Overcome the contradiction between cycle time and mold maintenance with self-cleaning mold technology. Self-cleaning can eliminate up to 400 hours of maintenance time per year, which results in 5% more production time,” says Nicolas Rivollet, Husky’s Director of Business Development. Self-cleaning is a push-button that uses controlled flash of the tool to collect and remove dust built up in the vents. Completely automated, totally reliable, and consistent, self-cleaning does not require an operator to go inside the machine, and can be performed as often as needed as there is virtually zero time penalty on production.
