Molds are polished to aid in ejection, for visual appearance, and to improve the functional properties of the part. It is important to inspect the surfaces to be polished, keeping in mind the finish that is required to determine the steps to be taken.
Remember: Inspect, bench, stone, and diamond. Finishing standards ease communication from customer to engineer and from mold maker to polisher, and help eliminate delays and added expenses.
