- Sliding parts, guide parts, cores, on the mold should be observed at any time, regularly checked, and explained in shift record
- Mold rust and oil removal treatment
- Heating, maintenance of control system is especially important for hot runner molds
- Operator should remove residual materials in time, keep inside and outside of mold inside injection moulding machine clean and tidy, and do a good job in resettlement management and civilized production
- Strengthen life cycle management of mold and strictly implement mold resume card system
Basis for mold overhaul comes from three aspects: contents of mold history card (based on data recorded, which are the most common damages of mold, which parts are most susceptible to mold damage, which mold is most vulnerable, the most common causes of mold damage, and which damages have the most serious consequences). First-line technicians and operators summarize problems that may arise during molding of injection molded plastic parts and problems, technical department summarize problems of plastic structure according to requirements of injection molding manufacturers. Mold resume card is mainly used for two aspects: one is to monitor direct or indirect costs generated; the other is a special analysis for mold problems. Of course, people are interested not only in the damage of mold, but also to find out cause, find a solution, and try to prevent similar problems from happening.
- Full-time maintenance personnel of injection moulding should prepare a mold maintenance plan and maintain mold as planned.
- A mold library should be set up, special personnel should be set up, and mold files should be established, and computer management should be carried out on molds if conditions permit.
- For storage and retrieval of forming mold, special tools (such as electric forklifts) should be used as much as possible to make mold move smoothly.
Whether it is maintenance of screw, barrel of injection moulding machine, condensation of injection moulding machine, even injection moulding maintenance, it is of vital importance to injection molding manufacturers. Above eight aspects are main methods and points of attention for injection moulding maintenance. Warranty of injection moulding is of great significance for reducing injection molding manufacturers costs and improving injection molding manufacturers profits!
