Visit One of North America's Top Moldmakers

October 9, 2015 3:26:10 PM

One of the top moldmakers in North America and MC Machinery Systems customer, Cavalier Tool, will open its Windsor, Ontario, Canada operation to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on November 17. The event is called the OPS Ingersoll Eagle Technology Day and also marks the company’s 40th anniversary.

Guests will have the chance to see the elaborate moldmaking operation used to make large tools in full automation. Machinery in action will include:

OPS Ingersoll Eagle 1200 PowerTec CNC EDM – Standard portal height and 30-position automatic tool changer

OPS Ingersoll High-Speed Eagle V9Automated 5-Axis CNC Mill – A 36,000 RPM spindle automated with the OPS Ingersoll Robot and multi-station system

OPS Ingersoll Eagle 1400+ PowerTec CNC EDM – With 300mm increased portal height and 49-position automatic tool changer.

Cavalier has achieved a lot with the equipment, including saving $126,000 in operating and consumable costs on the Eagle 1200 in its first year. They’ve also invested in an “RFID” chip system that’s improved automation workflow and streamlined their electrode manufacturing from their graphite mills to their EDM sinkers.

The company was also named MoldMaking Technology magazine’s 2015 Leadtime Leader.
