Several types of cutting tool inserts and holders were selected, along with speeds and feeds, to provide a tooling
life of 10-60 min.
Solid parametric modeling design technologies, high-speed machining, rapid tooling
development, and lean manufacturing are becoming standard practice in the industry.
Blow molds, injection blow molds, stretch blow molds, and associated tooling
for medical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, personal-care, food, beverage, automotive, household and industrial chemical containers.
There now exists a host of competent LF tooling
pattern shops that can take the 3-D CAD model and convert it directly to CNC machine tools to cut the LF tools.
Product engineering established the fact that at least half of the total volume of scrap was due to dimensional inconsistencies already present in the pattern before the sand filling and pouring operations, the kind of flaws normally caused by out-of-dimension tooling
or poor molding and the gluing methods.
Thorough cleaning should come only after the cause of the defect has been found or the tooling
has been ruled out as a probable cause.
