How to Clean Large Plastic Injection Molds
Complex molds require careful cleaning.
Complex injection molds represent substantial investments by plastic injection molding companies which, in order to protect their investments, must establish cleaning procedures to remove a variety of stubborn contaminants. These include burned on residues, oils, flashing and grease that if allowed to remain will result in product rejection by the quality control department. Hand scrubbing with solvents simply does not do the job. In addition to being time consuming, manual cleaning introduces potential health hazards for personnel and solvent disposal challenges. The solution is using an ultrasonic cleaner instead of scrubbing in a solvent-based parts washer.
Why an Ultrasonic Cleaner is Ideal for Injection Molding
In three words: thorough, safe and fast. Contaminants missed by manual cleaning are usually those deep in crevices and on other surfaces impossible to reach. Moreover, highly finished mold surfaces can be scratched or otherwise damaged by manual processes. Large molds can be difficult to maneuver, further risking damage during manual cleaning. And the longer it takes to clean the molds the greater the risk of damage.
Ultrasonic cleaning action solves all three issues.
It is thorough because it reaches all mold surfaces immersed in a biodegradable water-based ultrasonic cleaning solution. It is safe because while the cleaning action can be termed “violent” it occurs so fast that highly polished injection mold surfaces are not damaged during the cleaning process. By fast we mean 10 to 15 minutes although large complex molds may require a longer cleaning cycle.
Ultrasonics: The ONLY Way to Clean with Confidence
Regardless of the source of the dirt or contamination, AG Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems are designed to accommodate a wide variety of uses in diverse industries. Fast, effective and efficient, our machines will allow you to clean virtually any type of part or component. The following is just a short list of the many different types of items that have been cleaned using our systems.
Plastic Mold Cleaning by Cavitation Action
Cavitation action is described as the implosion of countless minute bubbles against surfaces of products immersed in the cleaning solution. Bubbles are created when generator-powered transducers bonded to the ultrasonic cleaner tank vibrate at ultrasonic frequencies measured in thousands of cycles per second or kilohertz (kHz).
Selecting the cleaning equipment is governed to a large extent by the size of molds being cleaned. Ultrasonic cleaners are available ranging from small benchtop units to industrial-sized floor-mounted equipment that can be fitted for automated cleaning and rinsing cycles. But do select a cleaner with a heater, timer and sweep mode.
The process is fairly straightforward regardless of equipment size. Here’s a simplified description that can be modified based on your specific operations:
Rinsing tip: You’ll want to thoroughly remove cleaning solution residues. Complex shapes may call for a spray rinse or, in certain cases, rinsing by cavitation in an ultrasonic rinse tank.

Q - Why do I need to rinse parts after cleaning?
Rinsing is as important as cleaning in many applications and should be given the same attention as cleaning. Rinsing removes residues of the cleaning chemistry and the contaminants it has loosened to leave a part completely free of residue. Parts properly rinsed in de-ionized water or water processed by reverse osmosis will dry completely without water spots. Rinsing can be improved by increasing water flow or by adding more cascading rinse tanks. See the paper entitled "Ten Minutes to Better Rinsing" in the technical information section of this website for additional information. Further enhancement of rinsing can be realized by adding ultrasonics to the rinse tank(s).
Q - What type of chemistry promotes the most effective cavitation?
Cleaning chemical selection is extremely important to the overall success of the ultrasonic or megasonic cleaning process. The selected chemical must be compatible with the base metal being cleaned and have the capability to remove the soils that are present. It must also cavitate well. Most cleaning chemicals can be used satisfactorily with ultrasonics or megasonics. Some are formulated especially for use with ultrasonics and
megasonics. However, the non-foaming formulations normally used in spray washing applications should be avoided. Highly wetted formulations are preferred. Many of the new petroleum cleaners, as well as petroleum- and terpene-based semi-aqueous cleaners, are compatible with ultrasonics and megasonics. Use of these formulations may require some special equipment considerations, such as increased ultrasonic or megasonic power, to be effective.
