Husky expands mould audit and refurbishing programs

Husky Injection Molding Systems : 05 November, 2001  (Company News)
Dedicated pre-form mould refurbishing groups located in Canada, Luxembourg, Brazil and Japan offer local service for conversions and refurbishments, including hot runner repairs and mould training.
Dedicated pre-form mould refurbishing groups located in Canada, Luxembourg, Brazil and Japan offer local service for conversions and refurbishments, including hot runner repairs and mould training.

Mould audits and refurbishments help customers maximize the longevity of a mould and minimise downtime. The fact that Husky offers this service locally makes even more sense for customers. A local presence allows for faster action. With local Husky staff support and inventory, turnaround times for mould audits and refurbishings are minimised while logistics costs, import taxes and duties are reduced. To make it even easier, Husky also offers mould conversions and refurbishments directly at the customer’s facility.

“We can also substitute hot runners during a hot runner refurbishment or rebuild so a customer’s production can continue uninterrupted,” says Nadeem Amin, Husky’s Product Manager for Index Systems. “Solutions like this help moulders maximize production - even during breakdowns.”

Mould audits consider a number of factors:
- Processing parameters
- Visual mould condition
- Visual moulded part inspection
- Known mould issues

Mould refurbishment programs are developed based on the audit results and take into account:
- Costs
- Tool life
- Downtime
- Pre-form quality

Husky’s factory trained technicians in Canada, Luxembourg, Brazil and Japan perform a variety of tasks, including:
- Disassembling and inspecting components for wear and damage
- Recommending replacements or re-work, as required
- Cleaning cooling channels to remove cycle-limiting contamination
- Fully rebuilding mould shoes to ensure stack longevity

Changing market trends can render a pre-form design obsolete or make suppliers who mould overweight performs less competitive. Husky’s mould refurbishing and bottle development groups also offer pre-form evaluations to identify opportunities to reduce pre-form weight through lightweighting or thread conversions.
