Mastercam for Injection Mold Making

By |2022-05-23T08:31:22-04:00May 23rd, 2022|Categories: Mastercam|0 Comments

What is injection molding? Injection mold making is the go-to method for mass-producing plastic parts. The process is streamlined to maximize cost savings and part production. First, pelletized material is placed into a heated container to turn molten. It is mixed with a helical screw to maintain a smooth consistency and to speed up the heating process. The liquid is then pumped – or injected – with a plunger into a premade mold, which shapes [...]

A Guide to CAD/CAM Post Processing

By |2022-05-02T08:19:09-04:00May 2nd, 2022|Categories: Mastercam|0 Comments

CAD/CAM software is a combination of computer-aided design (CAD) software and computer-aided machining (CAM) software. CAD creates the design geometry and then CAM takes the design intent and produces optimum toolpath strategies to subsequently drive the CNC Machine. Most CAD/CAM systems are machine-independent, which means the user is required to pass the intermediate format (Cutter Location, CL Data) through a post processor to produce the correct G-Code for the selected machine. A CNC post processor is a [...]
