SLIDESHOW: Amerimold Technology Showcase
There’s so much in store for attendees at Amerimold 2017 that it’s hard to contain our excitement!
There’s so much in store for attendees at Amerimold 2017 that it’s hard to contain our excitement! Everyone involved with organizing this year’s event, which will take place June 14-15 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago, is buzzing around, getting all the final details in place to present our guests with one outstanding Amerimold – THE Event for Mold Manufacturing.
Be sure to get to Amerimold on Wednesday morning for the first live equipment demo, presented by Takumi USA in booth 1015 – it begins at 9:15 a.m., then walk over to the Tech Talk Theater (located just behind the MMT booth no. 205) for the first of several informative panel discussions. This one is titled “Putting Additive Manufacturing to Work for You.” Learn how a new hybrid machine virtually eliminates EDM, reduces part warpage and dramatically reduces cycle times when producing mold inserts; how one manufacturer did its own homework to prove out the true benefits and limitations of 3D printing core and cavity stacks used in a mold base; how a new, multi-layer 3D robotic-deposition process for conformal cooling can reduce the number of required baffles or bubbler systems, as well as gun drilling and tapping; plus hear about software solutions for metal additive manufacturing.
We hope to see you there! Access all programming and product demo information, including times and places, here, on the Amerimold Expo website.
Also, take a few minutes to preview (above slideshow) some of the many products and services our exhibitors plan to feature on the show floor.
A look at some of the factors influencing the success of your machining center investment.
The Secrets to Hard Milling Success
With moldmaking the focus is on injection molding or other mold types that use wire EDM or CNC machining centers to create the mold components. Your typical machining center weighs several tons and has a relatively small working envelope compared to a CNC router. The mill’s massive construction lends itself to machining rigid materials with very tight tolerances. While this type of CNC is suited for injection molding components, it isn’t always the ideal tool for the job when we broaden our scope of moldmaking and the current opportunities in the marketplace
