THE EASILY ACCESSIBLE MOLD CARRIER
This mold carrier has been developed specifically for processes requiring ease of access to lower tools with large surface areas (e.g., PUR introduction into the open tool, insertion and removal of wide components, etc.). The lower tool can drive to several stations, whereat each one station is provided for operating the lower and upper tool halves. The production of glass fiber PUR components is a frequent case of application .
The lower tool is mounted on the shuttle wagon that is moved in andout by electric motor. The upper tool is attached on the upper clamping platen, which can be swung out towards the operator forimproved operability.
In the clamping process, the lower tool moves under the upper tool.The two clamping surfaces are interconnected using a pin locking system. Clamping force is applied by a hydraulic cylinder.
High clamping forces
Access to the lower tool from three sides and free accessibility from above
Both tool halves can be operated simultaneously
Creation of different process stations
Simple tool replacement by retracting the entire tool
