Primer on Miniature Die Casting Released

Special CWM Engineering Bulletin No. 76 provides OEMs with a condensed overview on how Miniature Zn & ZA-8 high-speed die casting process is the most cost-effective technology for small, complex structural parts.

This bulletin outlines the essential facts design engineers and purchasers should know about today’s specialized machines, the types of component parts that qualify, the part design guidelines the process requires be followed, and cost and lead-time considerations.

Sheffield Pioneer 8.10.6 CMM Unit

CWM’s Quality Assurance Dept. recently installed a Sheffield Pioneer 8.10.6 CMM machine, paving the way to acquiring the latest in sophisticated inspection software technology— PC-DMIS Cad++.

This advanced software integrates directly with 3D CAD modeling, allowing for inspection programming prior to the availability of the die cast product sample. Lead time is greatly reduced in providing a first article inspection report.

Complex parts can be measured very quickly with extreme accuracy and operator error is virtually eliminated.
