Roeders GmbH RCF150 Automation

Mould making: turbo-boosting full automation
Company SFS Group Austria, 04/2024

The globally active Swiss SFS Group supplies numerous indus­tries. For quality reasons, the company relies on its own mould­making shop for the production of injection moulds. Here, an integrated production line with milling and die-sinking EDM systems, parts cleaning and high-precision measu­rement was put into operation.

Oberflächenqualität - Surface quality

Surface quality:
gloss milling or polishing?
Workshop with companies MMC Hartmetall and Tebis Technische Infor­ma­ti­ons­systeme 04/2024

If the highest surface quality is required during milling, additional polishing is usually carried out after finishing. For typical tasks in mould making, the required time can range from a few hours to several days.

High precision measu­re­ments from Cimatron creates a stronger process
Company Alpla Group 07/2023

Quality measu­rement in the machine?
At the Alpla Group in Hard, Austria, the production process was signi­fi­cantly shortened by moving the quality measu­rement from a separate measuring room to the RXP950DSH from Röders. Immediately after milling, the workpieces are measured on the machine. The measu­rement diffe­rences compared to a coordinate measuring machine are so marginal that measuring on a coordinate measuring machine could be eliminated.

Röders GmbH RXP601DSH bei Fa. Circle

Accuracy and best optics high on the agenda
Efficiency combined with ultra-precise machining

Company Circle 03/2023

What has proven itself in tool and mould making is also suitable for everyday use in general metal cutting. Especially when,
in addition to good cutting perfor­mance, high precision and excellent optical quality of the parts are required.

Ultra-precise machining of brittle-hard materials

Company ShapeFab 03/2023

When processing lenses or other struc­tures made of glass or ceramics for appli­ca­tions such as laboratory and medical technology, measuring devices or laser technology, the “classic” three-pronged technology chain of grinding, lapping and polishing using three different systems dominates.

Röders GmbH RXU2000 Halle

Extra large 2000 x 1800 mm with 5 µm stitching gauge: High-precision 3‑axis milling and jig grinding

In many indus­trial sectors two twinned trends can be observed: customers ask for components with larger dimen­sions while at the same time requiring enhanced accuracy and surface quality. This not only affects tool and mould making, but also other high-tech appli­cation areas such as mecha­nical engineering, the electronics and metrology sector, or medical technology.

Tool making: efficient lubri­cation

optimizes tool life
Companies ZF and MHT 10/2022

The perfor­mance and efficiency of electric drives depend on the narrowest possible air gap between rotor and stator. The trend towards electrified power­trains thus furthers higher demands on the precision of the stamped parts required for this purpose.

Mold making: automated cell integrates multiple techno­logies

Company Festool 03/2022

In mold and die making, a profound transition is taking place. The previously favored juxta­po­sition of individual machines requiring high labor intensity is gradually replaced by complex, fully automated cells with integrated handling combining different types of equipment.

Company son‑x, 12/2021

For many optical components, such as lenses or mirrors, the requi­re­ments for the accuracy of the contours and the quality of the surfaces are up to a power of ten more stringent than for other micro production processes. Fractions of a micro­meter or surface roughness values in the single-digit nanometer range are required.

Roeders Flexible Zahnradfertigung - Flexible Gearwheel Production

Short-term production of a finished gearwheel — Flexible gearwheel production with
high-precision 5‑axis machining centres

The manufacture of gearwheels for machine building appli­ca­tions usually involves machines especially designed for the purpose. Important techniques include gear hobbing, gear shaping, gear-generating planning, profile milling and profile broaching. Generally, specia­lized tools whose geometry is precisely adapted to the work-piece are required.

Fully automatic HSC hard machining
Automation in mould making: milling machine manufac­turer as develo­pment partner
Company Hella, 04/2019

Although complex injection moulding tools are often one-off pieces, syste­matic standar­dization of processes and automation of the machining steps in conjunction with the use of suitable machines enables benefits to be achieved relating to both quality and costs.

Company Zahor­ansky Automation & Molds, 08/2017

It is hard to find product categories with aesthetic requi­re­ments that exceed those of the healthcare & beauty sector. The requi­re­ments that such products have to meet encompass all relevant aspects, such as design, colour, surface quality or look and feel. It goes without saying that items produced by plastic injection moulding need moulds that fulfil compa­ra­tively stringent quality requirements.
