What Can a Die Spotting Press Machine Do For You?
A die spotting press machine is essentially a two-piece workstation that can offer you the same capabilities of other more expensive models. The machines generally have a rotating wheel that allows you to place printed patterns on a plastic die. The pressed parts are then easily removed using a simple lever system. You can get your die spotting done by hand, or a press can provide an incredibly detailed and accurate result.
Die spotting is an extremely popular method for producing prototype parts. It takes much less time than with regular plastic injection molding (commonly known as “labor-intensive”) since there is no need to waste material on casting or forging. The die itself is still a round object that will still move within the mould. Instead of needing to remove the piece of metal, the die is simply raised, allowing it to place the shape where it needs to go. It’s much easier and faster than making a small cast, and far more cost-effective as well.
Die marking isn’t limited to fine details. Today’s presses also offer mark up capabilities, which allow you to create detail that would be difficult to achieve through traditional methods. At the same time, it can be difficult to do this without sacrificing detail or quality.
With many models, you can get amazing detail. Many presses feature a large cover plate that can detail parts such as gaskets, fusible links, and rubber-bands. You can make an entire mold with minimal effort and minimal extra cost. If you’re just interested in making a couple parts at a time, it can even be done at home.
What’s even better detail is the ability to make repairs. This is helpful if you accidentally cut a part in half during your die-spotting process. You can still make the shape of the part from your base, but you can also “undo” the cut, reshape it, and make a new part.
Number matching is another advanced feature that’s offered by some machines. With the number matches, it’s possible to place numbers in just the right places on a product. This can help you make copies of a product without cutting any holes in it.
Many die spotting presses are flexible enough to be used for designing products that don’t require precise dimension accuracy. They can also be used for creating various shapes with details, such as tabbed jars, handles, or other accessory products. No matter what type of item you’re making, these machines are designed for producing the highest quality part.
Some machines may include options such as a case to protect your work. Because these cases can often serve as your bench, they can sometimes keep you out of harm’s way while doing your die marking. With so many different options available, you’re sure to find a die spotter that’s perfect for your needs.
