Injection mold makers everywhere will almost always be looking for ways to improve their operations. Any way you can shorten your delivery date and boost your quality must be seriously investigated.
Jig-grinding is practically always overlooked as 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 very accurately.
Why's the jig-grinder overlooked?
It can be overlooked partly because most toolmakers view it being an obsolete machine which reaches just best for round holes or time-consuming contours that should be done on a CNC milling machine. It's correct, it's not at all common, it can be primarily employed for round holes, and yes it does excel at contours such as you will spot inside a gauge for inspection.
This is the reason it's a ace in the hole for creating a plastic mold. Which is so overlooked, so efficient and thus accurate, you need to please take a re-assessment with this tool of the less than distant past. Some shops run their jig grinder the whole day, doing a number of tasks.
How can the jig grinder save me money and time?
The right types of some time consuming tasks it can prosper:
Blind hole floors. They are always a pain to accomplish; either you mill them extra deep before heat treat and grind to adjust to, or perhaps you leave stock for post heat treatment machining. In any event, it's a bother to have the depths directly in a simple manner. With the jig grinder, you depart them shallow before heat treat, and merely utilize a CBN wheel to quickly grind the depth perfectly. This really is faster and much easier than hard milling or guessing at the depths when grinding.
Bosses and other alike details. Why EDM them when you can undertake it in a fraction of times?
Adding relief to cores and core pins. You can make use of a Ded-Tru machine, or a spin fixture over a surface grinder, or hard turn your cores. Or do much of the job on the jig grinder.
Ejector and core pin holes. While almost all eliminate holes are WEDMd these days, it is possible to applications if it is smart to jig grind them.
Pockets, whether round, square or rectangular. It's unequalled a jig ground pocket. This is a great application for locators from the core and cavity blocks. By doing this you happen to be assured of perfect alignment.
