About EAS

EAS Company Profile

Actively involved in the day-to-day running of the EAS business, advising clients and providing value-added solutions, founders Harm Nijzink, Hero Marggrander and Cliff Drake were also responsible for the development of key processes and inventions that help companies implement time- and cost saving mold and die change solutions. Innovative products involving single-minute exchange of die (SMED) applications on a worldwide scale.
In the fall of 2015, the EAS ‘founding fathers’, after years of working together with the new generation, decided to hand over their corporate responsibilities.

Achieve more with less

Since 1985, EAS change systems plays a worldwide leading role in cost reduction with factory automation solutions.

Everything from one source

EAS is the originator of QMC applications in Europe. From 1985 onwards, EAS has been at the forefront of all developments for SMED applications in the plastics industry.
EAS was the first on the European market to design and sell hydraulic clamping for injection molding machines.
We initiated the application of automatic multi-couplers on this market. And we introduced the first applications of magnetic clamping for injection molding. Then we pioneered the use of mold change cars and tables for the European market.
Simultaneously, by combining our expertise in all these disciplines we could offer integrated solutions. And to this day, we continue to provide our customers with the best solutions, integrating our extended knowledge into large turnkey projects around the globe.

No change, no progress

Innovation is a key driver at EAS with 33% of all engineering staff dedicated to R&D. This enables EAS to continuously deliver state of the art solutions to its global customer base.
This allows the highly experienced project management department to provide fitting solutions to any QMC project for smaller companies to globally active multinationals.
The expertise in project management for SMED solutions has allowed EAS to rapidly expand into the QDC field with 200% growth year on end for the last 3 years in metal stamping and forming applications.

The rewards of working together

With production facilities across three continents and an installation and distribution network across the globe EAS brings European design and engineering quality to local markets. Our global salesforce combined with our extensive network of distributors caters to your specific needs applying 30 years’ worth of experience to local market and production conditions.

We have a worldwide reputation for innovative excellence in Quick Mold Change (QMC) and Quick Die Change (QDC) technology. With our high quality mono- and multi couplers a diversity of branches is served.
