While attending Euromold in Germany early this month with a MoldMaking Technology editorial advisory board member by my side, we visited a company showing a machine ideal for some moldmaking automation.
The company is cybaman. And although they were displaying their machine technology as a dental milling solution, its six-axis equipped with a 50,000-rpm spindle seems ideal for the automated production of smaller inserts and electrodes.
What strikes you is the compact footprint of this machine and its automation capabilities compared to other automation solutions seen in mold shops today.
Perhaps a few of these machines can take the place of one larger automation cell?
