The market of precision injection molding is highly competitive while with lower margin. Plastic products nowadays are of shorter lifespan, yet manufactured in small volume but large variety under rigid quality standard. Therefore, manufacturers seek productive automation to cut the cost, improve the overall equipment effectiveness, and perfect the injection quality in order to make more profit in the market.
President Hsiao of Forwell is with more than 30 years in the sector of quick mold change system, stated that the importation of QMCS can shorten mold-change time in a significant scale and can lift the overall equipment effectiveness. Moreover, he stated that, it can also satisfy the small-volume-but-large-variety manufacture model; thus with QMCS the stock reserves can be lesser, item quality can be better, mold lifetime can be longer. The system can also help reduce manpower cost as well as occupational injury rate, achieving better overall productivity and management.
Hsiao shared that the QMCS for injection molding machines utilizes air pressure to activate hydraulic pressure, and modify the valve pressure ratio by the air. This design, when power failure occurs or air pressure is lost due to technical issues, the hydraulic pressure stay still for a long period of time. This air-hydraulic mechanism, is energy saving, safe, economic, and convenient for users, and can prolong the lifetime of molds, realizing the goal of high quality.
The latest QMCS carts are with different types. One is the “One for all” and the other “Semi-automatic” types. The former can achieve automatic transmission of loading and unloading and the later semi-automatic loading and unloading movements. These types of carts, can deal with large molds ranging from 3 to 15 tons, processing loading, unloading, positioning, and clamping in automatic manner.
The cart system is three times cheaper compared to Japanese competitors. The price is competitive and highly acceptable on the market, easily realizing safer, quicker, and productive mold change process.
Forwell offers educational course for manufacturers who pursue the system, together with facility estimation, construction, trial operation services.
