Commonly used mechanical processing equipment for plastic molds are lathes, grinders, EDM, wire cutting machines, milling machines and CNC milling machines.

A lathe is a machine tool that mainly uses a turning tool to turn a rotating workpiece. Drills, reamers, reamers, taps, dies and knurling tools can also be used on the lathe for corresponding processing.

Most of the grinders use high-speed rotating grinding wheels for grinding processing, a few use other abrasive tools such as oilstone, belts and free abrasives for processing, such as honing machines, super-finishing machine tools, belt grinders, grinders and polishing Machine waiting.

EDM is widely used in the manufacture of various metal molds and mechanical equipment. EDM is a special processing method that uses the electro-corrosion effect generated by the pulse discharge between the two electrodes immersed in the working fluid to etch away conductive materials, also known as electrical discharge machining or electro-erosion machining.

Wire cutting machine
The wire cutting machine can cut materials, such as high strength, high toughness, high hardness, high brittleness, magnetic materials, and precision and small parts with complex shapes. Wire cutting technology and wire cutting machine tools are being widely used in all walks of life.

Milling machine
In addition to milling planes, grooves, gear teeth, threads and spline shafts, milling machines can also process more complex profiles. The efficiency is higher than that of planing machines. It is widely used in machinery manufacturing and repair departments.

CNC milling machine
CNC milling machine is an automatic processing equipment developed on the basis of general milling machines. The processing technology of the two is basically the same, and the structure is somewhat similar. CNC milling machines are divided into two categories: without tool magazine and with tool magazine. Among them, a CNC milling machine with a tool magazine is also called a machining center.
