Mould care guide
- Always clean the mould after every weld
- Only use KingsWeld cleaning equipment (soft brush) to clean the mould
- Keep the mould dry and away from moisture
- Do not hit or drop the mould
- When not in use, keep the mould in its packaging for protection
- Try not to hit the edges of the mould with the conductors to be connected
- Never use a wire brush to clean the mould
- Always use the correct weld metal size, tools and handle clamps
- Handle the mould with care.
- Mould must be dry with fixed lid.
- Identification plate must be attached.
- Mould faces must be smooth, so they seal properly.
- Mould steel disc seat must not show signs of wear, chips or gouges (steel disc must seal the hole properly to prevent weld metal entering the weld cavity prior to welding).
- Tap hole must be well defined.
- Weld cavity must not show signs of wear, chips or gouges (conductors must have a 3mm gap between them prior to welding, fit snugly and not be loose in the mould).
Regular checks help keep moulds in good condition.
