GF Machining presents intelligent solutions to help mould and die manufacturers overcome their challenges

Rapid market developments and future-changing innovations challenge mould and die manufacturers’ ability to adapt to change. GF Machining Solutions provides these manufacturers with agility for the future with its new Mikron MILL P series of five-axis, simultaneous Milling machines.

The Mikron MILL P 500 U and the Mikron MILL P 800 U are optimized for intelligent productivity: Users can employ new tools, such as circular segment end mills to achieve up to 30 times faster 3D finishing or use trochoid Milling for roughing with increased process reliability. With the Mikron MILL P series, manufacturers can transform today’s challenges into applications for tomorrow.

These high-performance machines are designed to deliver the precision essential in mould and die production for industries such as automotive and home appliances. Beyond their ability to ensure ±2 µm precision in the X/Y plane, the Mikron MILL P 500 U/800 U deliver process stability to companies seeking agile productivity.

The mould making industry is under pressure today to become more efficient. On one hand, manufacturers are pushed to achieve higher mould making process productivity. On the other hand, they need to extract greater productivity from the mould itself with more cavities and shorter cycle times. These requirements challenge contemporary milling machines in terms of speed, stability, dynamics and production safety, in view for the need for consistent precision.
