Mold / Tool

DICASOL manufactures its casting tools to the highest standards and with the support of latest CAM applications . This will create the mold already the basis for a flexible and powerful production. The result is to increase our competitiveness and our customers.


Milling is a most indispensable step in the Mould . When milling standard parts such as mounting plates or mold frame are processed . Also the mold cavity , the heart of a casting tool is pre-processed mostly by milling in mold . In some cases, routing is already sufficient , and requires no further machining. When dealing with complex structures mainly in mold -art 5 -axis milling machines are used. We can produce almost any shape and surface . Equipped with multiple tool attachments , the 5 -axis milling machines working almost around the clock by the tool steels. As a result, we achieve an extremely high machine utilization , which has a positive effect on the profitability of our tool .
In mold often rotationally symmetrical components are machined and fitted. These include , for example, or the ejector guide sleeves for casting tools . To edit them , we put in mold -art lathes. With the lathe usually bring in diameter on the right level . Or we use these to provide the component with contours , such as phase or grooves. Equipped with many features, our lathes but are equally elaborate steps , such as cutting of threads that perform highly efficient and reliable. Tool equipped with various attachments , the lathe often work in our mold for hours without interruption . The high machine utilization efficiency reflects the general thinking of DICASOL .
Surface grinding
Surface grinding is a specialized form of grinding and is often used in mold . When surface grinding , the workpiece is held magnetically or mechanically on a grinding table . There is the grinding wheel , the grinding table is movable in three axes of the grinding table surface grinding machine. When surface grinding , the grinding table then slides under and carries the grinding wheel at each change of direction from material again . By flat grinding an extremely high accuracy and surface quality , and perfect parallelism is achieved. It therefore makes sense for mold in many cases as the best method of treatment . Among other things, it is ideal for planning areas such as the sealing surfaces of the mold parting line.

surface treatment

Polishing the cavity of a casting tool is used to mold makers to optimize the surface finish. According to the specifications from the clients of mold maker treats the surfaces of the cavity. When polishing, different patterns can arise . The most common , however, is the high gloss polishing. By polishing the surfaces of the mold is determined , the surface of the finished cast part , which is formed in this way during the casting .
The hardening in the mold takes a central position . The hardening process of die casting tool or its cavities is enormously complex and expensive. But he is of the utmost importance for the life of the die casting tool. When hardening of tool steel is heated strongly . Then it is usually quenched in a liquid. Thus the particles to the structure of the material can no longer return to their original position. Due to the changing structure of an increased hardness is achieved. But as a side effect of causing tension in the structure. The tool is therefore not only hardened steel . To resolve tensions in the structure of the tool steel again , the farmer has the form of stress-relieving tool steel . Here, the mold maker heats the die-cast tool steel as specified by the manufacturer again to a specific temperature . The optimum hardness is achieved when the tool steel is not brittle , but still get a sufficient hardness . As a result, we increased the resistance to the ever flowing hot molten metal.
After all parts of the casting mold is completed , the items to be assembled into a mold in the mold . When assembling (English Assembly) takes the form of the Bauer specially designed components and other standard parts , such as screws and springs and merges them. After the entire cast mold is assembled, it checks the form -builder for its functionality . The fit of the individual components are exactly like the smooth running of the guide tubes and many more things checked and measured it .
Spotting is defined as a process in which the two halves of the die casting tool are provided with marking ink and looking forward to a spotting press . The spotting press is then moved together with absolute parallelism and enormously high pressure. This provides the mold maker , at which point the mold halves meet . The spotting helps the mold makers to guarantee a complete closure of the casting tool and reduce tolerances to a minimum. It's kind of the finishing touches in mold and completes the machining of the casting mold. Spotting was done in the past and of poor farmers form part today , with the help of a Kranens . This parallelism and pressure are not guaranteed. Owning a Tuschiermaschine therefore testifies to the quality consciousness of the mold maker . We check into our mold 100 % of our die casting tools with a Spotting before they are shipped to the customer .
