Quick Mold & Die Changers

Air Bearing Equipment | Quick Mold & Die Changers

Change-It™ Mold Changers turn potentially dangerous tasks into safe operations. By using ergonomic technology, Change-ItTM reinforces human strengths with mechanical operations. Change-ItTM benefits include: change mold/dies in less than 20 minutes, allow for "hands off" operation, protect against equipment damage, eliminate fatigue, and remove dangerous conditions caused by other mold changing methods. We can configure for single or multiple mold capacity with no mold weight limitations.

Airfloat/HSI Systems specializes in meeting the customers specific needs. Change-ItTM offers various options including: manual or automated controls; design capabilities for molds with standardized subplate; air bearings, wheels, and rails; and press set-up for side mold changing. Our engineers will interface with your staff, providing you with computer aided design including dimensional data & layouts. This can transform a monumental task into a much simpler, quicker form.
