More CNC machining videos of plastic injection mold making at Danke Mold.
It includes CNC milling and CNC turning. In the video, it’s CNC milling. Also the following comment is for CNC milling only.
CNC machining is a very common manufacturing process in different industries. It can be used in injection molding mold making, rapid prototype making, wood-furniture making, jewelry making and much more.
CNC machining can be sorted by its machining movement directions, including 3-axis CNC machining, 4-axis CNC machining, 5-axis CNC machining, and 6-axis CNC machining. The more axis the CNC machine has, the more complicated parts the machine can make. Anyway, more expensive the machine will be.
Most CNC machines can provide the accuracy of +/-0.05mm, while some accurate ones can provide +/-0.02mm and even much better. The machining accuracy, stability, surfacing finish are very important considerations for CNC machine.
In most of the plastic injection mold making, 3 axis CNC machines can be enough for the tool making. For the areas where CNC machining cannot reach, EDM sparking will be the following manufacturing process for them. By the way, the electrode of EDM sparking is also manufactured by CNC machining. That’s why CNC machining is so important for mold making.
We will share more CNC videos as well as injection molding making videos in Danke Mold website. Any tooling feasibilty or injection molding inquiries, email us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
