Emuge Corp. will be holding a Tech Expo November 7, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at its expanded 26,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that more than doubles the size of the company’s U.S. headquarters and manufacturing/technology center to over 50,000 total sq. ft. Tours of the new facility, introductions to the latest tapping and milling tool technology, as well as live machining demonstrations, will be given. Manufacturing professionals are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The event will be held at the company’s North American headquarters and manufacturing/technology center at 1800 Century Drive in West Boylston, Massachusetts. An introduction overview on the facility expansion and increased manufacturing capabilities will kick-off the event, followed by a presentation on new products and technologies. Exciting innovations on the horizon such as the new patented Taptor drill and tap solution, as well as new end mills designed for hybrid/additive manufacturing platforms, will be highlighted. In addition, new tool holding technologies for tapping and milling will be debuted. Attendees will also see live machining demonstrations, including for the first time in North America, a live Punch Tap application. Other demonstrations will include the latest in circle segment machining and other five-Axis milling applications on Hurco and Hermle machining centers.
A catered lunch will conclude the event. To register, RSVP by October 21st by calling 508-595-3605 or by clicking www.emuge.com/signup/tech-expo.
An injection mold expert speaks out against high-cavitation molds. There is a time and a place for them, he contends, but they should not be chosen for financial considerations alone.
Using aluminum tooling instead of traditional tools steels reduces cycle time and costs, but requires up-front, open communications between moldmaker, molder, material supplier and hot runner manifold supplier.
Mold shops will thrive if they practice an ‘all-aspects’ process to HSM, which includes the machine, cutting tool, toolholder, proper balance and application support.
