Rebuilds Ensure Performance After tens of thousands of cycles you may have noticed your system just doesn’t perform the way it used to. Or maybe you’ve run high-temperature engineered materials and the tolerances just aren’t as tight. Key benefits of system rebuilds include: • Cost savings of at least 40% as compared to new systems • Extended life for your tool • Maximizing system uptime and performance Whether you need a total system rebuild, or a simple cleaning and inspection DME can help. System rebuilds can be performed on any brand of hot runner system and typically include: • Complete bake-out cleaning • Check and replace heaters and thermocouples • Inspect and correct wiring • Replace seals, bushings and other wear items • Clean or replace nozzle components • Check and validate all dimensions before re-assembling the system Repairs Get You Back Up Quickly Time is money.
