Latest trends in Die & Mould Manufacturing - IMTMA/MF001

Programme Background

Changing customer expectations and rapid model changes requires a fast turn around in the manufacture of Dies & Moulds. Presently, production demands require the ability to react to frequent product changes, shorter production runs, lower inventory levels and higher productivity.

  To meet these challenges a host of new technologies have evolved over the years. Apart from the conventional technologies like Die sinking & Wire EDMs the new generation manufacturing extensively uses hard machining and complex profiling on multi axis machining centres to completely finish the die and mould with little need for manual finishing and correction. Supporting these machining methods are new developments in design analysis, inspection techniques and complex programming systems.

Focus Areas
  • Relation between “First Time Right Mould Design” and Reduction in  mold manufacturing Lead time
  • Advanced Materials for Die and Moulds
  • Failure modes of moulds / dies- causes and remedies
  • PDC Die design and maintenance
  • Using simulation and analysis for optimising mould design
  • Impact of surface coating on mould / die performance
  • High speed machining of Dies & Moulds
  • Visit to modern tool room *

* Note: Factory visit of participants will be subject to the approval of the hosting industry.
