P R O D U C T S 22 Mold Maintenance & Repair Ultrasonic Systems Handle Heavy-Duty Molding Tools Blue Wave Ultrasonics manufactures heavy-duty ultrasonic cleaning systems and environmentally friendly detergents specifcally designed for injection molding tools. The systems create a powerful, microscopic scrubbing action said to efectively remove outgassing residue, grease and rust, even from intricate areas, including water lines. They do not use hazardous solvents or surface-damaging abrasives. The company says its exclusive magnetostrictive transducers enable the systems to withstand heavier loads, longer cycle times and higher operating temperatures required to efectively clean tools. Blue Wave Ultrasonics Inc. / Electroless Nickel Coating Boosts Wear Resistance, Cuts Friction Bales Metal Surface Solutions has developed an electroless nickel coating with nano-sized diamond particles for increased wear resistance. Diamond E.N. starts with a hardness of 54 HRC and reaches 70 HRC after heat-treating, with a coefcient of friction of 0.10 or less. The coating provides complete and even coverage, even into deep ribs, and with no buildup on the edges. Bales Metal Surface Solutions / Devices Test Hot Runner Components for Proper Functioning ToolingDocs recently introduced two additional products designed to help streamline mold maintenance operations in the toolroom. The Cable Check- er system tests hot runner cables for proper connectivity, while the Mold Checker system tests hot runner manifolds to ensure that resistances of all thermocouples and heaters are within range. According to the company, both of the portable devices enable signifcant reduction of downtime due to faulty or improperly wired components. More details about these and other product oferings, including tool- room benches, mold light bars, mold status tags and synthetic mold grease, can be found in the company's catalog, which can be viewed online or is available in printed form.
