Injection mold makers everywhere will almost always be looking for ways to increase their operations. However you can shorten your delivery date and increase your quality should be seriously investigated.
Jig-grinding is nearly always overlooked being a meaningful machine tool for injection mold making. Yet, from my experience, it's a very valuable machine that gets the work done quickly and incredibly accurately.
Why is the jig-grinder overlooked?
It really is overlooked partly because most toolmakers visualize it as a possible out of date machine which reaches just beneficial to round holes or time-consuming contours that should be done on a CNC milling machine. It's correct, it isn't quite typical, it's primarily employed for round holes, plus it does excel at contours such as you might find within a gauge for inspection.
This is the reason this is a secret weapon for constructing a plastic mold. Since it is so overlooked, so efficient and so accurate, you ought to require a re-evaluation with this tool of the not too distant past. Some shops run their jig grinder the whole day, performing a number of tasks.
How can the jig grinder save me time and cash?
Some really good types of time consuming tasks it could do well:
Blind hole floors. These are always an irritation to accomplish; either you mill them extra deep before heat treat and grind to adjust to, or you leave stock for post heat treatment machining. Either way, it's a bother to get the depths directly in a simple manner. With the jig grinder, you allow them shallow before heat treat, and make use of a CBN wheel to rapidly grind the depth perfectly. This really is faster and easier than hard milling or guessing in the depths when grinding.
Bosses and other alike details. Why EDM them when it's possible to do it inside a fraction of that time period?
Adding relief to cores and core pins. You can either utilize a Ded-Tru machine, or even a spin fixture on a surface grinder, or hard turn your cores. Additionally, you can do much of the project over a jig grinder.
Ejector and core pin holes. While nearly all eliminate holes are WEDMd today, you can still find applications if this is sensible to jig grind them.
Pockets, whether round, square or rectangular. It really is unequalled a jig ground pocket. A great application for locators within the core and cavity blocks. By doing this you happen to be assured of perfect alignment.
