The mold development workshop is an important department in the manufacturing industry, specializing in the design and manufacture of various types of molds. The following is an introduction to the mold development workshop and an overview of the mold development process:
The mold development workshop is a work area dedicated to mold design and manufacturing. In this workshop, a variety of advanced equipment and technology are used to manufacture high-quality molds according to customer needs and product design requirements.
The mold development process usually includes the following main steps:
1. Wire cutting processing: In the early stage of mold development, the use of wire cutting machine to cut metal materials. Wire cutting machines discharge high speed pulsed current on the workpiece to achieve precise cutting.
2. Electric discharge machining: Electric discharge machining is a processing method that removes materials from metal workpieces by discharging sparks. It is often used to make mold holes and grooves of complex shapes, as well as for precision surface machining.
3. CNC machining: CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining uses computer-controlled machine tools for machining operations. According to the design drawings and procedures, the CNC machine can perform various processing operations such as drilling, milling, and cutting to precisely carve and form the individual parts of the mold.
4. Grinding machine processing: Grinding machine processing is used for high-precision grinding and surface treatment of the mold. The grinding machine uses the abrasive particles to grind on the surface of the workpiece to achieve the required size, finish and precision.
5. Lathe processing: Lathe processing is to rotate the workpiece and use the cutting tool to cut it. Lathe machining is often used to manufacture shaft components and external circular structures of molds.
6. Milling machine processing: Milling machine machining by rotating the tool, cutting on the workpiece to form complex internal and external shapes. Milling machines process parts such as surfaces, bosses and grooves that are often used to make molds.
7. Polishing: In the final stage of mold manufacturing, polishing process is carried out to improve the finish and texture of the mold surface. The polishing operation can be done by hand or using a polisher to get the desired smooth and mirror-like effect.
8. Mold assembly: After all parts are processed and processed, mold assembly is carried out. This includes assembling the individual parts together and making adjustments and checks to ensure the proper function and accuracy of the mold.
Mold development workshop through the above process, as well as strict quality control and inspection, to produce high quality, precision mold. These molds play a key role in the manufacturing industry and are used to produce a variety of products, such as plastic products, metal parts, etc. The quality and accuracy of the mold directly affect the quality and performance of the final product, so the mold development workshop plays an important role in modern manufacturing.
