Cutting Tool Edge Prep: The Invisible Advantage

Edge preparation involves removing material from a cutting tool in order to extend its life. That may sound counterintuitive, but a maker of glass molds says edge prep has dramatically reduced the amount it spends on tools.


Armed for Accuracy

Portable metrology arms provide many benefits, as do standard CMMs, but how do these devices differ from each other? This company relies on both and describes the applications for which these technologies are particularly well-suited.


Improvement Is Not Optional

No matter how busy this shop gets, it continues to pull teams of employees out of production so they can focus on solving problems to make incremental process changes. The advances add up. Today, this is a very different shop than it once was.


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.
