Glass Bowl Molds Manufacturing Using CNC Milling Machine

Oleh : adminstp | | Source : -

In early June 2021, PT UDEO, which is a startup company from ITS, received an order to make 20 molds for glass bowls from PT MIKRONIKA MAKMUR Sidoarjo. This company produces a variety of die, mold and factory equipments to serve the needs of maintenance and replacement of factory machines.

This order is currently being done using a HAAS VF3 CNC Milling machine in the Molina Building belonging to PUI SKO ITS, which also has 4 axes milling capability, with the maximum workpiece size of 1 m x 0,5 m. For the order, the material of choice is Stavax Steel, which is the normal material used for manufacturing molds. One mold job takes up to 8 hours to complete. This relatively long time to work for a product was due to the hardness of Stavax material which can potentially damage the toolset if not done with the correct methods.

In addition to a CNC Milling machine, PUI SKO ITS also has a HAAS ST10 CNC Lathe Machine, which can turn workpieces up to a maximum diameter of 6 inches, and a maximum length of 30 cm. With these two CNC machines, the products that can be worked on become much more diverse. As an example, in addition to the mold work, the CNC machines at PUI SKO ITS have also been used to work on other products, such as custom spare parts for electric motors from PT BRAJA ELEKTRIK MOTOR, like Rotor, Stator, Casing, Fin, and other custom sized accessories that are not commonly sold in the market.
