When to Mill Keeps Changing

Technology improvements steadily expand the range of tool and die parts that justify high speed machining.


CAM Software Is The Driving Force

Doug Noxell knew he had the right software for machining to zero, so he created a shop to add the rest of the capability.


Pushbutton Die Making

High speed milling let this automotive forging company reverse a decades-old practice and bring die making back in house.


A Better Process For Bases And Plates

In a mold shop, the model of the customer's part gets used in two parallel processes. One of these is core and cavity machining, in which CAM software generates complex tool paths to let CNC machining cut the shape of the part in metal.


Sparking Better Designs

By automating repetitive splitting and electrode-design work, an Ohio mold and die shop spurs creativity and expands EDM applications.


CNC Hole Making Without A Programmer

With NC programs created automatically, this shop goes straight from the designer to the machine tool.


Automating EDM Electrode Design For Mold Making

Many EDM electrode design steps are being automated, making electrode production faster and easier. Developments promise to streamline situations where EDMing is unavoidable, as well as make EDM attractive as the most efficient machining process in ...


PC CAM Selection In An Evolving Market

In a mature market, choosing the right software for the personal computers you use to create programs for your CNC machine tools can be tricky. Here are some guidelines to help you find the software that best meets your needs.


Making Sense Of Model Data

Designs often arrive incomplete downstream. There may be no changing that. But these tools can reduce the amount of time spent on reworking customer models.


Delcam's Transition Reflects Trends in Tool Making

Mold and die makers familiar with Delcam, the UK-based software company probably associate that company with Duct, the CAD/CAM system for complex 3D forms. Users of Duct form an elite but loyal group. The system is difficult to master, but most who ...
