High-Performance Inspection Probe

High-Performance Inspection Probe
Introduced for Machining Centers

Renishaw Inc.‘s new OMP40 probe is a significant development that brings the benefits of automated part set-up and in-cycle gaging to small machining centers and high-speed cutting machines. With the OMP40, you can realize the benefits of probing, including reductions in set-up times of up to 90%, reduced scrap due to setting errors, reduced fixture costs, and improved process control.

The OMP40 uses miniaturized electronics that allow an ultra-compact probe that is 40 mm (diameter) by 50 mm (length), while still delivering a metrology performance of 1µm repeatability.

The OMP40 operates with Renishaw’s optical signal transmission system and is a further development in the company’s extensive range of products for machining centers. It was designed to meet a demand for probing on small machining centers and an expanding family of high-speed machines fitted with small HSK and small-taper spindles.

The OMP40 features a 360° optical transmission system with a range of up to 3 m, allowing probe operation in any spindle orientation. The result is simplified system installation and set-up on small machine tools, making the OMP40 suitable for retrofitting to machines without probing.

Mold Manufacturer China

HYX Mould as a a profession mold manufacturer China company was keeping on researching and developing on plastic mold tooling during the past 11 years mould making. One R&D team with 11 people who are professional in various mould structures and have more than 10 years’ mould design and manufacturing experiences.

  • Mould researching:

During the past 11 years, HYX mould successfully did the researching of below mentioned mould making points.
How to make the hot runner housing on the mould accurate?
How to quick avoid the deforming of the mould plate after rough milling?
How to make the high speed thin-wall mould?
How to make gas aided PC injection molding mould?
How to make in mould labeling by normal plastic label?
How to inspect the different plastic parts? By working out many different types of plastic parts’ standard inspection data.

  • Mould Developing:

HYX Mould have gained the fruitful achievements of mould service and tooling ranges’ developing:

  • PVC FITTING DIA.32mm collapsible core system mould

 Succeed in providing collapsible core mould (the minimum diameter of this industry) with a fine solution and prolonging the mould’s working life. Offer customers a great scientific support in producing collapsible core pipe fitting mould.

Bi-injection mould meets the new requirements of the plastic industry. Its product ranges from car lamp, commodities, children toy and airline tableware, etc. In order to meet customers’ different needs, HYX has specially developed double color mould with different structures, including double color mould with rotary mould structure and hot runner double color injection mould.

  • 120 Cavity PET Preform Mould

For realizing multi cavity and high efficiency, HYX Packaging Mould Company has specially developed 120 cavity PET preform mould and hot runner valve gate system. Through robot cooling system out of mould, it increases the PET preform mould’s production rate. Equipped with Dakumar PET preform special machinery, it realizes an efficient production line integrated with mould, injection machine and robot, and fulfills the special needs of many beverage packaging companies.

  • 48 Cavity Medical PET testing Tube Mould
  • 4 Cavity Crate Mould

With breakthrough thinking and continuous development, crate mould has become one of the distinctive moulds in HYX. In 2007, HYX has firstly developed 2 cavity crate mould in the industry, and obtained customers’ satisfactory feedback. In two years, HYX mould has continuously exported over 20 sets of 2 cavity high speed mould with copper-beryllium. At the end of 2008, HYX Holdings Group’s R&D department has made a new breakthrough. 4 cavity crate mould with copper-beryllium has been carried out. Thus, one set of crate mould can produce 11,520 products per day, and the output has increased 8 times comparing to the common 1 cavity mould.

  • IML System

IML solution is carried out by branches of HYX Holdings Group. With the coordination of IML Mould, High Speed Injection Moulding Machine, Valve Gate Hot Runner System and High Speed IML Robot, the fastest production rate comes to 4.5 seconds per shot for 1 L ice cream bucket, and can produce barrel-shaped thin wall product with 16 cavities. This technologyl has achieved the Nr.1 in China, and taken the leading place in the world.
During these years R&D, as the mould maker, we found that researching can make a mould manufacturer optimize the mould structure to improve the mould quality. As because there is no mould design is the best, we only can make it better.
