Your choice of welding method for mold repair will vary based on your needs. Are you looking for a large structural weld? Then a MIG or TIG welder might be the right choice.

But what about small repairs in your mold? How do you respond when you get a small scratch or you have a parting line flashing? That’s where a micro welder comes into play.

Here are 5 situations where you may want to consider a micro welder for in-house mold and die repair:

  1. Small deformity: Micro welders are ideally suited for repairing a small scratch, dent, pin hole, or other issue.
  2. Low heat required: A micro welder produces very little heat and is an ideal solution if damage to adjacent areas from splatter or high heat is a concern.
  3. Large mold: A portable micro welder can be carried to the mold or die for repair directly in the press, thus minimizing downtime.
  4. Ease of use: A micro welder often does not require previous welding experience or a welding helmet.
  5. Budget conscious: Micro welders are much less expensive – both upfront and in ongoing maintenance – than far more costly solutions like laser welders.

If you check the boxes on any of these five, you may want to consider our MoldMender, a high quality, low cost micro welder. If you’re unsure about which welding technology is right for you, get in touch and we’ll help you select the right solution for your mold repair needs.
