The key drivers to any successful manufacturing business are safety, quality, productivity and delivery. Pascal Engineering Inc. — a premier Quick Die Change (QDC) company — can help you achieve the highest standards and improve each of these areas in press stamping through optimizing the die change process.
What Is a Quick Die Change System for Press Stamping Machines?
During a die change, many things can happen that affect your key business drivers. A traditional die change process requires manually loosening and tightening bolts while physically climbing into the press, which has the potential for causing harm to workers. Plus, quality and productivity are compromised due to wasted downtime.
A quick die change system provides a way of unclamping and removing one set of tooling to replace it with another. There’s no extended setup or adjustment. Activate the quick die change clamps to secure the new tooling and the press is ready to run.
Benefits of implementing a quick die change system for press machine operations include:
Pascal’s Quick Die Change (QDC) System streamlines the clamping/unclamping and die transfer process utilizing die clamps, die lifters and more to make die changing easier and safer than ever.
