Cleaning Rubber and Tire Molds

Rubber and Tires

in the elastomer and tire mold industry

When it comes to the challenge of cleaning tire molds, cleanLASER has solutions that deliver excellent results – from handheld to fully automated laser cleaning systems.

advantages of laser cleaning

    • The flexibility of use proves to be a particular advantage due to the variety of mold and profile geometries.
    • In contrast to conventional particle or ice blasting processes, the running costs of the clean laser process are negligible.
    • The laser process is not only damage-free, but also almost noiseless.
    • Due to its compact design, the cleanLASER can be used flexibly even where space is limited.
    • Depending on the degree of soiling, the size of the mold and the laser power, the cleaning time for a tire mold is between 25 and 75 minutes.
