Dry ice blasting systems have helped automotive molders meet stringent industry demands such as 6-Sigma, Kaizen, 5S and TPM (Total Productive Maintenance). Dry ice blasting allows operators to clean molds while they are still hot and in the press. Cleaning with dry ice enables molders to optimize their manufacturing process by cleaning contaminants from cavities, vents and hard-to-reach places faster, better and more economically than traditional methods.
