The Most Viewed Products of 2018
As 2018 comes to a close, we enjoy looking back to review various aspects of the year. Today MoldMaking Technology brings readers a slide show of the most-viewed products introduced. It is interesting to see that five-axis machining and additive manufacturing are dominant among these 15 products, just as they were the dominant technologies at IMTS in September. Still, EDM, software, mold materials, mold cleaning, mold components, workholding products, and cutting tools are also represented here. Take a few minutes to review what was new in 2018 that resonated most with MMT readers.
When evaluating new processes for mold manufacture, jig grinding is worth a second look as machine manufacturers have now added high accuracy features to guarantee repeatable results.
This article explores the applications in which wire EDM has found its way. It will examine the reasons for this new interest in a supposedly unrelated machining method, and its impact on moldmaking, both physically and fiscally.
To achieve the ultimate capability and level of productivity from your wire EDM on a consistent, repeatable and reliable basis, regular maintenance is a required task.
