Die Lubricant Central System Maintenance

Die lubricant central systems and spray systems are key components of a finely tuned die cast process. Regular system cleanings are not only recommended as part of a preventative maintenance program, but also essential to get the most out of your lubricant. Over time, dissolved minerals and biological contamination from dilution water can clog feed lines and spray systems. Extended shutdown periods can present a great opportunity for a thorough system cleaning and lead to a fresh and reinvigorated start to production.

Let us get to work for you. Contact us today for a free consultation and information about available maintenance products best suited for you.

Die Lubricant Central System cleanings are essential. Our helpful maintenance guidebook can help.

Die Thermal Control (DTC)

An innovative technology designed by INPROTEC IRT for monitoring mold surface temperatures, the Die Thermal Control (DTC) thermographic system brings consistent quality and optimization of your die casting process. The surface temperature of the mold is a dynamic process parameter that must be kept within an optimal and uniform range during each casting cycle, because this affects not only the castings produced, but also the life of the mold. The system can be monitored on the production floor or remotely helping to simplify the comparison of thermal performance across different production runs. It also enhances die thermal regulation systems and release agent application management to support extended die life along with reduced scrap, cycle-time, and wastewater.

The DTC thermographic system consists of a trolley on wheels (also in Fix or Remote versions) and two radiometric thermal imagers integrated in special air-cooled housings. The IR camera acquires real-time thermal images of the molds, providing real time information for process optimization. The DTC thermographic system integrates all electrical and pneumatic equipment for controlling the thermal imagers and protective housings.
