Mold Craft, Inc. (Willernie, MN) offers a concept in mold design called Quick Change that was designed to allow for flexible productivity at reduced tooling costs. The design innovation provides faster production changeovers reducing press downtime at a fraction of the cost of multiple molds.

The Quick Change mold base is full hard 420 stainless steel with water cooling in each plate. The proprietary 2 stage ejector system is activated through the standard ejector cycle to strip and eject the parts and runners. All components are full hard including gibs and wear plates for long lasting production. The runner shut off feature allows 1 or 2 Quick Change Inserts to run simultaneously. The Quick Change Cavity Set is also full hard, water cooled, 420 stainless steel with a self contained ejector system. The precision parting line guide pins and bushings reduce "A" side to "B" side mismatch within .0002". To complement our 2 stage, stripper system, we also offer a Quick Change System with standard ejection built with the same production quality.

Applications include short production runs of multiple parts where the Quick Change Cavity Sets can be quickly and easily replaced. This concept will allow for gained production time, less press downtime, lower labor costs and reduced tooling costs.
