Mold Machining And Beyond

Adopting high speed machining entailed some surprises. One of the surprises was an unforeseen opportunity for new work.

Automation's Extended Reach

The experience of a Windsor mold shop offers an object lesson in machine shop automation. In an interconnected process, automating one aspect of the process offered benefits beyond what the initial planning had led the shop to expect.

High Speed Machining, Italian Style

One of the highlights of BI-MU, Italy's recent biennial machine tool show, was the number of innovative machine tools (and related technology) focusing on high speed machining.

Increasing Torque For A High Speed Spindle

Torque, not power, is the most important characteristic for determining the cutting performance of a spindle. Increasing spindle torque for a high speed machining center ultimately affects not only the choice of spindle but also the design of the ma...

Automating The Mold Shop

This shop produces dies and molds around the clock 7 days a week, yet most of the time no one is there.

High Speed Machining Of Dies And Molds (Revisited)

A new machine may not be needed— just changes in the process.

When Faster Is Better

A German mold maker expands operations from Europe to America on the wings of high speed machining.

High Speed And Torque: One Spindle Drive

Most metalcutting operations divide into one of two processing camps. First is the need to remove large volumes of material using high depth of cut and relatively slower feeds and speeds. On the other end of the spectrum is high speed machining, whi...

Better HSM For Big Parts

'High speed machining' is accepted and commonplace in many shops. HSM is so widely used, in fact, that its acceptance is beginning to affect the design of machine tools.

High Speed In Simultaneous Five-Axis Machining

In mold and die work, simultaneous five-axis machining is a proven technology, as is high speed machining (HSM). High speed simultaneous five-axis machining, however, is still a pioneering development.
