Cleaning of Rubber Moulds and Tooling

Cleaning of Rubber Moulds and Tooling

Mould cleaning with laser light results in residue-free moulds

Whether its EPDM, nitrile (synthetic rubber), or natural rubber – laser cleaning can process any mould or tool used in elastomeric material manufacturing. The laser cleaning process removes release agents, product residues and contaminants gently and safely from precision tool surfaces.

Even after thousands of cleaning cycles, no contact is made with the moulds, thus the laser method does not cause mechanical damage or surface erosion… the result is extended tool life!

Benefits

  • Abrasive and media-free
  • Hot moulds can be cleaned in situ
  • Low operating costs
  • Quiet
  • Green technology – no chemicals or secondary waste to dispose of
  • Extends the life of valuable moulds and tools

Limitations

  • Moulds with deep undercuts
  • Deep & small diameter holes
  • Moulds with mirror chrome or high polished finishes
  • Thick & strongly adhered residues
