TerBeek成型 & 工具 Achieves Tight Tolerances, High Accuracy and Superior Surface Finishes with Mitsubishi 电火花s and Roku-Roku vmc
TerBeek成型 & 工具 designs and manufactures high-precision plastic injection molds using three Mitsubishi sinker 电火花s, one Mitsubishi wire 电火花 and two Roku-Roku high-speed vertical machining centers (VMCs).
A new 22,000-square-foot climate-controlled facility in Peachtree City, Ga. houses the company’s team of 20 employees.
A key customer base is medical companies requiring tight-tolerance molds, 约翰·特贝克说, a mechanical engineer who co-owns the company with his father Brian. The elder TerBeek founded the family-run business in 2005.
Mitsubishi Wire and Sinker 电火花s
The Mitsubishi sinker 电火花s (two EA8 Advance Sinker 电火花s; one EA8PS Advance Sinker 电火花) are used for burning inserts used in injection molding tools. TerBeek成型 & 工具 uses only TTK-4 graphite, a highly machinable material that is ideal for complex and difficult shapes.
电火花线切割(三菱MV1200R) is used to cut ejector/core pin holes in molding inserts and contours and tapers for stamping dies.
“Mitsubishi 电火花s help us achieve tight tolerances with their stable construction and control,约翰·特贝克说. “We have had very few control issues through the years and machine reliability has been superb. They allow us to pinpoint surface finish as well as electrode position throughout the machining process.”
Because Mitsubishi wire and sinker 电火花s have the same graphical user interface, switching between machines is easy, 他说.
“Operators that have been trained on sinker 电火花s are able to switch to wire 电火花 machines with very little additional training, which can be done on site or over the phone with 十大靠谱赌博平台 technicians,他说.
Roku-Roku High-Speed VMCs
TerBeek说 its two Roku-Roku high-speed VMCs are primarily used for graphite and copper electrode machining, finish hard milling and fine-detail engraving.
“The kinematics of the Roku-Roku vmc allow us to run faster feed rates and not sacrifice surface finish or accuracy,” TerBeek说. “The machines are efficient in terms of increased cutter life, reliable Fanuc control and overall machine stability. We can run longer intervals on downstream inspection on parts that the Roku-Rokus machined.”
十大靠谱赌博平台 service and support have been exceptional the “very few times” assistance has been needed, TerBeek说.
“I can only recall one time where a 14-year-old machine was down because of a failed axis drive,他说. “十大靠谱赌博平台 was able to diagnose the issue over the phone and had the replacement part here within two days.”
When the machines were moved from the old location to the new facility, 十大靠谱赌博平台 technicians went on site to set up and inspect the new machines, with production up and running in less than two weeks, 他说.
