CNC ALUMINUM PRESSURE FORM MOLD – AIRCRAFT PARTS

This project is a very complex Pressure Form mold and Steel Pressure box with a REN plug assist. The mold and Plug are all CNC machined. The mold has several moving features made from aluminum and brass. They are mounted to air cylinders to allow them to move in the wall or up and back on draft. This will allow the part to come out of the mold and not get scratched. The air cylinders are piped into a manifold
