MUD Quick-Change Adapter Frame Systems Make Standard Mold Bases More Productive
Standard mold bases can be interchanged in less than ten minutes with MUD's Quick-Change Adapter Style Frame System. It's the most economical quick change system available and it works with any standard mold base in any molding machine up to 500-ton capacity.
The system is based on a Master Unit Die frame that remains in the molding machine during production changeovers. The frame is installed without modifying the machine. Standard mold bases equipped with companion ear plates are interchanged within this adapter frame.
Just one adapter frame accommodates an unlimited number of standard mold bases. While these frames can remain in the machine indefinitely, they are easily transferred to other machines. No other special mounting hardware is required.
The MUD Quick-Change system is based on the unique slide and clamp approach to mold changeovers developed by Master Unit Die Products. Standard mold bases equipped with MUD ear plate sets simply slide in and out of the Quick-Change adapter frame. Just one MUD adapter frame is needed for each molding machine selected for Quick-Change operation.
Installation is fast. Simply clamp the Quick-Change adapter frame to the platens of any molding machine selected for Quick-Change operation. Companion ear plates are bolted to the standard mold bases to be interchanged in the machine. Both the machine and the standard mold bases are ready for production changeovers in less than ten minutes.
MUD Quick-Change adapter frames and companion ear plates are available in six standard sizes. Each accommodates a wide range of standard mold bases. Selecting the larges adapter frame that fits a molding machine allows interchanging standard mold bases up to the machine's maximum capacity.
