Tech Showcase, Mold Maintenance, Repair and Surface Treatment
If you've been searching for solutions to help your molds run as optimally as possible, this slideshow is for you.
I’ve blogged in the past about the importance of mold maintenance. It’s truly a strategic way to keep molds running at their best because good mold maintenance is preventative and, ideally, systemized. Then there’s mold repair, a more reactive process to be sure, but still important because mold downtime means no product is being manufactured, and that's not a good thing. Mold surface treatment is closely related to mold maintenance and repair and can be a great indicator of mold wear in some cases. But even if you don’t use surface treatments in that way, you do use it to protect your molds and probably also to facilitate better release of molded parts.
Today’s Technology Showcase brings you products that can offer benefits in all three categories. Take a few minutes to review this slideshow and find the latest mold maintenance, repair and surface treatment options we’re hearing about at MMT.
