Do you know the new words about tooling 4.0? Here we provide some introduction and example that manufacturers can know and follow the direction. Tooling 4.0 improves all about using technology to turn "clumsy" products into "smart" products.
Die casting, or pressure casting, is a metal casting process characterized by the use of mold cavities to apply high pressure to the molten metal.
As the foundation of modern industry, mold technology has been widely used in automobile, energy, machinery and other fields.
A mold is a production tool that can produce parts with certain shape and size requirements. In industrial production, various presses and special tools installed on the press are used to make metal or non-metallic materials into parts or products of the desired shape through pressure. Such special tools are collectively referred to as molds.
Many people do not understand the mold, what is the mold? A mold is a production tool that can produce parts with certain shape and size requirements. That is to say, the molds that people usually say, such as the casings of TV sets, telephones, plastic barrels and other commodities, are produced by injecting plastic heating software into the molds for cooling and molding. Any commodity is made with molds. It can be said that there is no production of products without molds.
Powder metallurgy mainly uses metal powder as raw material, and makes it into the shape we need through certain processing technology. This processing technology is very similar to the production of ceramics, so a series of powder metallurgy techniques can also be used for the preparation and production of ceramic materials. This article will introduce the relevant knowledge of powder metallurgy process in detail, and understand the advantages and disadvantages of powder metallurgy process.
Application of Fixture is a processing device used to fasten the workpiece quickly during processing, so that the machine tool, the tool, and the workpiece maintain the correct relative position. Tooling and fixtures are an indispensable part of machining. Driven by the development of machine tool technology in the direction of high speed, high efficiency, precision, compounding, intelligence, and environmental protection, fixture technology is moving towards high-precision, high-efficiency, modular, combination, universal, economic direction.
Quick Die Change (SMED), or 10-minute die change, is a set of useful techniques for dealing with multiple batches of small quantities and improving the rapid response capability of the production system and is a type of lean production method. The point is to convert internal jobs to external job conversions as much as possible.
Nowadays, products have many functions and high complexity, so the requirements for the quality and precision of molds are becoming more and more stringent. Only through a complete evaluation and testing in the early mold development process can we produce mold products that customers are satisfied with.
An injection mold is a tool for producing plastic products; it is also a tool for imparting complete structure and precise dimensions to plastic products. Because the production method is to inject the plastic melted at high temperature into the mold through high pressure and mechanical drive.
A pair of molds is composed of an upper mold and a lower mold. The male die is a concave die, also known as the upper die. The design of the male mold is very important, and the structural characteristics of the female mold itself change with the structure of the product and the processing method of the mold, which is flexible.
Blanking is a punching piece used as a blank on the plate. Punching is punching round holes on the workpiece, and it can be performed simultaneously with blanking.
Rapid molding technology is a fast, convenient, and practical mold manufacturing technology. It is especially suitable for the development and trial production of new products, process verification, and functional verification, as well as multi-variety and small batch production.
