I decided that I would use today’s Throwback Thursday blog to sort of back up my July 26 slideshow blog on mold maintenance and repair products by presenting the first of a three-part series on the topic from MMT’s March 2005 issue. The author is Steve Johnson from ToolingDocs, someone who is widely respected in the industry for his knowledge and training programs on mold repair and maintenance.

It can’t be said enough how important proper, systemized mold maintenance is to the overall productivity of molds. This topic remains relevant 11 years later, and will most likely remain relevant for some time to come. For those who read today’s Part 1 on Setting Up Shop and end up wanting more, click here for Part 2, which appeared in April 2005; and click here for Part 3 from May 2005.
