Proper mold maintenance extends its lifespan and ensures optimal function. Molds should be serviced before they show wear and tear to prevent permanent damage. Routine maintenance is cost-efficient and prevents production delays.
Common mold repairs include fixing worn or damaged ejector pins, leaking water lines, and hot runner leakage. Twin Mold can also perform mold revisions, which involves updating certain components in order to improve the mold’s functionality. Our experienced repair team has the capability to reverse engineer mold repairs without CAD files as a reference.
Repair Process Steps include:
Disassemble the mold
Clean and evaluate moving components for replacement
Replace components if needed
Test hot runner system
Polish and service molding surfaces
The Twin Mold project management team will send status updates and coordinate with you during the entire maintenance or repair process.
