Magnetic Chuck Enables Simultaneous 5-Sided Machining in 1 Setup
MoldMaking Technology

Schunk’s Magnos magnetic chuck enables all five sides of a workpiece to be machined simultaneously in one setup.

Increasing Five-Axis Accuracy
MoldMaking Technology

Probing and five-axis auto-tuning can correct machine misalignments in minutes, not hours.

Will the Coalition Continue?
Modern Machine Shop

It almost certainly will. As the Whitehall Township Tooling Coalition nears the end of the tax incentive that led to its creation, this alliance of eight tool and die shops finds so much value in the partnership that the group is on track to last. Here are lessons in how and why to enter into an alliance of shops.

Portable CNC Suited for Second-Operation Machining
MoldMaking Technology

Southwestern Industries will showcase its Trak 2OP portable CNC. Designed for second-operation machining, the control streamlines a shop’s workflow by bringing an additional spindle to an operator idled by the cycle time of a primary machine.

Hybrid Technology Combines Sintering with Milling
MoldMaking Technology

MC Machinery Systems will showcase the Lumex Avance-25’s metal laser sintering hybrid technology, which combines metal laser sintering with high-speed milling to produce complex molds and parts using digital engineering and 3D data.

Machining (via the machine tool and cutting tool) shapes metal workpieces. Understanding both traditional and advanced machining techniques is critical to overcoming the various dimensional and finish challenges associated with mold machining. Processes include milling, drilling, grinding, high-speed machining, five-axis, hard milling, micro machining, large mold machining, multi-tasking, waterjet and laser. Workholding is also important.
