Injection mold makers everywhere will always be searching for ways to increase their operations. In whatever way you are able to shorten your delivery date and improve your quality should be seriously investigated.
Jig-grinding is actually always overlooked being a meaningful machine tool for injection mold making. Yet, from my experience, this is a very valuable machine that gets the position done quickly and incredibly accurately.
How come the jig-grinder overlooked?
It's overlooked partly since the majority of toolmakers view it being an outdated machine measuring only good for round holes or time consuming contours that you should done on the CNC milling machine. It is true, it isn't quite typical, it can be primarily used for round holes, also it does do well at contours such as you might find within a gauge for inspection.
This is why it is just a ace in the hole for creating a plastic mold. Because it's so overlooked, so efficient and thus accurate, you should have a re-evaluation with this tool in the not distant past. Some shops run their jig grinder all day every day, doing a variety of tasks.
How can the jig grinder save me money and time?
Some really good types of the time consuming tasks it might flourish:
Blind hole floors. These are always a problem to accomplish; either you mill them extra deep before heat treat and grind to suit, or else you leave stock for post heat treatment machining. In any event, it is just a bother to get the depths right in a timely manner. Using the jig grinder, you depart them shallow before heat treat, and just use a CBN wheel to rapidly grind the depth perfectly. This can be faster and much easier than hard milling or guessing on the depths when grinding.
Bosses as well as other details. Why EDM them when you can get it done in a fraction of that time period?
Adding relief to cores and core pins. You can either utilize a Ded-Tru machine, or a spin fixture over a surface grinder, or hard turn your cores. Or you can do high of the work on a jig grinder.
Ejector and core pin holes. While almost all knock out holes are WEDMd currently, you may still find applications when it is practical to jig grind them.
Pockets, whether round, square or rectangular. It's irresistible a jig ground pocket. A great application for locators from the core and cavity blocks. In this way you're assured of perfect alignment.
