The tool making facility manufactures moulds for die casting of plastics, elastomers, casting moulds for aluminium alloys, stamps, appliances and special cutting tools for the metal machining facility.
Approximately 45 per cent of the tool-making capacity is used in-plant orders, and about 55 per cent are for export. 13 engineers and 45 workers are engaged in the production, 55 pieces of machining and measuring equipment are used.
The tool production co-operates with other workshops of the plant for heat treatment of the parts (hardening, carburizing, saturation with C), while machining and finishing large-sized parts, for precision measurements, galvanic operations.
Planar-TM Plant has good co-operation ties with neighboring enterprises, where it is possible to carry out chemical-process operations (nitriding/saturation with N, cyaniding/saturation with C + N), coordinate milling operations on fields exceeding 1000 x 1000 mm, to order castings of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, to fulfill electrical-discharge operations.
Mould testing is carried out on thermoplastic automatic machine, mod. 800/315CDC, made by Battenfeld in 1998, larger moulds with injection volume exceeding 400 cm3 can be tested at one of the plants manufacturing TV set housings.
The moulds and dies are designed with the use of SolidWorks and AutoCADis possible as well.
