The molding process has evolved both for the processing of the mold and for the expanding materials used.
The molds used are almost all aluminum forms with surface finishes based on the aesthetic effects to be obtained.
The items normally produced by molds in the footwear sector are: soles, safety shoes, sports shoes, ski boots and foam shoes.
Mold maintenance, understood as a cleaning process, has always been a critical factor, today even more felt due to the use of increasingly tough compounds to remove and the morphology of the mold itself which, for aesthetic reasons, has always become more difficult to treat.
The main criticalities in the cleaning of molds in the footwear sector are: the removal of the severely adhered compounds or expanding agents, the removal of the fumes residues generated by the injection and compression operations, the removal of rubber residues especially in the smaller inlets of the mold and the maintenance of all the aesthetic parts of the mold.
The specific BicarJet process designed for mold cleaning in the footwear sector allows to clean even the most complex molds with the utmost accuracy.
Our cleaning system ensures complete removal of residues even in the smallest cavities and in the most complex geometries.
Maximum cleaning efficiency and accuracy even on the latest generation molds with laser-treated surfaces and with a few micron slots without loss of the original aesthetic effect.
The BicarJet system does not damage the surface of the mold, it preserves the burr-cutters, the chrome plating and the sharp edges.
The use of low pressures, bicarbonate foodgrade and the total absence of chemical products makes the BicarJet solution the safest for the operator.
All our solutions are built in Italy keeping in mind the ease of use for the operator.
The special bicarbonate used has a granulometry designed to treat even the molds with smaller cavities.
The micro bicarbonate particles, fired on the molds, disintegrate in the impact taking away the dirt with them, without scratching the surfaces.
