Hand Scraping Craftmanship
Hand scraping is the process of using either a manually or motorized-driven scraping blade to remove very small amounts of metal from a precision surface to eliminate high spots left behind from the machining process. This provides a flat, accurate bearing surface onto which machine components can be mounted. By increasing the bearing contact area between the mating surfaces, joint rigidity is increased in the machine tool.
The alternative you choose to achieve five-axis machining benefits will be application driven and can have a significant effect on your bottom line.
Mold performance and durability depends on mold base quality, and hole making is a crucial step in the process.
