When you are in production, even small changes that lead to value addition affect overall productivity. Even the accumulation of mold rust preventative to your line of molds can be of great importance as it may make the entire process smooth & thus less time-consuming.
Rust Preventative: Accelerating the mold change-over process
The importance of a swift mold lineup cannot be denied. Whether it is time to align the molds for production or simply propping up the mold after winding up the output for today to start efficiently tomorrow, functional, small changes can help you speed up the entire process.
Coating a mold with rust preventative is an age-old process that helps keep them safe. This process is performed even during the dull times of production. However, before putting the mold into the line, you must take out the rust preventative, which is a time taking process. Moreover, this needs to be done repetitively
to ensure that nothing is leaching out and marking parts of the plastic process equipment.
Most production houses prefer a “dry” rust preventative as it does not penetrate into ejector pins slides, cams, and other moving mold parts and allows a faster & cleaner startup when putting the mold into production. This very type of rust preventative “comes off” the mold very quickly and all at once, saving you both time and effort. This offers you time for the production line like never before.
One such impeccable slide rust preventatives are Slide’s Mold Shield. It is based on using a unique combination of oils that leaves a dry film on the mold’s surface. Besides offering a clean and fast start-up, this dry sheet also protects against rust for up to 2 years. The dry oil film is stuck to the surface and does not stick to the ejector pins or any hand-to-clean areas making the start-up easy, efficient & time-saving.
The best part about this shield is that it is free from any chlorinated solvents, so if you were searching for one, your search ends here.
