Die-Sep Mini mold separators are available in a number of configurations for small molds ranging from 6" × 6" × 6" to 24" × 24" × 30" and weighing as much as 3,000 lbs. The company also is building its first “Intermediate” model, which will be able to separate molds as wide as 36" and weighing as much as 4,000 lbs.

Any of the Mini separators can be built with features for just splitting molds, tipping one or both halves, or even hydraulically pulling and setting cores. The units function much the same as the larger Die-Seps in that electromagnets are embedded in the platens. When a mold is sandwiched between those platens and the magnets are engaged, it is effectively “mounted,” and the hydraulically activated platens can then easily separate the mold. The Mini and Intermediate models can be built with one or both platens capable of tipping mold halves into a horizontal position. The ability to position the parting line vertically or horizontally gives the toolroom technician the option of pulling plates or changing inserts with the mold oriented as to his or her choosing. It also eases other tasks such as cleaning, pulling plates and opening a mold for viewing.

The entire cycle of opening, tipping up both halves, tipping down the halves and closing the mold can be accomplished in less than two minutes, the company says.
