iD Additives Names PCS Company the Exclusive U.S. Distributor of Rust Removal System
Effective immediately, PCS is the exclusive distributor to injection molders and moldmakers in the U.S. for iD Additives’ iD Eco-Pro 360 rust removal systems.
In a release, Nick Sotos, President of iD Additives, called PCS one of the leading suppliers to the injection molding industry in the U.S., noting the company’s extensive sales network. PCS’ Paul Hauser, meanwhile, noted how the iD technology promotes sustainability.
Described by iD Additives as green, water-based, environmentally safe, and EPA tested and verified, iD Eco-Pro 360 is a rust removal and preventative product for use with injection molds, blown film dies and other products. Some cited benefits include removal of mill oil, flash rust and white rust without etching; the ability to provide a coating for rust protection; and compability with all ferrous and non-ferrous metal surfaces. iD notes that Eco-Pro is also reusable, with the potential to be re-applied numerous times after filtering out any rust particles.
iD Additives has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with PCS company in the U.S. for its Eco-Pro 360 mold removal system.
Lifters can cause tool maintenance, repair, and processing issues if not designed properly. Here we begin a series on how to avoid all this.
At my first production meeting with my new employer, I was told, “We want you to establish a preventive maintenance program that is based on maximum cycle counts for all our molds.” Then, before I could launch into an explanation of how best to determine maximum cycle counts, I was hit with the follow-up: “So, how many cycles do you think our molds can safely run before we need to clean them?”Leaving my crystal ball at home and unable to get my x-ray vision working, there was no way to answer this question with any real accuracy.
In part one of this four-part series, we focus on the molding machine and the ejection system as culprits.
