MOULD AND DIE DESIGN
Die/Mould Matching primarily refers to the matching of complex 3D forms stamping dies, forming dies, forging dies, injection moulds and blow moulds are all examples of tooling that might have complex shapes precisely mirroring or matching the inted shapes examples of milled parts that might have a simmilar complex 3D shape.High speed machining is an important topic for die/mould machining because of the need to take light milling passes productively in order to release both the required geomery and the required surface finish.Hard milling is another important issue. because many other mould and dies are milled in their hundred state, to prevent heat treating from affecting the geomery in addition to milling .EDM is another machining technology used to produce dies and moulds, for certain machined features and for certain hard workpieces the more efficient way to produce the 3D form may be to mill that shape into a ram or sinker EDM electrode,
Then use that electrode to machine the shape into the final die or mould tooling Hole making is another class of machining operations relative to die/mould machining.Dies and moulds are assemblies that often consists of plates and other components with various holes for cooling, venting, ejection and other necessary functions of the tooling producing injection mould for example can involve considerable drilling tapping and helical milling of various holes in order to produce the needed components.
