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.


  • Understanding the Effect of Pressure in the Cavity

    Molders offer a moving target for moldmakers to adjust to by producing parts with different cavity pressures.

  • Cleaning Intricate Molds

    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.

  • Vacuum Heat Treating of Tool Steels

    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.
