2) Longer life means less machine downtime for tooling
changes resulting in increased production and efficiency.
Services include CAD product design, mold engineering, model making, mold reconditioning and repair, major mold modifications, digitizing, and trim/deflash tooling
With the continuous flow established on the shop floor, Signicast looked to the tooling
department to help cut down lead-times.
Gary Metzgar, head of marketing and training of North American Products, says the manufacturing processes of the diamond itself have made diamond tooling
A shrink-fit tool holder and cutting tool assembly is nearly equivalent in rigidity to integral shank tooling
while allowing quick tool changes, simple regrinding of the cutting tool and superior machining results.
manufacturers have to look at all aspects that affect the performance of a cutting tool.
Tool wear review can capture the entire tool and provide an excellent picture of the tool's life cycle, and the facility has the ability to use it with reverse engineering of tooling
He says tandem tooling
can cut floor-space requirements by 60% and overall costs by 40%.
represents a sizable portion of the assets of a molding company.
Most engineering companies consider men, machines, and materials as critical resources in their production planning and control activities with little or no concern for tooling
covers a wide variety of items, and is generally referred to as whatever is required to manufacture the product, besides the men, machines, and materials.
The main requirement of the strategy is to determine those parts with: a similar tooling
requirement; requiring the same manufacturing work station type/group and: which can be manufactured in one tooling
management is one of the most essential aspects of an effective flexible manufacturing system (FMS).
