Fully Committed to Zero Stock Machining
Milling critical mold surfaces to final size (or even a “tenth” undersize) literally leaves no margin for error. This takes absolute confidence in every aspect of the machining process, as well as absolute confidence that the results are worthwhile.

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.

Mold And Die Development Software
CGS North America has announced the merger in Japan, of Computer Engineering and Graphic Products (Japan). The new company started January 1, 2010 and is named C&G Systems Inc.

Software For High-Quality Applications
CGS North America's V5.0.3.6 CAD/CAM software provides high-quality tool paths suited for medical applications, high-polish lens tooling and other products requiring minimal hand work. 

CAM Software Is The Driving Force
Doug Noxell knew he had the right software for machining to zero, so he created a shop to add the rest of the capability.

The Hard-Milling Imperative
A job shop that specializes in hard milling shows why this technique is becoming indispensable for mold manufacturers. Hard milling allows mold components to be machined in the hardened state, thus skipping several expensive and time-consuming processes such as electrical discharge machining and hand polishing. Hard milling requires a certain type of machining center, tool holding system and programming software. The requirements for each of these elements are explained.

Who's Afraid To Cut To Zero?
Most U.S. mold shops still leave extra stock on the cores and cavities of the molds they machine. This practice is unnecessary and wasteful, say proponents of advanced machining technology.
