High Speed Leads to Lights-Out

This mold maker has become more competitive by establishing a high speed machining process that is predictable enough to confidently run lights-out.


Webinar: Engineering Changes Made Easy

A free webinar on Wednesday, December 12 highlights tools to help shops master the process of engineering change orders.


Video: CT Scanning for Injection Molding

A mold maker discusses its experience with computed tomography scanning for inside and outside inspection of delicate molded parts.


Molten Spray Moldmaking

Rapid solidification creates mold and die tooling that is harder than heat treated components, within build times that are faster than machining.


High-Frequency Production

The additive process that grew out of ultrasonic welding provides an efficient way to produce complex work, including parts with embedded components and even parts made from dissimilar metals.


Auto EDM Wire Changers Compete at the High End

Automatic EDM wire-change capability can improve efficiency and reduce costs for high-end tool and die work, especially parts with small internal radii.


A Big-Picture View of Micromachining

 Matrix Tooling makes injection molds for components that have features you cannot see.


Redefining Plastics Manufacturing

When this company was solely an injection molder, job quantities had to be large. Now, with additive manufacturing, any quantity is right. The company's role and its range of customers have both expanded.


Conformal Cooling: Another Tool in the Toolbox to Build a Better Mold

Moldmakers are just starting to scratch the surface of what can be done with conformal cooling, which involves an additive approach.


How Micromachining Patience Speeds Prototype Production

A molder of tiny, silicone components for the medical industry explains how a patient, conservative approach to micromachining enables it to deliver prototypes faster.
