Forwell has been a pioneer of Quick Mold Change Systems for many years. With over 20 years of experience in developing these systems they can offer you the best for your molding operations. These fully customizable Quick Mold Change Systems drastically minimize setup times, maximize efficiency and increase safety.
Forwell’s Quick Mold Change System can be designed to fit almost any injection molding machine and mold casting machine to allow for quicker mold change times, resulting in shorter machine down time and increased productivity. This system uses a special mold clamp that does not require a cut out on the mold, increasing its application versatility and allowing it to be used with a large number of different molds.
Quick Mold Change Systems can rapidly transform your workshop, allowing for easy changeover for small batches, reduced labor costs and reduced stock holding. Coupling this system with a Mold Cart System will allow for fully automatic mold changing, further increasing the efficiency and productivity of your manufacturing operations.
hen installing a Quick Mold Change System for your injection molding and mold casting operations there are a number of direct and indirect benefits. Review the following table to see an overview of all of these benefits.
|Direct Benefits||Indirect Benefits|
|Reduction in Die Change Time||Die Standardization|
|Efficient Small Batch Runs||Press Standardization|
|Reduced Stock Handling||Increased Safety|
|Higher Productivity and Quality||Improved Working Environment|
|Reduction in Labor Costs||Increased Competitiveness|
There are a number of available options for the Quick Mold Change System so be sure to choose the correct pump model and mold clamps that best suit your injection molding and mold casting operations.
Horizontal Mold Configuration
When molds are fitted horizontally, Forwell’s Mold Cart System can be used for safe and efficient mold changing operations. With quick and efficient mold changing your whole workshop will benefit from increased productivity, safer operations and reduced labor costs.
Vertical Mold Configuration
Molds used for Mold Injection Machines and Mold Casting Machines are most commonly fitted vertically. Forwell’s Quick Mold Change System can effectively change these molds quickly and efficiently, thus decreasing idle machine time and streamlining production management.
Forwell can design the most practical and efficient Quick Die Change System according to your plant layout and equipment. To further improve the efficiency of your mold changes, this system can be paired with Forwell’s Mold Cart System to create a fully automatic mold change system for your plastic injection production lines. When establishing a new production facility, please contact Forwell directly to see how beneficial a Quick Mold Change System and Mold Cart System can be for enhancing your productivity. Below you can see the different layout configurations possible when combining Forwell’s Quick Mold Change System with Forwell’s Mold Cart System:
Mold Cart System with a 2-mold cart for quick and automatic horizontal loading of molds.
Mold Cart System with a single mold for quick and easy loading of molds.
Mold Cart System that loads molds for machines positioned either side of the cart.
Machines are facing opposite directions
Machines are facing the same direction
Mold changes are performed using a 2-mold cart that serves two or more injection molding machines that are positioned along one line. This allows for a wide application of quick mold changing.
