Commonly used mechanical processing equipment for plastic mold processing includes lathes, grinders, EDM, wire cutting machines, milling machines and CNC milling machines.
lathe A lathe is a machine tool that mainly uses a turning tool to turn a rotating workpiece. Drills, reamers, reamers, taps, dies and knurling tools are also used on lathes.
Most grinding machines use high-speed rotating grinding wheels for grinding, and a few use other abrasive tools such as oil stones and abrasive belts and free abrasives for processing, such as constant grinding machines, superfinishing machine tools, abrasive belt grinders, grinding machines, polishing machines, etc.
EDM is widely used in the manufacture of various metal molds and mechanical equipment. EDM is a special processing method, also known as electrical discharge machining or electro-erosion machining, which corrodes conductive materials by using the electro-erosion effect generated when the bipolar pulse discharge is immersed in the working fluid.
Wire cutting machine The function of wire cutting is to cut materials, such as high strength, high toughness, high hardness, high brittleness, magnetic materials, and parts with small precision and complex shapes. Wire cutting technology and wire cutting machine tools have been widely used in various industries.
The milling machine can not only mill planes, grooves, gears, threads and spline shafts, but also process complex surfaces with higher efficiency than planers, and is widely used in machinery manufacturing and maintenance departments.
CNC milling machine
CNC milling machine is an automatic processing equipment based on general milling machine, the processing technology is basically the same, and the structure is similar. CNC milling machines are divided into two categories: without tool magazine and without tool magazine. Among them, CNC milling machines with tool magazines are also called machining centers.
