Fabrication d'outils, de moules et de matrices

Permettre des processus de fabrication rapides et fiables à travers la production précise d'outils, de moules et de matrices.

From Sampling to 100% Inspection

Through injection moulding processes, plastic moulded parts can be produced economically and in large quantities. Melted plastic is injected under high pressure into the mould cavities of a tool. By means of electrical heating, hot-runner systems keep the polymer melt flowing on its way to the cavities.

Automation, Innovation and High Precision Machining: a Mould-Maker Relies on WorkNC

A high-volume mould-maker for the French food processing industry says WorkNC, from Vero Software, is an “irreplaceable” asset to their production process. The software helped them to implement a completely automated workshop, freeing up time to take on new projects.

Edgecam’s Waveform “The Only Way To Successfully Cut For Certain Complex Aerospace Applications”

A cutting tool developer partners with Edgecam software to ensure its philosophy of taking customers’ machining challenges off their hands, is always successful.

WorkPLAN Controls 2,000 Projects for Metra

The WorkPLAN ERP solution from Vero Software ensures staff at a precision machining, tooling and mold company are fully aware of workshop costs, by monitoring around 2,000 separate projects annually.

Omni-Stamp create moulds for plastic materials

VISI's Vital Role In High Profile Research Projects for Omni-Stamp

An Italian plastic mould-maker uses a portfolio of VISI CAD/CAM software modules to ensure it stays at the forefront of product development and research.

Edgecam Waveform Plays Key Role in Two Product Launches For Fenn Tool

Founded by owner Peter Fenn in 1982, Essex-based Fenn Tool has developed into what is now one of the largest independent cutting tool distributors in the UK. 

Unceasing Dedication to Product Quality

Tianjin Motor Dies Co. Ltd., founded in 1995, celebrated its twentieth anniversary in April 2015. Currently, Tianjin Motor Dies has more than ten plants in China and has even set up manufacturing facilities in Germany. The company, one of China's largest motor die manufacturers, has now begun to impact the global dies market in earnest.

Bien plus qu’un bouchon: Technique de mesure tridimensionnelle dans la fabrication de moules

Le groupe Corvaglia est basé à Eschlikon, en Suisse orientale, et fabrique des produits manipulables en un tour de main. L’entreprise est en effet spécialisée dans la fabrication de bouchons et de fermetures économiques pour bouteilles en PVC. Parallèlement au moulage par injection de matières plastiques, la fabrication de moules joue un rôle majeur au sein du groupe. Pour éviter qu’elle ne se transforme en un goulot d’étranglement, Corvaglia fait appel à la technologie Hexagon Metrology: tous les préréglages sont effectués à l’aide d’une machine à mesurer tridimensionnelle associée au logiciel PC-DMIS. L’avantage de cette procédure: les machines à éroder fonctionnent en continu pendant que les employés équipent les pièces en dehors de l’atelier d’érodage.

Cannot Do Without It

Ballerstedt, the renowned plastic-injection moulding company, uses probes and Form Inspect software from m&h when constructing their moulds. Mould inserts can now be made to fit accurately and to be easily replaceable. This shortens downtimes and increases productivity.

Eliminating the See-Saw

Innovation and customer benfit, these are the maxims that have established mould maker Hofmann of Lichtenfels enviable reputation. At Hofmann, measuring workpieces while still clamped on the machine has been an everyday occurrence for over seven years. Using touch probes and software from m&h, Hofmann has improved quality and reliability of the production process while speeding up the manufacturing cycle at the same time.

Enormous Time Gains

Measuring contours on the machine tool not only ensures quality but also considerably shortens set-up times and speeds up manufacturing cycles. A mould making and jobbing company reports its experiences using m&h 3D Form Inspect software and proves that quality assurance also reduces manufacturing time.

Five-Axis Parts in Series

The mould production of Color Metal produces mould inserts in an automated facility with a large pallet storage on five-axis machining centres by Grob. For this purpose, the tools are calibrated by an m&h laser and checked for tool breakage.

High Accuracy combined with Flexible Applications

At Jochum, a mould manufacturer, tool length measurements and blade fracture checks are performed on a removable Tool Setter by m&h, even in unmanned shifts. The Tool Setter communicates with the control via the same infrared receiver as the probe.

Lets Do A Quick Calibration

The contract manufacturer SHW Bearbeitungstechnik GmbH has equipped its machining and turning/milling machines with radio-wave touch probes by m&h and regularly calibrates the machine tables with it. That provides accuracy, and the probes save set-up times and allow for an accelerated and secure production of mostly large and complex cast parts.

Measuring for Clear Vision

An Italian manufacturer of injection moulds provides for clear vision in production through measuring workpieces while still clamped on the machining centres. This is achieved by using German m&h touch probes and software on Japanese machine tools.

More Speed and More Accuracy With Laser Tool Setters

For years, model and mould construction has been measuring using probes and software by m&h. Now tools are also measured in the machine using m&h laser tool setters – with significant improvements in manufacturing.

Mould Complete with Measuring Protocol

Measuring workpieces on the machine has become standard practice at the Saxon milling service provider Hofmann & Engel. The possibility to log work directly on the machine has helped win several orders from mould making and single component manufacturers.
