Molding Sense

The best route to the finished part

10/10/2019 - 10/11/2019

This event will only be conducted in German with no simultaneous translation.

Do you ever wonder if you are consistently achieving the optimal milling result? Or if there is room for improvement?

There are many factors to consider even before getting started with NC programming. What quality does the finished part need? How much time do you have available? How do you use the machine and machining tools? Which tool systems are appropriate for which machining operation? Which milling strategies yield the best results? What cutting data is optimal? How can your manufacturing knowledge be maintained throughout the company so that employees can access it at any time? What role does the CAD/CAM software play in this? And last but not least: How do you combine these components and coordinate all tasks? 

Our industry experts will answer these questions and more for you in our specially customized mold manufacturing workshop on October 10 or 11. From 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., you can experience how relevant process factors can be harmonized using a specific part as an example. We will manufacture the part on the machine in a live demonstration. Please note that the program for both days is identical.

Discussion topics

We will contrast the advantages and disadvantages of how you can implement this in your daily work. We will also show how you can benefit from the latest developments in manufacturing and optimize your milling results.

Our practical example

Manufacturing this part out of high-alloy hot-working steel (1.2343ESU) – hardened to 52 HRC – involves a total of six different tool assemblies, including ball and circle-segment cutters for finishing. You can experience the machining operation live and direct questions to us at the machine. 

Brief profiles of participating companies

MMC Hitachi Tool is one of the leading Japanese precision tool manufacturers with its own development and production. MMC Hitachi Tool has focused on die and mold manufacturing for decades and offers a tool program that spans the entire process chain. More than 90 application technicians work as process optimizers close to the customer for implementation in Europe. You can rely on a knowledge base of more than 16,000 technical application reports and a high availability of more than 4,000 products. Increased time and cost restrictions in die and mold manufacturing require shorter process times and more efficient machining processes. This is one of the focal points for the company's "Production50" process optimization concept. Since spring 2017, all activities of MMC Hitachi Tool have been combined into a single brand: MOLDINO. This abbreviation for "MOLD + DIE + INNOVATION" underscores the company's focused market orientation in die and mold manufacturing. 

Pfleghar GmbH & Co. KG located in Baienfurt, Germany, has handled sales of the FCS zero-point clamping system in Germany/Austria/Switzerland since 2007. With a complete range of FCS products, Pfleghar can transform a conventional machine-operator-oriented manufacturer into an industrialized single-parts manufacturer that plans, controls and implements its processes from virtual space (CAD, CAM, AV.) Existing machine investments are to be upgraded with intelligent extensions such as loaders or storage, etc. The focus is on increasing process efficiency. With this goal, Pfleghar has been committed to providing a broad range of products for die and mold manufacturing since the company was founded in 1990. An FCS zero-point clamping device provides end-to-end, robust and precise clamping and reduces setup time. This is standardized clamping of workpieces in die and mold manufacturing. The FCS system provides for automation above a lot size of 1.
