High Speed CNC Machining and EDM Machining Services
We take pride in our complete CNC machining and EDM machining processes to achieve superior surface finishes, and minimize inaccuracies created by hand work and the need for polishing. Highly trained machinists cut part data into steel by using a combination of the best available CNC machines, tooling, computer software, hardware and our proven machining techniques.
Many variables are taken into account and adjusted during the high speed machining process to improve and refine it daily. Complex molds such as wrap-around lenses, reflectors and housings can be a huge challenge for even the most experienced tool shops. Retractors, slides, lifters and inserts make today’s machining more complex than ever before. We can state with confidence that Platinum Tool is at the leading edge of technology capable of building these types of molds.
Three Dimensional CNC Machining:
- State-of-the-art, high speed 3 Axis and 5 Axis machines, all thermally controlled, each connected to it’s own high-end computer and networked to a central server for simultaneous CAM programming and machining
- Latest version of (Delcam) PowerMill , Lemoine and Cimitron (CAM) software
- Balanced “shrink fit” tool holders and high performance, high feed, coated end mills
EDM (Electric Discharge Machine:
- High speed, 4 axis EDM machines with orbiting capabilities for burning difficult areas to cut
- All electrodes are CNC machined using solid models and a high speed CNC machining centre
- Hirschman tooling – for fast and accurate transfer of electrode from CNC to EDM
- Tool changer with multiple electrodes used to extend the unmanned process for greater efficiency
Gun Drill / Boring Mill
- Platinum has invested in 5 Axis gun drilling and boring equipment allowing for fast and repeatable set up of the most complex compound set ups
CNC Plate Machining:
- Utilize solid models directly from design with dedicated CNC machines specifically for plates
- High-pressure coolant pumps support carbide “coolant through the tool” drilling system
- CAM programming done at the machine
- New tooling is tested regularly to ensure cutting edge performance
- Platinum has invested in PCS palletization tooling and software on all of the CNC equipment
- Including EDM , High speed 3 axis and 5 axis CNC , boring mill and 5 Axis gun drilling
- Allowing for reduced set up time and repeatable pick up as the tool components progress through the multiple CNC operations required and the various CNC machines needed to manufacture the most complex molds
