Fred Puzon offers alternative machining approaches to the mold and die industry in Moldmaking Technology

Our National Sales Manager, Fred Puzon spoke about alternative machining approaches to series and batch manufacturing operations for the mold and die industry in November’s issue of Moldmaking Technology.

Puzon shows his understanding of the situation most shops face today and provides his insights and solutions with employing a five-axis machining system.

“In the past, moldmaking revolved around the individual skills of master moldmakers, but today that pool of craftsmen has grown ever smaller, and fewer or no replacements are entering the market. Shops end up having highly skilled tradesmen operating an EDM for 10 hours a day instead of running unattended 24 hours a day, says Puzon, “An alternative approach to series and batch manufacturing is to marry the use of modern machining technologies and automation, such as with five-axis CNC machining. This in itself is an automated process that improves process efficiency, as it permits a mold component and/or electrode to be machined in one workholding device that is specifically designed for five-axis machines.”
