Milacron Inc. of Cincinnati is making available the option of magnetic quick-mold-change systems through a relationship with Tecnomagnete Inc. of Sterling Heights, Mich.
Milacron officials announced the option during Plastics Encounter Southeast, held Oct. 18-21 in Charlotte.
Milacron can add Tecnomagnete's Quad-Press Quick Mold Clamping System to its injection molding machines, officials said, usable on vertical or horizontal presses and with standard or multishot revolving plate molds.
Bob Strickley, Milacron's marketing director, said the system allows for molds weighing tons to be changed in minutes.
Quad-Press is available on all sizes of Milacron's machines, including Roboshot, Powerline, Maxima, Magna Toggle, Magna Vertical and Ferromatik Milacron K-Tec machines, Strickley said.
