    In the delicate choreography of mold creation, the choice of a cutting tool, both preceding and following the alchemy of heat treatment, is a symphony that resonates through the performance of the mold. As the raw materials undergo a metamorphosis, both in volume and geometry, a ballet of stress unfolds during the rough operation procedure, demanding an astute selection of tools and methodologies.

 

     Amidst this dance, Antrametal's commitment to perfection unveils a ritual—when the volume change surpasses 30% of the original bloc's total vacuum, a harmonious stress-relieving tension procedure is artfully applied post-hardening. This not only forestalls the inception of micro-fractures but also elegantly mitigates any impending deterioration.

 

    The grand finale unveils the creation of a mold surface resilient to the rigors of its lifetime. Here, the geometry of the cutting tool and the poetic coating of its surface emerge as architects shaping the stress levels of the mold's visage. In the mystical realm of EDM and WEDM, where hardened surfaces undergo a chemical metamorphosis, Antrametal navigates with finesse. Delving as deep as 25μm, unwanted white layer areas are banished, revealing a surface pristine and resistant. Armed with modern cutting equipment cloaked in low-friction finery, Antrametal not only minimizes the effects of EDM and WEDM operations but also achieves the pinnacle of resistance against microstructural challenges and surface corrosion, thus crafting a mold that stands resilient against the tests of time.
