  • How to Choose the Right CNC Router

    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

  • Solving Mold Alignment Problems with the Right Alignment Lock

    Correct alignment lock selection will reduce maintenance costs, molding downtime and increase part quality over the mold’s entire life.

  • Moldmakers Deserve a Total Production Solution

    Stability, spindle speed and software are essential consideration for your moldmaking machine tool.
