Today’s market needs are diversifying, and the world economy is fluctuating. The goal of efficient management is to achieve a just-in-time (JIT) as well as single-minute exchange of die (SMED) manufacturing process. Production lines are often required to make a relatively small quantity of parts in a short time so the order can be delivered quickly. Doing this easily and safely — while being able to compete in the global market — requires a quick mold change system.
Using a quick mold change system, injection molding operations become safer and more efficient. Heavy tools are swiftly moved into position and are located securely and repeatably with quick change mold clamps. Faster changeover means less downtime, more capacity and increased operational flexibility. Productivity rises, and that means a healthier bottom line.
Quick Mold Change System for Injection Molding
Changing molds in a traditional system can be time-consuming, laborious and even dangerous. When you install a Pascal Quick Mold Change (QMC) System, hydraulic or pneumatic quick mold change clamps automatically and safely fasten and unfasten the mold from the machine. The mold is moved quickly and easily, and clamped into the right position every time. Once the material for the subsequent job is put into the machine and the mold quickly clamped, your next job is ready — in the shortest possible time.
Quick Mold Change System Optimized to Meet Your Needs
There are many types of molding machine and mold tooling options. Manufacturers have different ways of organizing for quick changeover. Pascal Engineering Inc. can evaluate your situation and requirements, and develop the optimal automatic mold changing system for your process and operation – utilizing mold clamps, die clamps or magnetic clamps. From automatic clamps to a complete mold change system, we can assemble a solution that will lower costs, improve safety and boost productivity.
