The company uses 3D printing to create conformal-cooling mold inserts in addition to production parts.
The benefits of advanced NURBS functionality.
Metal laser sintering hybrid milling combines metal powder 3D laser sintering with high speed milling finishing into one machining system.
The business case for five-axis machining.
Manufacturing with fewer setups.
The Mega-Cell is a production system that ties together all available opportunities to automate and control the process.
Tolerances and finishes on the Buss Precision's molds are tailored to the specific project, but most work is held to +/-.0002 tolerance on multi-cavity components, cavity, cores and parting lines.
Mold manufacturers who take the time to educate themselves on cylindrical grinding will reap the benefits of the advantages achieved with cylindrical grinding in their mold manufacturing operations—decreased costs, superior surface finishes and high flexibility.
Eliminating chatter is a great way to improve surface finish when performing CNC milling. Okuma's Machining Navi M-i detects chatter and automatically adjusts spindle speed to eliminate chatter, thus improving surface finish. This is a terrific tool for the mold/die industry.
Machines with linear motors instead of ballscrews have increased productivity for one die maker.
