Vacuum mould repair solution

Hilcona Gourmet SA, a company in the swiss food industry, was dealing with a damaged component on the production line. The Countdown Company offered a solution to save the expensive moulds. One of the main project constraints was the timing. The production is on almost 24/7, therefore a coordinated plan had to be established with the customer to carry out the repair as swiftly as possible. Working with food grade materials and the badly damaged moulds constituted a real challenge. The solution has been tested at the client’s facilities and is now operational on the production line. This project shows the Countdown Company’s flexibility and accountability in situations with high stakes.
