Amerimold's Maintain block of conference sessions will help teach you about the skills and systems necessary to overcome mold repair issues, including welding, surface treatment, maintenance and data management strategies. Check out the line-up:

Repair/Design, Overcoming Repair and Part Quality Challenges with Design: Topics will include: proper venting and standards, parting line bearing surface, unsupported ejection and lifter lengths, ejector stroke, supports, wear surfaces, hardness, coatings, design for ease of maintenance (in the press and on the bench), proper component fit and function, timing lifters, proper lubricants and cleaning methods. Royal Technologies Corp., Randy Kerkstra

Surface Treatment, Making Zero Parting Lines Possible: Examination of the partnership between the texturing source and the toolmaker as they work together to design, build, fit and apply the decorative finish to meet design intent will be covered in this presentation. The design and function of the tool with regards to access, slide or cam pockets and lock-down hardware, first shots, final fitting, texture application and sampling will be discussed. Early and ongoing collaboration and communication among all parties involved will be emphasized. Mold Tech, Paul Williams

Mold Maintenance, Five Reasons to Celebrate Mold Cleaning: An integrated approach to success will highlight five reasons to celebrate mold cleaning not postpone it: 1. mold cleaning can be accomplished effectively in the machine; 2. zero waste; 3. faster; 4. without causing mold wear; and 5. without leaving any chemical residue. Molders and toolmakers using dry ice will increase yield, extend asset life, increase productivity, reduce operating costs and improve environmental quality and worker safety. Cold Jet, Steve Wilson

Surface Treatment, Plating Aluminum Molds for Optimal Performance: This presentation will review which aluminum types are best for a polished finish, provide tips on how polished finishes and coatings can be used for maximum protection and part release, give an inside look at masking techniques, and share best practices for communicating and coordinating with your plating. Case studies will reinforce the importance of coatings and finishes for optimal performance. Bales Mold Service, Harry Raimondi and Phoenix Proto Technologies, Bob Lammon

Surface Treatment, Laser Texturing: Practical Applications: Presenters will explain the laser texturing process, review its current uses versus the traditional chemical texturing process, describe its benefits and limitations to the mold manufacturing industry with a look at costs and lead times, and share examples of products being textured with this technology now and in the future. Custom Etch Inc., Donald A Melonio and GF Machining Solutions, Chad Hase

Repair, Build with Maintenance and Repair in Mind: Participate in a Q&A on what happens when you don’t plan on maintenance and repair for the life of a mold program. United Tool and Mold specializes in mold repair, but also builds plastic injection, blow and compression molds as well as performing engineering changes, engineering services, service-on-site, laser welding and in-house texturing. United Tool & Mold, Scott Phipps

Repair, Tooling Data for the Entire Supply Chain: This presentation will explain how combining an online platform with mobile app technology can improve the way your company manages and communicates data, both internally and with outside suppliers, to guarantee that your tooling, process and maintenance information is always available. Tool Stats, Sean Brolley

Repair, Justifying, Specifying and Implementing an In-House Laser Welding Program: The sheer volume of welding and the demand for quick turnaround forced this moldmaker to consider implementing an in-house laser welding program. This presentation will share their journey by discussing purchasing considerations, the selection process, training, customer benefits and some laser welding tips and tricks. Industrial Molds Group, Justin Carlson
