How does people make mold for tire tread? Can somebody here direct me to the site about this tire tread mold making? Or is there some threads about this here in cnc zone? I have an old horizontal MC Okuma millac 5H, can I make it in this machine or they need special machinery for it? Thanks. Aristo.
Use the two following links as a start. You need to research what type of tire presses they have (number of segments, movement, angle, etc).
Your interest probably starts around 3:50

Depends upon the customer and what machines they have.
Hope this helps some.
