Injection Mold Maintenance
Preventative mold maintenance can greatly extend the working life of an injection mold. At Crescent we have a documented injection mold maintenance schedule, so we know exactly when to perform cleanings and inspections after the mold has run a certain amount of cycles. This schedule is determined by SPI mold classifications, the environment on the mold and what type of material is being used for the end product.
Maintenance consists of inspecting hot runners and water lines as well as lubricating, cleaning and tightening of all mold components. Besides a mold maintenance schedule, Crescent keeps a database of all injection mold maintenance performed so it can be quickly referenced when necessary.
Injection Mold Revisions
Sometimes plastic components require a mold revision to improve the performance or enhance the appearance of the part, Crescent provides quick tool modifications and product sampling for approval.
