ORLANDO, FLA., (April 5, 6 p.m. ET) — Die-Sep (Booth 61059) said its custom-built mode separation and tipping machines can pay for themselves within 12 months.

Opening the mold within the machine’s frame is done by means of magnets which connect with the mold’s platens, whereupon hydraulics open, tip and close the molds “effortlessly”, according to the Burlington, Wis.-based company.

Die-Sep’s Louis Bowler said the machines make mold rooms safer and make the job of attending to problems within a mold much more straightforward.

“With this kit you can open, tip and close a standard mold in three minutes. Larger molds may take up to five minutes,” he said.

The machines can cater for stack molds and eliminate mold jamming and tipping hazards. Space in a tool room can also be saved by using the device’s table top as a work bench.

The company has sold nearly 100 machines and customers include Nypro, Canon, 3M and ITW, Bowler said.
