Mold Processing

Plastic injection molds are typically constructed from hardened steel, aluminum, and/or copper alloy. Steel molds cost more, but are often preferred because of their high durability, and are designed to process well over a million parts during their lifetime.

Aluminum molds, on the other hand, can cost substantially less, but they typically are ill-suited for high-volume production or parts with narrow dimensional tolerances.

Copper alloy inserts are sometimes used in areas of the mold that require fast heat removal. This can reduce cycle time and improve the aesthetic quality of the part.

Shinzawa Drilling & Tapping Centers

Whether machining molds from steel, aluminum, or copper alloy, Shinzawa CNC machining centers are designed to help avoid many of the manufacturing difficulties and costs encountered in the mold machining phase. Keeping up with advances in technology, Shinzawa takes advantage of increased computer processing speeds to design CNC machining centers with ever enhancing CNC performance.

Shinzawa Drilling & Tapping Centers integrate the constructive features of high speed and maximum stability. The stable, low gravity machine base offers a solid foundation that features anti-deformation and anti-bending. Extra wide spans between linear motion guides provide exceptional stability and excellent absorption of vibrations while cutting. Our high-performance, Drilling & Tapping Centers provide the accuracy, rigidity, and thermal stability required for mold making, tool & die work, and other high-precision industrial processes.
