China make EuroMold

DEMAT GmbH and Wohlers Associates Inc. will be joining forces to offer a one-day conference entitled “Worldwide Advances in Rapid and High-Performance Tooling” at the upcoming EuroMold 2002 trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany. The conference will focus on some of the most important methods, applications, and technologies for rapid tooling, and on tooling systems that offer superior performance.

“This year, 1,600 exhibitors from 45 countries are expected to participate in EuroMold,” says Diana Schnabel, an executive at DEMAT, organizer of the trade fair. “In years past, rapid tooling has ranked as one of the top topics of interest among those who attended.” The show is expected to draw over 50,000 engineers, toolmakers, managers, and executives from around the world.

The tooling conference will feature updates on advanced methods of tooling presented by companies that offer them, such as direct metal deposition from The POM Group, direct metal laser sintering from EOS, electron beam melting from Arcam, laser-engineered net shaping from Optomec, M3 linear from Concept Laser GmbH, ProMetal from Extrude Hone, RSP tooling from RSP Tooling LLC, Sprayform from Ford, SLS tooling from 3D Systems, and ultrasonic consolidation from Solidica.

“In recent years, some methods of rapid and high-performance tooling have improved to the point where they now provide vital strategic benefits to organizations,” explains Dr. Eberhard Döring of DEMAT. “Some of these methods enable users to embed cooling channels that conform to the shape of mould or die cavities. Other methods reduce or eliminate a need for EDM. The conference will discuss software and hardware for high-speed cutting using CNC machining centres, and how this class of technology compares to the growing range of alternative solutions.”

Ten speakers from around the world will participate in the conference, which will be held on Friday, December 6. The Global Alliance of Rapid Prototyping Associations (GARPA), a non-profit organization, has endorsed the event and will be participating in it. In 1998, GARPA was co-founded by industry consultant Terry Wohlers, president of Wohlers Associates Inc., who will be chairing the conference.

Visit MTA 2003 in Singapore next May 20-24 and you’ll have the opportunity to see four major shows running concurrently at the Singapore Expo Centre: Metal Asia 2003, a metalworking show; Metrology MTA 2003, a quality trade fair; Mould Tech Asia 2003, the 6th Asian international exhibition of machinery and accessories for the mould and die industry; and Manufacturing Asia 2003, the 15th Asian international showcase for factory equipment and supplies.

All of this takes place in conjunction with Outsource & Subcon 2003, an Asian contract manufacturing and subcontracting exhibition for global manufacturing procurement and outsourcing.

The projected exhibition area will cover 18,000 m² and accommodate 1,200 companies, with about 80% from overseas, and host 12 group pavilions. More than 20,000 visitors are expected.

Numerous organizations are supporting MTA 2003, including the Federation of Asia Pacific Die & Mould Associations (FADMA).

Fidia Appoints 600 Centre as
Representative in United Kingdom

Fidia of Italy, manufacturer of three-, four- and five-axis birotary head milling centers for mold, die and resin applications, has appointed the 600 Centre organization of Shepshed as its representative in the United Kingdom.

According to 600 Centre director Tim Hately, “Fidia’s range of machines is regarded internationally as [having] leading-edge technology for five-axis machining, with the added advantage of the Fidia control system and application software.”

The Fidia range consists of the D, K, HS and Y2K Series. The K 211/411 five-axis milling center is the latest addition with a 24,000 rev/min, 27 kW bi-rotary head and up to 84-tool capacity for large, complex injection molds. Other machines have up spindle drives offering up to 60,000 rev/min, and are capable of digitizing, graphite machining, hard metal machining of forging dies and molds as well as model machining.

Injection Molding Machine

Injection Molding Machine

Do you have any idea about the auto loader manufacturer? Basically it is used in the injection mould machine. To know more you have to search on the topic over the internet. Moulding machines spare energy and produces less sound as well as giving high execution. Auto Loader makers are utilized for stacking of crude materials or plastic sap into the machines. Auto loaders make the work more straightforward via immediately stacking the segments into the mould machine.

How the auto loader fits into the moulding machine

Auto Loader is the most fundamental thing that is used in plastic shaping machine. There are numerous Auto Loader producers for this supporting part of the injection mould machine. It has an enormous market demand because of the differing purposes. It might be utilized for stacking of crude materials or plastic gum into the machines. So it can work resourcefully on Read more
