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.
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.
Glass, silica glass, ceramics…
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.
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.
Hard machining above 58 HRC
replaces die sinking EDM
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.
Milling, penetration EDM, measuring and washing
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.
Röders GmbH uses the ZEISS XENOS high-end measuring device for maximum accuracy in mechanical engineering
From Users For Users: Ahead of everyone else with uncompromising precision
Company Carl Zeiss Industrielle Messtechnik GmbH 12/2021
In Soltau, Lower Saxony, highly precise milling and grinding machines are produced in the mechanical engineering department at Röders GmbH. The tolerances here are sometimes so small that customers were arguing about measured values again and again.
Ultraprecision machining of metals and plastics
Lenses, mirrors, semiconductor technology, lasers, prototypes …
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.
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.
Milling machines for the high art of mould making What do precision milling centreshave to do with mascara applicators?
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.
Highly precise multi-purpose machine for the tool shopMachining center for heavy-duty service in milling and jig grinding
Company Feintool, 12/2015
Feintool is a specialist for fine stamping and forming of precision sheet metal parts for various industrial applications with a world-wide reputation. The top performances its customers require can only be achieved if the entire process chain from the press through to the tool, the consumables and the periphery is carefully designed and optimized from one source.
