Mold making can be challenging due to the complexity and demand for quality. Explore how to create the best toolpaths to maximize your CNC machine capabilities and achieve the quality your customers demand.
Advanced toolpaths developed for mold making give you the confidence to run CNC machines unattended around the clock. To get the best results and manufacture molds and dies ready for production the first time, see how your production facility measures up in four key areas.
PREPARATION AND PROGRAMMING
Use CAD software that provides dedicated modeling and preparation tools for electrodes and mold and die surface runoff, to ensure molds are finished and ready for manufacture.
Take advantage of toolpath strategies enhanced specifically for mold and die. Simulate toolpaths and the CNC machine tool, to minimize collision risk, and to generate safe, optimized toolpaths, that provide the confidence to run “lights-out” production.
VERIFICATION AND INSPECTION
Avoid devastating and costly mistakes by validating the accuracy of molds during manufacture, with on-machine verification to confirm quality and drive efficiency.
Combine additive and subtractive manufacturing processes to gain a competitive advantage. Add conformal cooling to your mold designs for shorter molding times and better parts.
Make better molds with stronger CAM strategies
Advanced CAM strategies give manufacturing engineers a variety of ways to produce high-quality, complex molds and dies.
TACKLE THE TOP CHALLENGES
Take on the most common barriers to higher mold making efficiency. In this eBook, you’ll learn how to gain speed and confidence, avoid unexpected costs, and innovate with new manufacturing technologies, including cutting tool geometries and coatings, CNC machine options, and conformal cooling through additive manufacturing.
Every mold and die shop is unique, but the factors that determine how quickly work gets done stay remarkably consistent. In this eBook, you’ll learn how to accelerate every project while streamlining the mold and die workflow from preparation and programming to verification and inspection.
