we got an injection mold machine at work and these are the new molds we got. does anyone know how this would be machined? i guess what im struggling to see is how in the second picture these ribs were cut. They have square sides so it could not have been an end mill square or round nose that did it. also, the outer diameter of the cavity changes as it goes lower and along the changing diameter the square edges of the ribs remain perpendicular to the edge. I was thinking if i were to make something like this (assuming the non gradual changing diameter on the bottom section) i would have cut my two mold pieces then put them together face to face and clamped them in a vise, then drilled my hole in the center of them with my point of the drill being on the parting line, then reamed, then ?used a keyway cutter to cut the ribs? anyone know a better way, besides a ball endmill and cnc?
