Mould Closing ‘EASY-CLOSE’
The Mould Closing EASY-CLOSE is a bespoke device that makes it possible to close moulds (cope & drag) that are not properly designed for closing. This is because the machine is designed to enable the operator to have manual input at the last stage of the process. However, provided that the mould pattern is properly designed at the first stage of the pattern, then it is possible to close the mould in a fully automatic cycle if required.
The system can be offered for a wide variety of moulds sizes, contact FMS to see if the EASY-CLOSE is suitable for your application
