Designed for tracking the performance and maintenance of molds and dies, MoldTrax software is now available in a cloud-based platform, enabling maintenance managers and technicians to more easily report, store and access critical data through virtually any internet-connected device.
Functions include: “Inventory Monitoring” that allows users to see how many parts are left in stock; “Hot Runner Specs” that provides access to manifold maintenance and repair instructions, images and system specifications; “Maintenance Alert” reports that show preventive maintenance (PM) measures that are coming due, overdue or up to date, based on automatic cycle counts set by the user; and a Performance Dashboard that displays the current ratio of scheduled vs. unscheduled mold stops, as well as the number of molds currently in production and their PM status.
