Closed-Loop Manufacturing Die Casting Industry One practical example of CLM application is in the die casting industry in the production of slides used for demoulding of injection moulding components. The geometry of the slide's tip is crucial as it has to engage perfectly with its counterpart. If angles of up to 90° and lengths of only a few millimeters do not comply with the CAD model exactly, the slide has too much clearance inside its counterpart, which may lead to deformation when polymer is injected. In the case of deformation, tight form tolerances can no longer be maintained and the operator might have to change the slide.


When it comes to slide production the use of closed-loop manufacturing guarantees adherence to all tolerances within µm range. The extremely high machining accuracy enables error free application and a long service life. Benefits for the die casting industry include savings as a result of resource efficient production and shorter processing times due to the reduction of slide changes.
