Mold maintenance has moved up the priority list of many toolrooms across the mold manufacturing supply chain this past year, so in addition to MoldMaking Technology’s three-part Scientific Maintenance article series with mold maintenance expert Steve Johnson of Mold Trax, we thought a webinar was in order to dig a little deeper.

- The importance of moving to a 4.0 maintenance culture for OEMs, molders, tool designers and builders, toolroom managers and repair technicians
- The 8 factors of better mold performance
- The value of shop floor language standardization and how to take the first step
An interactive part of this webinar this scorecard that will be sent to attendees after registration is complete. Presenters will review the components of the test, provide instructions for taking the test and with then reveal and explain the 5 scoring ranges so attendees can gauge their toolroom’s 4.0 mold maintenance documentation capabilities.
When completed, the 5 scoring ranges (Reactive, Basic, Average, Best Practice and World Class) will be displayed on screen, so attendees can see where their toolrooms place on the scorecard. Steve and Glenn will then walk attendees through the industry’s average mold maintenance score and open the discussion up for Q&A.
This should be a good one!
A look at non-destructive cleaning processes for complex molds that require the removal of tenacious surface contamination to ensure surface quality and longevity of precision mold and molded part surfaces.
In time and with practice, each polisher will develop his or her own tricks and short cuts.
If you have not set up a proactive mold maintenance program, your facility runs efficiently only until the next major problem or repair.
