Inspecting and maintaining a mold can be an arduous task. The mold needs to be handled gently in order to avoid damage. The quality of the production depends largely on the quality of the mold, making it often the most important tool in your production process.
That is why an inspection unit is an excellent investment. It helps to simplify the maintenance of your molds, and makes repair, cleaning and preparation for use easier than ever. This will not only reduce your production costs but also enable you to react flexibly to new orders without losing valuable production time for time-consuming tooling up or changing molds.
With a well-maintained mold, which is kept in the best possible condition, you will not only get the best quality and longevity of the mold itself, but you will also achieve the shortest downtimes and safest turnovers. EAS offers a wide range of mold care solutions, in which the Optim inspection units play a major role, for molds ranging anywhere from 1,500 up to 6,000 kilograms.
Optim inspection units are very easy to operate. They offer one fixed and one movable platen and allow for a 360° rotation of the movable platen. Positions can be locked to increase safety and brackets are available in three different versions: magnetic, mechanic and forged. Depending on the maximum weight of the mold and for each specific set up, EAS will help find the best solution.
Molds can be opened and closed in only a few seconds and all parts of the molds can be reached. So the advantages are not only found in the costs saved in reducing changeover time and improving longevity, they also include the reduction of the labor costs associated with tooling up.
