A New Technology That Can Improve Mould Maintenance

Mouldmakers have a lot of work to do.    Whenever mouldmakers sell a mould, it’s their responsibility to stand by what is given. Thus, every mouldmaker strives to build moulds such as cap moulds, bottle moulds, etc. of the highest quality.  Read further to know why a high-quality mould is so important for its manufacturer and user(s) as well.

When does mouldmakers stand upon a sticky wicket?

Most users as well as Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) expect that every mould should de-risk their tooling investments. In actuality, such expectancies get every Mould Manufacturer in India and other parts of the world in a tight spot. The disadvantages are heightened as:-

• Mouldmakers do not really know how a mould will be used once it gets delivered at a client’s site.
• Mould manufacturers are not aware of maintenance schedules that will be followed at a client’s site.
• The mould builders, in reality, do not have any type of control or influence upon how a mould will be used by a client.

Due to such reasons, any type of mould can come back to a mouldmaker as a no-charge repair assignment. And such assignments often bring along with them stained reputation for the mould builder. Mentioned below are a couple of tips that help mouldmakers in saving their goodwill.

The new monitoring technology

Technology, nowadays, has really helped in making a mouldmaker’s life hassle free. Mouldmakers can now install a monitoring device that informs them about a mould’s present status and condition. The device can offer real-time reports to a mouldmaker. Such a device really helps in scheduling preventive maintenance programs and increasing efficiency of moulds.

At present, the monitoring device has upgraded and also helps document working history of moulds. The new technology is radical and can be easily added within a Pet Preform injection moulding machine in India.

The monitoring device helps both customers and mouldmakers to enjoy the benefit of a mould’s long life.

What Is Plastic Revolution?

A technology by the name – Plastic Injection Moulding – revolutionised the entire manufacturing industry.  Before plastics, several other materials such as wood and metal were used to produce everyday objects. However, the developments in technology begot plastics – a cutting-edge material for the realm of manufacturing. The material gained significance in the second half of the 20th century.

Most machinery processes, at present, use several types of plasticised materials such as polymers. The different variants of plasticised materials are used for creating various products such as – vehicle’s dashboard and exteriors, electric appliance’s casing, buttons, etc. The production of such everyday items is possible with the help of PET Moulds. PET Preform Manufacturers are also a catalyst in the evolution of plastic.  Several new processes along with the material’s evolution have changed the way we view the world today.

What happened to the old-age plastic with messy edges?

The plastic items of the previous century had a trademark of having messy edges. The primary reason for such messy edges was lack of sophisticated technology. However, now, the technology has changed and so has the appearance of plastic items. The mankind has witnessed a growing aesthetical appeal in such items.

Unlike the past century, computers, at present, have supplanted humans in designing moulds. Today’s moulds are more sophisticated than the manmade ones. In the past, most people would remember, many plastic items having lines left on their surfaces. This was because older days never had the perfection of Computer Aided Designing (CAD) technology.

Computer technology marries moulds making

For catering to ruthless demands of the contemporary mankind, computer technology had to marry mould making. At present, plastic injection moulding is computer engineered. Present-day moulds are designed after using leading-edge computer software. The technology, however, is operated with the help of engineers only. Today, the use of leading-edge technology in moulding has taken away the messy edges from a plastic item.
