Plastics Cleaning

Reduce scrap, improve product quality

Clean mould cavities are a major concern for plastic part manufacturers in maintaining today’s high quality standards. The build-up of unwanted surface residues from either the product mix itself, mould releases or the labeling process can create various problems, ranging from product release (“knock out”) to inferior product quality and possible damage to tools.

Flash on the product also creates challenges for manufacturers. Mould halves leave a parting line in the final product, and that parting line, or flash, must be removed for product quality.

Traditional cleaning and deflashing methods involve tedious and ineffective manual processes using chemicals and hand tools. Cold Jet’s alternative cleaning process provides a non-abrasive and environmentally responsible method that allows moulds and product to be cleaned in a fraction of the time, allowing increased cycles between preventive maintenance. In addition, moulds can be cleaned hot and in-place, without water, chemicals or creation of secondary waste.
