Production of an injection mold in 60HRC steel
Cavities which can only be finished via 5-axis control
Shape accuracy better than +/-4µm

Part of the Month January 2017

Technology: 5-axis precision milling, 5-axis shapes with maximum precision

Precision machining center:

Task:

  • Production of an injection mold in 60HRC steel
  • 5-axis shape accuracy better than +/-5µm

Challenge:

  • Deep cavities, which can only be finished via 5-axis control
  • At the same time, the required tolerances must be maintained despite the rotating and pivoting movement

Contour dimensions:

  • X/Y approx. 20mm
  • Z approx. 4mm

Result:

  • Shape accuracy on part better than +/-4µm
  • Outstanding surface quality
