Care and maintenance of your Forming machine is critical to ensure proper operation, extend the life of your equipment, and produce high quality products. The following are some important issues and considerations regarding molding machine care and maintenance

Regular Cleaning: Forming machines should be cleaned regularly, both internally and externally. Accumulated dust, contaminants and residues may affect the operation of the machine and the quality of the product.

Lubrication Maintenance: Moving parts and transmissions of the forming machine require proper lubrication to minimize friction and wear. Regularly check the condition of the lubricant and replace and replenish it in time.

Mold Maintenance: The molds of the forming machine need to be inspected and maintained regularly to ensure that their surfaces are smooth, undamaged, and dimensionally accurate. Heavily worn molds may affect the quality and consistency of the product.

Cooling System: A cooling system is required to control the temperature during the forming process. Ensure that the cooling system pipes are free and the water quality is clean to avoid quality problems caused by poor cooling effect.

Electrical system: Regularly check the electrical connections, sensors, switches and other components to ensure that the electrical system is working properly and to avoid electrical failures and safety hazards.

Air circuit system: Check the air pipeline, pressure control valve and other air circuit components to ensure that the air circuit is smooth, to avoid unstable pressure leading to product quality problems.

Safety equipment: Forming machine should be equipped with necessary safety equipment, such as protective cover, emergency stop button. Regularly check whether these safety equipments function properly to ensure the safety of operators.

Train operators: Train operators to understand the operating procedures of the forming machine, common problems and their solutions, as well as basic maintenance knowledge.

Keep a Maintenance Log: Create a maintenance log to record what, when, and how each maintenance visit was performed. This helps track the maintenance history of the equipment and identify potential problems.

Regular Inspection and Maintenance Program: Establish a regular inspection and maintenance program, based on the frequency of use and working environment of the equipment, to ensure that the equipment is always in the best condition.

Emergency Spare Parts: Keep a supply of commonly used spare parts for replacement and repair in the event of an emergency.

Maintenance and repair of the molding machine needs to be carried out regularly, and the specific maintenance measures and frequency can be adjusted according to the type, model and usage of the molding machine. Maintaining good maintenance habits can reduce the failure rate, improve production efficiency and product quality.
