Toolroom Bed Mill Features Powerful CNC Technology
Southwestern Industries/TRAK Machine Tools showcases its three-axis bed mill and CNC technology at Amerimold.
Southwestern Industries/TRAK Machine Tools features its DPMSX2P three-axis bed mill at Amerimold 2018 in Booth 202. The mill is designed for small lot work and features ProtoTRAK CNC technology, which the company says is powerful but simple to learn and use. The mill joins the company’s product line, which includes bed mills, knee mills, lathes, manual knee mill CNC retrofits, the TRAK 2OP portable VMC and the LPM VMC for high-mix or low-volume work.
In-house sampling of the large coinjection molds it builds gives this moldmaker an edge over the competition.
SPE presented its moldmaker and mold designer of the year awards to Harry Raimondi of Bales Metal Surface Solutions (Downer’s Grove, Illinois) and Chris Hanes of Micro Mold Company Inc. and Plastikos Inc. (Erie, Pennsylvania).
Recently, I reconnected with an industry colleague who will bring some international expertise to the states this May to discuss one of the hot topics in moldmaking today: conformal cooling. And, this will be followed up at Amerimold in June.
