LOW-LYING AREAS

Scanning a part's low-lying areas.

When Z-level roughing 3D parts, the flatter, low-lying areas end up with large scallops or cusps.  By scanning across the low-lying areas, thee scallops or cusps can be removed, and this will not interfere with the remaining tools yet to run.

DEEP 3D CAVITIES AND CORES WITH LONG TOOLING

A new approach to machining deep 3D cavities and cores.

By using a quality machine tool and programming system with next-generation tooling, cycle time was dramatically reduced, and the part was completed in 5 hours and 21 minutes - an 800 percent cycle-time improvement over the mold shop quotes that included traditional EDM methods.  By following the approach detailed here, shop owners can compete on a higher level and secure more business.
