Waldrich Coburg’s Gemini high-rail gantry mill is designed to be used in the die and mold industries. The machine combines roughing at full power with finishing at high speeds while maintaining accuracy via wear-free hydrostatic guides. The gantry’s design allows for high acceleration and deceleration rates while machining and takes up less floor space than moving-table designs. The company describes its stiff, vibration-damping hydrostatic guidance system as “frictionless motion on oil.”

The machine provides up to 63 kW of power, 1,500 Nm of torque and dynamic machining at 20,000 rpm.

  • Hard Milling Isn’t Just High Speed Machining

    Milling complex forms in hardened tool steel involves more than just fast, light cuts, says this maker of medical-related injection molds. Here are some of the ingredients of an effective hard milling process.

  • Aluminum Molds In Three Weeks Or Less

    While aluminum molds are commonly used to create prototypes or to serve as stopgap bridge tooling, they are starting to receive greater attention for production work. This shop’s approach to creating aluminum molds in one day to three weeks is the same for each of these situations.

  • The 400° Difference

    Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
