Another Angle On HSM

The savings in setup time were welcome enough, but this mold maker found that a 3+2 machining center also accelerated its use of high speed machining.


The Progress of a Progressive Die Maker

This shop sees no long-term threat in the reality of lower prices. Machine tool investments related to various die components allow the shop to use skilled labor more efficiently.


Webinar: Tool Shop Optimization Case Studies -- Survival of the Quickest

This webinar from Cimatron describes how winning mold and die makers are able to use their speed to produce high quality tools at lower cost, and respond to customers more effectively.


When to Mill Keeps Changing

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


Rapid Tooling: Poised for Rapid Takeoff

Developments in rapid tooling make this technology even more attractive for quick, low-cost, customizable, and even environmentally aware manufacturing.


Optimized Mold Temperature Control Using DMLS

This white paper describes the use of additive manufacturing to produce mold tooling with conformal cooling channels.


Fast via Machining and Molding

Thanks to a cluster of processors running a home-grown algorithm and lean manufacturing shops in the U.S., Japan and Europe, Proto Labs can deliver machined or molded parts in as little as a day.


Rapid Tooling: Faster, Better, and Less Expensive

Don’t think of rapid tooling purely for prototyping or short runs.  Additive tech is making it possible to produce steel tools that have decided benefits for injection molding and die casting.


A Deeply Holistic Approach

In its effort to streamline every step of the mold building process, this company has upgraded its deep-hole drilling capability with a new six-axis machine. A rotary table with magnetic workholding enhances this machine’s flexibility.


Complementary Technologies Make MQL More Accessible

An add-on system for minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) combines an external pump with repeatable control over nozzle position.
