Shorter set-up times and greater productivity achieved by QUICK die change from HILMA. The M-TECS product line applying the magnetic clamping technique, which has been known for a number of years, represents the highest level of quick die clamping. To our customers this yields the following critical benefits:
·no die standardisation required ·a clamping time of 3 seconds, which drastically reduces set-up times ·greater competitiveness, even in the case of small batches ·enhanced just-in-time ability ·fewer operators required ·rapid and safe clamping even of dies with temperatures of up to 240°C.
The magnetic clamping plates are suitable for all injection moulding machines, presses and trans-fer moulding presses used in the plastics and rubber industries. The clamping systems are de-signed for temperatures of up to 240°C, which is unique in this industry. By combining the clamping technique with die carts, coupling technique and a preheating station, dies with a temperature of 240°C and with a weight of several tons can be clamped ready for production and unclamped by one single operator in less than 30 minutes. The magnetic clamp-ing plates are suitable for vertical and horizontal machines and for any size and shape of die.
