7 aspects of improving process performance

In today’s manufacturing industry, the improvement of processing performance in mold processing equipment is crucial in meeting the growing demands. With the increasing size of mold forming parts and the high productivity requirements, molds now require multiple chambers, resulting in larger molds. The mold processing equipment needs to have features such as a large workbench, extended Y-axis and Z-axis travel, high load-bearing capacity, rigidity, and consistency. In this article, we will explore seven aspects of improving process performance, providing you with a better understanding of the developments and challenges in this critical field.

1.Increasing Size and Productivity Requirements

The increasingly large size of the mold forming parts and the high productivity of the parts require one mold and multiple chambers, resulting in the increasingly large mold, large tonnage of large mold can reach 100 tons, hundreds of mold cavities, thousands of mold cavities, the mold processing equipment large workbench, increase the Y-axis Z axis travel, large load bearing, high rigidity and high consistency.

2.Thermal Stability and Reliability of Mold Steel Material

The mold steel material of the mold processing has high hardness, which requires the mold processing equipment to have thermal stability and high reliability.

3.Complex Cavity and Multifunctional Composite Mold

The complex cavity and multifunctional composite mold, with the complexity of component shape, must improve the level of mold design and manufacturing, a variety of grooves, a variety of material in a set of mold forming or assembly into multi-function composite mold, requires processing programming program, with deep hole cavity comprehensive cutting ability and high stability, improve the processing difficulty.

4.Advantages of High-Speed Milling

The refinement of the mold processing makes the compound and high efficiency of the processing equipment more attractive. High-speed milling has many advantages of processing high hard steel, smooth processing, small cutting force, small workpiece temperature rise and deformation, so that the die enterprises pay more and more attention to high-speed processing.

5.High-Level Dynamic Accuracy

The static performance (such as repeated positioning accuracy, linear feed speed, introduced by the machine tool production enterprise) cannot reflect the actual processing situation when processing the three-dimensional surface of the mold. The high-precision processing of the three-dimensional surface of the mold puts forward the requirements of high dynamic precision performance. The high speed and high precision can only be achieved with the high rigidity, thermal stability, high reliability and high quality control system of the machine tool.

6.Considerations for Green Product Technology

The combination of processing technology and green product technology will be taken into consideration when enterprises purchase equipment. The radiation and medium selection of electric processing machine tools will be the factors affecting safety and steel, and the electric fire steel milling technology will be developed in the field of mold processing in the future.

7.Application of Measurement Technologies

The composite application, high-speed measurement and reverse engineering of various measurement technologies have become the development direction of promoting the mold to participate in product development and design technology.
