What's New at ToolingDocs

ToolingDocs Announces New Mold Assessment Service

Because shop maintenance practices can be influenced by the design, type and condition of a company’s fleet of tools, ToolingDocs, a leading authority on mold maintenance, announces the addition of yet another unique, new service option: Mold Assessment.  

Mold Assessments entail ToolingDocs evaluating the overall condition and design features of an injection mold, including mold actions, venting, lubrication, tooling preloads, shut-offs, cooling and other mold design and condition factors.

A Mold Assessment is a viable option for situations like the following:

• An OEM that doesn’t have experienced tooling technicians on staff, but would benefit by having someone
   with that capability assess their molds

• Transferred tooling – work with an unbiased party who doesn’t stand to benefit by the mold, but has
   extensive experience in monitoring its condition and determining accurate, appropriate maintenance
   practices for it

• Molders who would like to have an unbiased second opinion about the state of a mold.

This systematic mold condition evaluation can be performed in-house at the customer’s plant or at the ToolingDocs Maintenance Center in north central Ohio. A summary report highlighting areas of concern is then generated from the assessment along with suggested actions that can be taken to correct or improve any issues.
