Mould shop


Drive your mold shop more efficiently

Cost of molds makes the lifespan of a mold set a key factor for glass makers; for this reason, mold shops focus on effective management of mold repairs. So far, detailed information vital to mold shops has not been fully transmitted from the production, with no tools available to concretely collect and share this information in real time.
