Mould and Die – Machine a whole car!

As part of our ongoing series of videos with Lee Scott from Starrag, Paul Jones from MTDCNC finds out about the complexities of making mould & dies, and how Starrag’s machines overcome these issues.

Mould and dies can range from small parts to parts as large as a motor car. But making these comes with their own issues; because they are used as moulds / dies, any imperfections will be reflected in the end component. Therefore there can’t be any blends, mis-matches or blemishes.

Not only that, you need to consider the accuracy. How does a machine accommodate for thermal behaviour, mechanical behaviour and other complexities when making these parts.

Fortunately machines from the Heckert Compact and Droop + Rein range are able to provide a solution.
