End Mill Series Reduces Wear and Lasts Longer
RobbJack highlights its die/mold series end mills. Made with a revolutionary coating technology, the company’s DM/MDM carbide end mills reduce wear by 909%, and last over 450% longer than comparable tools in hard metal applications. The DM/MDM carbide end mill offers tighter tolerances, lasts longer in difficult areas like parting lines and produces better finishes that reduce or eliminate the need for polishing.
Along with the Die/Mold series, the company announces the FMHV series end mills, designed for high horsepower and high velocity machining in aluminum moldmaking. The FMHV series tools feature patented mirror edge geometry, which takes deeper Z-depths of cut, reducing vibration. The FMHV tools are ideal for high speed machining of deep pockets and thin walls.
Understanding the effects of injection on the core, slide and associated components is critical to selecting the best side-action methods for a given application. This first of two articles will discuss the basic physics underlying all side-actions.
Correct alignment lock selection will reduce maintenance costs, molding downtime and increase part quality over the mold’s entire life.
