WEBINAR: Remote Standardization, Validation, and Monitoring of Injection Molds
Register for a free webinar hosted by Progressive Components to be held tomorrow, Wednesday, May 15, at 2:00 p.m EST. Take an in-depth look into a proven system for monitoring mold performance and maintenance.
If you are a molder, mold builder or OEM, you know the importance of communication and collaboration from all parties to successfully implement a product/program launch. Once in production, how do you verify and maintain parameters to confirm the expectations set before the launch are being met? During this webinar, we will discuss a method that ensures OEM specs are followed during tool build and later allows for remote mold validation. We will then present a proven system for monitoring mold performance and maintenance - which includes alerts to tool owners when deviations occur – regardless of whether the mold is nearby or across the world.
- Why monitoring your tools is critical to a program's success
- The importance of establishing specifications and expectations for your tools
- How to properly collect and file data for proper mold validation
- The benefits of monitoring mold performance and maintenance for maximum productivity
Lorena entered the plastics industry 25 years ago in an operations role at a Chicagoland mold builder. She continued her career as a Program Launch Manager for a large Tier 1, ensuring all aspects of a launch from design, prototype, PPAP, and continuous improvement aligned with customer expectations. In 2009, Lorena joined Progressive Components and evolved her role to now include assisting OEMs, Tiers and Mold Builders with the implementation on Tooling Specifications and System Monitoring, a means by which all stakeholders work and communicate in tandem for maximum overall end product competitiveness.

Mold cleaning is just one part of a systematic and comprehensive approach to mold maintenance. Here’s one moldmaker’s strategy for injection mold cleaning and an explanation of where and why different techniques are employed.
Tool steel refers to a variety of carbon and alloy steels that are particularly well-suited to be made into tools, however, special attention needs to be paid during their heat treatment so as to achieve the best properties for a given application.
