DME thinks of your mold techs in the dog days of summer.

�

June's Amerimold 2014 show in Novi, Mich. featured lots of mold components and other hardware and software for moldmaking and repair. But DME Co., Madison Heights, Mich., broadened the concept of toolroom products. It showed off new offerings designed to make workers more comfortable and productive in hot toolrooms during the summer.

One example was Squiche electrolyte drinks in powder “fast packs” or sticks to dissolve in water. Also available are new fans for cooling work areas. Supplied by Airmaster Fan Co., Jackson, Mich., these include floor-mounted pedestal models and ceiling-mounted versions, as well as water-misting fans.
