An executive of a major medical molding corporation once told me that mold maintenance is a crucial, but often overlooked, aspect of optimizing mold performance. Over the last 14 years I’ve worked closely with mold maintenance “gurus” Steve Johnson, Randy Winton, Mike Burroughs (ToolingDocs) and other experts who have proven this out with first-hand experiences they’ve shared in articles for MMT and elsewhere.

It’s troubling to think that even today, with the many advancements in mold technologies, there are still companies that have not made the connection between systemized maintenance (including using the right tools for the job) and a mold’s performance and profitability. For that matter, precise and systemized mold repair is just as critical, as is reestablishing the right surface finish.

Please take a few minutes to view my slideshow because it brings you a sampling of products and technologies available to advance your mold maintenance, repair and surface treatment operations. Some were featured at Amerimold, but in case you missed it, take a look!
