Glass Bowl and Dish Plate Molds Manufacturing Using CNC Milling Machine

Oleh : adminstp | | Source : -

In mid August 2021, PUI SKO ITS, as a continuation of the previous order, received another order to make 18 6,5 inch TPH glass bowls mold, again 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 again, which is the normal material used for manufacturing molds. One mold job takes up to 18 hours to complete. This order took longer time to work on compared to the previous product. This was due to the thickness of material, the complexity of the design, and the hardness of Stavax material, which can potentially damage the toolset if not done with the correct methods.

In addition to the order, PUI SKO ITS also received another order from the same company to work on a dish plate molds 10 inch in diameter. These orders and collaborative relationship are expected to continue into the future. To expand its CNC manufacturing workloads, PUI SKO ITS also owns 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 in custom sizes, small parts such as custom engine mountings, custom bearing housings, and many others.
