  • Mundimold partners Krauss Maffei, EAS and others to present a quick mold change system for the GX900 machine at K 2013.

This fully automated quick-change system delivers 6,000 hours of production and mold changes in less than three minutes. As demonstrated at the K fair, joint efforts lead to the best results.

Mundimold took part with two agricultural crate molds, one a monoblock design measuring 500x300x160 mm and the other a grape box measuring 500x400x130, and achieved the fastest cycle times with the robot: 9.9 seconds for the monoblock crate and 6.7 seconds for the grape box.

The EAS system makes it possible to change a mold in 2.5 minutes. The system consists of:
• A built-in preheating station
• An electrically powered roller conveyor
• An automatic multi-coupling system that prevents leakage
• A state-of-the-art magnetic clamping device
