The company has a comprehensive mold refurbishment and repair program, and can help customers with an emergency quick repair, an extensive review of a family of molds or a complete repair program overall. The company repairs all types of tooling, regardless of the manufacturer.
The mold maintenance program has two tiers of refurbishment and repair. In Tier One, the finished product is a quality mold where all components including wear items, are as close to its original design as possible, with a near OEM life expectancy. All components that the company manufactures are to their original design and will have updated prints for future replacement of parts. Technical support is offered for start-up and processing.
For Tier Two, the finished product is a mold that can go back into production in a shorter time frame when compared to a full refurbishment while maintaining all quality specifications. Depending on each mold repair in Tier Two, there may be variations in tool life expectancy as well as interchangeability.
