, California, Diamond Tool & Engineering will highlight a mold it built that incorporates a Roehr Tool dovetail collapsing core and a 3D-printed stainless steel cavity block with conformal cooling. The company built this mold as a solution to the complexities of trying to unthread a polycarbonate part from an existing unscrewing mold without smearing the threads, and to reduce the required 35-40-second cycle time. Diamond Tool says the increase in cooling and simplicity brought on by the added technologies resulted in a reduction in cycle time of more than 50 percent.
