Mold change system.
This manufacturer of injection molding machines has added Tecnomagnete's Quad-Press quick mold clamping system to its line of factory-integrated QMC options for its injection molding machines. The Quad-Press system can be used on vertical or horizontal injection machines, and with standard or multishot/revolving-plate molds. Quad-Press and other QMC systems are available on all sizes of the company's injection machines, including Roboshot, Powerline, NT, Maxima, Magna Toggle, Magna Vertical and Ferromatik Milacron K-TEC machines. Molds weighing tons can be changed in minutes with this system, compared to hours for traditional mold clamping techniques, according to the company. The Tecnomagnete clamping action is also said to eliminate distortion. (Milacron)
