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.


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.


Micromachining Powder Metal on a VMC

By refining its micromachining process for powder metal tool steels, this shop has reduced production costs, lead times and secondary bench work for complex tooling components.


How Cameras Improve Capacity

Web cameras provide an inexpensive way to bring remote processes together, and to improve timing and confidence in unattended machining.


The Case for Software-as-a-Service ERP

The owner of a die manufacturing business describes why he prefers to subscribe to ERP software rather than buying it.
