The maintenance and repair of pressure die casting tools is an expanding field. The time frame for this type of job is often extremely short. We know that having the resources to perform maintenance and repairs in a fast, professional manner is extremely important to many of our customers. With our extensive resources, flexible staff and maximum use of work time thanks to shift working, we can often accomplish this type of work extremely quickly.

Welding is often involved in maintenance and repairs. Richardssons has the technology to be able to weld inside pressure die casting tools, and our experienced welders are specially trained in welding tool steel. This training allows us to produce first class results.

Another method we use when doing preventive maintenance is micro blasting. Micro blasting is done in two stages to compress and level the mould surfaces. The result also improves the flow properties of the molten metal. Richardssons has two Swiss micro blasting units.
