Among the Secret Weapons In Injection Mold Making

Injection mold makers everywhere will always be researching ways to improve their operations. However it is possible to shorten your delivery date and enhance your quality needs to be seriously investigated.

Jig-grinding is almost always overlooked like a meaningful machine tool for injection mold making. Yet, from my experience, this is a very valuable machine which gets the task done quickly and extremely accurately.

Why's the jig-grinder overlooked?

It's overlooked partly since most toolmakers visualize it being an obsolete machine measuring only good for round holes or time-consuming contours that needs to be done on the CNC milling machine. It's correct, it's not common, it is primarily used for round holes, and it does excel at contours such as you will discover in the gauge for inspection.

For this reason it is just a ace in the hole for developing a plastic mold. Because it's so overlooked, so efficient and thus accurate, you should please take a re-assessment only at that tool from the not so distant past. Some shops run their jig grinder all day long, performing a variety of tasks.

How can the jig grinder save me money and time?

Some really good instances of enough time consuming tasks it might excel:

    Blind hole floors. They are always a pain to accomplish; either you mill them extra deep before heat treat and grind to match, or perhaps you leave stock for post heat treatment machining. Either way, it is just a bother to get the depths in a prompt manner. With all the jig grinder, you exit them shallow before heat treat, and utilize a CBN wheel to rapidly grind the depth perfectly. That is considerably quicker and simpler than hard milling or guessing with the depths when grinding.
    Bosses as well as other details. Why EDM them when you're able to undertake it inside a fraction of the time?
    Adding relief to cores and core pins. You may either work with a Ded-Tru machine, or perhaps a spin fixture with a surface grinder, or hard turn your cores. Or do most of the project over a jig grinder.
    Ejector and core pin holes. While nearly all knock out holes are WEDMd these days, there are still applications if it is sensible to jig grind them.
    Pockets, whether round, square or rectangular. It's unequalled a jig ground pocket. This is a great application for locators in the core and cavity blocks. This way you might be assured of perfect alignment.
