FDM Thermoform Tooling: What It Is and Why It Works

Thermoforming is a conventional plastics forming process where heat is used to bring a sheet of plastic to its sagging point, or when it becomes pliable. The heat source is removed and the plastic sheet is positioned onto a mold. A vacuum is then drawn through the mold and the sheet conforms to the surface of that mold.

Makino D200Z VMC Enhances High-Speed 5-Axis Machining for Die and Mold Tooling and Medical Part Processing

The increasing complexity of modern tool, die, mold and medical part designs call for a new level of 5-axis machine performance. The Makino D200Z 5-axis vertical machining center answers these challenges by combining the quickness of machine movements and accuracies with the latest software developments for high-precision, high-speed motion control. From roughing to high-speed finishing of multifaceted, contoured 3-D geometries, the D200Z boosts productivity with the most competitive processing capabilities for complex dies and molds typically found in the automotive, injection molding, packaging, medical and optical markets.

3D Scanning and Printing of supercar Arrinera Hussarya

The project of the first Polish supercar, Arrinera Hussarya, from the very beginning has been arousing strong emotions and hopes that the Polish automotive industry will come back to its past glory. The production of functioning prototypes that at the same time has to achieve the level of a sports car requires incredible precision and durability.

Industrie 4.0 laser technology by Kuka

The technology company KUKA will be exhibiting the latest applications for the laser industry at the Laser World of Photonics in Munich (hall A2 booth 324) from 26 to 29 June: from a laser show application and components such as optics for laser welding through to higher-level system monitoring, the engineering company will display its expertise – also covering the field of Industrie 4.0.

XXL 3D printing using KUKA technology

This 3D printing process is also referred to as additive manufacturing. The process makes use of a digital template to create a solid, three-dimensional object. 3D printing processes are now being used in a wide range of industries. KUKA Industries has taken on the role of leading technology company in a consortium of project partners aiming to develop 3D printing capabilities for the automotive and aerospace industries. The development partner, which specializes in joining technology, has been officially involved in the generative manufacture of high-performance lightweight components since February.

VLC 200 GT from EMAG for the machining of automotive gears

The production of a large volume of parts with extremely high quality has been a key feature in the production of automotive transmissions for decades. Developments in both the marketplace and technology, however, are continuing to change production at a very fast pace. For example, the number of gears needed for the production of our cars has been rising. This increase in quantity is pushing the production volume of gears even higher. At the same time, the competition from new market participants in Asia is intensifying.

ALDEGHI relies on GF Machining Solutions’ state-of-the-art taper-cutting and thermostabilization technology

Situated in the small town of Cisano Bergamasco in Italy’s Bergamo province, ALDEGHI S.r.l (a division of M.S.Ambrogio Group) is surrounded by history, from the Colleoni Chapel—a Renaissance jewel in Bergamo’s crown—to the majestic Piazza Vecchia, the heart of the upper city. Founded by Aldeghi’s father, Pietro Aldeghi, in 1983 in roughly 200-square-meter workshop, today’s ALDEGHI S.r.l. encompasses 2,000 square meters, including 1,600 square meters of covered and thermostabilized with air conditioning and is bound full speed for the future.
