Injection mold makers everywhere will always be searching for ways to grow their operations. In any manner you'll be able to shorten your delivery date and improve your quality must be seriously investigated.
Jig-grinding is almost always overlooked like a meaningful machine tool for injection mold making. Yet, from my experience, it's a very valuable machine which gets the job done quickly and intensely accurately.
Why is the jig-grinder overlooked?
It's overlooked partly since the majority toolmakers consider it being an outdated machine that's only good for round holes or time-consuming contours that ought to be done on the CNC milling machine. It's true, it's not very common, it is primarily employed for round holes, also it does do well at contours just like you will spot in a gauge for inspection.
For this reason this is a ace in the hole for building a plastic mold. Because it's so overlooked, so efficient and so accurate, you must require a re-assessment as of this tool in the not so distant past. Some shops run their jig grinder all day every day, carrying out a selection of tasks.
How do the jig grinder save me time and money?
Good quality types of the time consuming tasks it might excel:
Blind hole floors. They're always a pain to perform; either you mill them extra deep before heat treat and grind to adjust to, or else you leave stock for post heat treatment machining. No matter what, this is a bother to have the depths right in a timely manner. With the jig grinder, you exit them shallow before heat treat, and simply make use of a CBN wheel to very quickly grind the depth perfectly. This is faster and much easier than hard milling or guessing at the depths when grinding.
Bosses and similar details. Why EDM them when you can undertake it in the fraction of that time period?
Adding relief to cores and core pins. You can either work with a Ded-Tru machine, or perhaps a spin fixture on a surface grinder, or hard turn your cores. Or you can do high of the work over a jig grinder.
Ejector and core pin holes. While virtually all knock out holes are WEDMd currently, it is possible to applications if this is practical to jig grind them.
Pockets, whether round, square or rectangular. It really is hard to beat a jig ground pocket. A great application for locators within the core and cavity blocks. Using this method you are assured of perfect alignment.
