Technology Showcase: Case Studies for MoldMaking
It’s time for another foray into past case study features that have been published in MoldMaking Technology Magazine.

Throwback Thursday: Diamonds in the Roughing
This mold manufacturer discovered significant time and cost savings in a previously unexplored feature of its CAM software.

March MMT Digital Edition Available
From a strategy for better mold finishes and advanced thermal control to avoiding spindle crashes and automated RFID technology, this month's issue has a lot to offer. Check out our digital edition.

Circle Segment Tools and Toolpaths in Action
To take advantage of circle segment cutting tools, the programmer/machinist must generate sophisticated programs that continuously present the tool at a precise angle that is dependent on the slope of surface to be finished and the shape of the tool at any given point in the program.

A Strategy for Better Mold Finishes
Combining advanced tool geometry and complementary CAM tool paths can reduce finish cycle times and improve surface quality.

Injection Mold Inc.
This shop specializes in rapid prototype molds and “quick-delivery” production molds.

Small but Mighty… Talented, That Is
Every once in a while, the editors at MMT are approached by a public relations company with an idea for a mold-manufacturing-related story. Sometimes there’s something unique or intriguing about the mold building company involved, or the people who work there, that catches the eye and we just have to blog about it. Meet Emory Custom Tooling in Gilmer, Texas.

Project-Based Learning – The Rest of the Story
In this month’s issue of MMT, I wrote about an instructor’s strategy for teaching his mechanical engineering students about moldmaking via project-based learning. I couldn’t include absolutely everything this instructor teaches his students, so I thought I’d blog about it.

Project-Based Learning
University education in a shop-like setting helps mold a new generation of enterprising engineers.

From Marines to Manufacturers, Ready to Work
I know from personal experience early in my post-university years that veterans of our military often do not have enough highly-sought-after skills to find a good job once they are honorably discharged. Introducing Workshops for Warriors.

Rough Milling: Speed vs. Power
A look at what works in rough milling applications with solid carbide end mills.

Right Machine, Cutter and Toolpath Formula
CAM tool paths that control tool motion, the right machine and cutter ease the consistent application of a high-speed approach. See the right formula in action.

Redefining CAM Technology for Moldmakers
Tool paths that dynamically adjust tool motion allow faster, safer machining without the need for high-speed equipment.

VIDEO: Dynamic Motion Technology for High-Efficiency CNC Machining
Listen to this mold builder's story about their first experience using tool paths with dynamic motion technology.

The Advantages of Getting Out of the Shop
This mold manufacturer makes a point to give shopfloor-level employees a chance to explore new technology.

CAM Software Streamlines Roughing
Staffers at Accede Mold & Tool detail their experience with Dynamic Motion, a type of Mastercam tool path that enables more efficient roughing by automatically adjusting parameters according to cutting conditions.

2015 Leadtime Leader Awards Honorable Mention: Dynamic Tool & Design - Committing to a Scientific Process
This shop’s recent strides in mold qualification mirror an ongoing transition to a more systematic approach to mold manufacturing. Meanwhile, a culture of ownership ensures a full buy-in from veteran employees as well as fresh talent attracted through extensive workforce development efforts.
