Mold Cleaning / Die Cleaning

Cleaning molds or dies are often required for the production of quality, consistent parts.  In various manufacturing processes, a mold or a die may be used to form a part.  After several uses, a mold or die needs to be cleaned.  Residue and contaminants build up over time in molds or dies.  Without proper cleaning, part quality and consistency will suffer.

Molds and dies can be cleaned by hand, with blasting, or possibly even in a mass finishing piece of equipment.  High frequency finishers, such as a Walther MV unit, are well suited for mold and die finishing.  Air blasting is commonly used, as is wet blasting for mold or die cleaning.  Consideration must be made in selecting appropriate media.  Improper media selection could result in damaging the molds or dies.
