“Our differential is in the production process, especially in high complexity and large dimensional ones, since our components, along with offering high precision, provide greater rigidity in the guide system, and are interchangeable with the equipment in the market", emphasizes the commercial manager, Raphael Mariano Jr.

Another differential is a deep hole drilling machine (Gundrill), which allows the execution of bores from 6 to 32 mm in diameter and length of up to 2 meters, meeting cooling needs, lodging for heating elements, hydraulic lines and passage of tubing and wires.

In order to preserve the environment, all waste from the production process is properly stored and disposed of in appropriate locations. The filtering process is recycled, reducing energy and water consumption.

SKA shows 3D printing applications for mold makers

Have you ever imagined reducing the amount of steel used in a prototype by 72%? To show that this is possible, SKA brings this year to its booth at EuroMold BRASIL, 3D printing applications for mold tooling.

“In a practical case, it was proven to be possible to print a mold for injecting a fan blade. The process, which is usually made in steel or aluminum and takes 30 days or more, was accomplished in Digital ABS in a 3D printer in just 22 hours", reports the sales manager, Paulo Schmaedecke.

After completion, the mold in Digital ABS was used for injection molding in an Arburg 70 with acetal (POM) at 210ºC. The results are a 72% decrease in the amount of steel used or 43% in the case of aluminum. Molds in Digital ABS may be used for batches of up to 100 parts, depending on the injected material or also for try outs of traditional molds made of steel or aluminum.

SKA is the leader in providing CAD and CAM software with a complete line of products for engineering design and project solutions from design, simulation, and documentation up to prototyping with 3D printing. For process engineering, it has software to generate machining programs, cutting and bending of metal sheets and profiles.

For 25 years the company has been offering products that support industrial processes of small and large corporations, from product design to manufacturing and maintenance.

The company has over 120 employees in six regional offices. The product portfolio includes leader products in their segments, such as Stratasys, SolidWorks, Edgecam, VISI, Machining Strategist, Lantek and QC. It also offers training services, support, consulting, CAD and PDM implementation and integration with ERP systems.
