Danger lurks in modern machine handling. With heavier molds and dies being used, transporting, storing and changing them becomes costly and dangerous. To accommodate the needs of transporting and changing molds, Align Production Systems has introduced its new Quick Mold-Change System.
With the Quick Change Die and Mold System from Align Production Systems, the usual one- or two-hour change is quickly reduced to 15-20 minutes. With our ergonomic benefits applied to the equipment, the handling allows “hands-off” operation.
How Does Our Quick Change Die And Mold System Work?
The Quick Mold and Die Change System transmits the mold to the press, then inserts it automatically without the use of an overhead crane or forklift truck. A typical Align Production Systems changer has two side-by-side positions that can transport two molds. Once the change is complete, the mold can be moved off the line and stored in a remote location or taken to the tool room for maintenance.

The Quick Mold-Change System is uniquely versatile in that it can be used with mold storage, pre-stage, preheat and racks. It can also be configured to change from operator or non-operator sides.
