Challenges Facing the Precision CNC Machine Shop

The evolvement of computer numerically controlled (CNC) technology has had significant impact on machining and manufacturing processes. The first CNC machine shops sprouted up in the 1960s, although these computerized machines were primitive by today’s standards with little control options and no memory. By the 1980s, computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) was becoming more popular … Continue reading Challenges Facing the Precision CNC Machine Shop

Wall Thickness Affects Quality and Profitability in Injection Molding

Maintaining a consistent wall thickness is a vital consideration in injection molding, as wall thickness impacts many factors of the part, including quality and profitability. Molding parts with consistency in wall thickness, and maintaining those dimensions is important. When parts are molded with inconsistent wall thickness, the molded part is subject to warping, cracking and … Continue reading Wall Thickness Affects Quality and Profitability in Injection Molding
