JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corporation’s TOYOTECH 2019 displayed many options for five-axis machining, including new offerings. The event was held May 14-16 at the company’s headquarters in Arlington Heights, Illinois. 

Toyoda featured the newest machining, application and tooling innovations for hard metal operations and complex aerospace components. Industry partners were also on hand to demonstrate how to optimize production capabilities through automation and smart manufacturing platform solutions via the Industrial Internet of Things or, as the company puts it, “Internet of Everything.”

In addition to having 12 machines on site with multiple live demonstrations running throughout the event, industry partners and influencers presented a variety of learning sessions. Machines included horizontal and vertical machining centers, bridge machines, grinders and Takisawa Taiwan Turning Centers.

    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
