amerimold 2014: MAINTAIN
Co-presenter: ToolingDocs
Goal: To develop the skills and systems necessary to understand how much unscheduled mold stops are costing your company; identify and target these and other high cost mold operating issues (part quality, mold function, tooling and labor costs, etc…) that take large bites out of the profit margin; recognize a substandard maintenance environment that dictates not only daily bench habits but also negatively influences the desire and motivation of your team to raise personal skill levels and excel in this hands-on trade; and, see the benefits of advancing the skill levels of craftsmen so they can repair the many dings, nicks, scratches, scuffs, etc., encountered on tooling components and how it will reduce repair costs and downtime. It does not require 40 years of experience to weld, fit and polish many tooling components. It’s about appropriate training in specific crafts and the desire to learn.
Who Should Attend: Molding Facility Owners, Plant Managers, Toolroom Managers and Supervisors. OEMs and those responsible for tooling productivity and costs, plus personnel at mold building companies who are responsible for repairing and maintaining their customers' tools should also attend.
Moderator: Steve Johnson, Operations Manager, ToolingDocs
