The MUD Quick-Change ™ Concept

A cost-effective approach to injection molding

This Master Unit Die Quick-Change Concept was developed to meet the parallel challenges of increasing productivity and decreasing costs. MUD Quick-Change Systems are more frequently becoming a part of the operational strategies for many companies who employ lean manufacturing programs because MUD systems are proven to deliver increased uptime and reduced costs. The tooling approach to injection molding presented in this catalog offers mold makers and plastics manufacturers a number of competitive advantages. These include lower tooling costs and faster production changeovers. The remarkable flexibility this approach offers makes it ideal for just-in-time scheduling. Faster production changeovers and lower tooling costs The Master Unit Die Quick-Change system approach is based on an unlimited number of companion insert molds easily interchanged within a single MUD Quick-Change frame. The frame remains in the molding machine during these mold changeovers. Most changeovers take less than five minutes, require no special equipment and can be made by one person. Simply loosen four clamps, disconnect any heating or cooling lines and slide the insert mold from the Quick-Change frame. Then slide in the replacement, reconnect the lines and reclamp. The new insert mold is now ready for production. This approach to tooling reduces downtime as much as 75 percent. Related labor costs are reduced even more since the need for a second person to assist in the mold change is also eliminated. The initial cost for new tooling is also reduced as much as 66 percent. This is because only the companion insert mold is replaced to produce a new part. It is not necessary to replace an entire standard mold base. Associated labor costs are lowered because insert molds are much easier to handle than larger, heavier standard mold bases. This combination of reduced production downtime, reduced labor cost and reduced tooling expense can result in a significant improvement in profit margins. Reduces downtime by as much as 75 percent. Reduces initial cost by as much as 66 percent.

Quick-Change frames and companion insert molds

Three Quick-Change frame series The MUD Quick-Change Concept is available in three frame series and in sizes for the smallest air-operated machines to models for 500-ton machines. The MUD U frame series offers the most design flexibility and accepts both standard and T-style companion insert molds. H frame and Double H frame models offer simultaneous molding with two and four standard style companion insert molds. The benefits of both Quick-Change tooling and hot runner molding can be combined with the addition of a manifold to MUD H and Double H . frame models. All Quick-Change frames are precision made to exacting tolerances and are easily matched to the specifications of individual machines. Each is engineered for extra strength and rigidity and is designed for maximum molding flexibility. Two companion insert mold series Master Unit Die companion insert molds for Quick-Change frames offer . designers and mold makers exceptional application flexibility. Each is available in a variety of steels and is interchangeable within matching frames. The insert mold includes the cavity and core plates with leader pins and bushings installed and the ejector plates. Since this insert assembly is all that’s needed to produce new parts, tooling costs are reduced significantly.

Quick-Change U Frame

Standard Style Insert Molds offer maximum economy and are available in solid or laminated construction including three- and four-plate designs. Options and features include stripper plate, sleeve ejection and other special applica- tions designed to meet virtually all injection . molding needs. See U frame, H frame and . Double H frame sections for details. T-Style Insert Molds offer the maximum projected mold area and are available in . laminated construction including three- and . four-plate designs. Smaller models are also . available in solid construction. Options and . features include stripper plates, sleeve ejection and other special applications. See U frame . section for details.

Advantages of the MUD Concept

Quick-Change tooling offers you advantages at every step in the manufacturing process—from tooling lead time and cost to production and inventory control. Quicker Delivery New tooling orders require less lead time because only a companion insert . mold is required, not an entire standard mold base. This results in less time required for machining. Also, standard insert molds are usually shipped . immediately from stock, seldom require more than seven to ten working days. Lower Tooling Costs Since only an insert mold is needed for new, standby or replacement tooling, . the cost is less for both material and fabrication. Costs are reduced as much . as 66 percent. Another cost reduction feature is the use of spacer bars in . larger frames. These permit the use of smaller, less expensive insert molds. Faster Initial Mold Setup The MUD Quick-Change frame stays in the molding machine. Initial setup is . simply a matter of sliding the insert mold in, then clamping it and connecting . the heating or cooling lines. Maximum High Volume Production H frames and Double H frames offer special advantages for high volume . production. Multiple insert molds permit doubling (H frame) or quadrupling (Double H frame) quantities each cycle. Production is virtually uninterrupted during maintenance or repair by using quickly installed backup insert molds. Quicker Production Changeovers Just loosen four clamps, disconnect heating or cooling lines and slide the insert mold from the Quick-Change frame. Then slide in the replacement, reclamp, . and reconnect the lines. Most changeovers require less than five minutes. Minimum Purging Because MUD insert molds can be interchanged in moments, the machine . cylinder is not likely to require purging due to overheating. Both raw material and production time are saved. Easier Maintenance and Repair MUD insert molds are faster to remove and reinstall than standard mold bases. They are also much lighter and smaller. This means scheduled preventative maintenance is much easier to perform. There is also less downtime if the . insert mold is ever removed for modification or repair. If the insert mold must . be out for a long period, a replacement can be easily installed and the machine back in production within five minutes. Convenient Storage Since the MUD Quick-Change frame stays in the machine, only the companion insert mold needs to be stored. Their lighter weight and smaller size means . easier handling. Most models can be stored on bookcase-type shelves.

Maximize your production volume and minimize your downtime with our Quick-Change ™ insert molds.

Production Flexibility MUD Quick-Change H and Double H frames are designed for simultaneous molding with two or more companion insert molds. These insert molds can be interchanged independently. When single insert mold production is scheduled, blank insert molds are easily installed. Duplicate insert molds can be installed when greater volume of a part is required. Design Versatility MUD companion insert molds are available in T-style and standard style and in solid and laminated construction. Design latitude is unlimited. Insert molds can be engineered for parts requiring stripper plates, sleeve ejection, single or . double cam action, hydraulic, mechanical or pneumatic cylinders—virtually any feature desired including three- and four-plate designs.

Customized and versatile , MUD insert molds meet. your specific . production needs.

Applications

Prototypes and Samples Faster setup and startup means the Master Unit Die Concept is ideal for this type of application. Even more important, engineering changes involve only the companion insert mold, not an entire standard mold base. This keeps sample and experimental tooling time and cost to an absolute minimum. Aluminum Insert Molds The thermal conductivity of available aluminum insert molds approaches four times that of steel for even faster cycling times. These lightweight insert molds are also easy to handle and can be machined at high speeds. See pages UF 18, UF 20 and UF 21. Short Production Runs MUD insert molds offer unparalleled advantages when a variety of parts must be produced in a short time period, a major plus for just-in-time scheduling. Literally hours of production time are gained by these fast changeovers, often eliminating the need for overtime. The lower cost of these insert molds also makes duplicate tooling attractive insurance for meeting critical deadlines. High Volume Production The simultaneous molding of parts in multi-section frames is one of the major Quick-Change advantages in increasing productivity. So is the lower cost of backup insert molds. Another advantage is the ease and speed of installing insert molds since this almost eliminates production downtime. And since all molds require some maintenance, this time gained in removing and installing insert molds has added significance. MUD Quick-Change frames and compan- ion insert molds are also constructed with the precision, the strength and the reliability to meet the demands of high volume production.

The MUD Quick-Change™ Concept Standard Mold Bases

MUD Adapter Frame System permits production changeovers in less than ten minutes Standard mold bases can now be interchanged in less than ten minutes with MUD’s Quick-Change adapter system. It’s an approach that works with any standard mold base in any molding machine up to 500-ton capacity. It’s also the most economical Quick-Change available. The system is based on a Master Unit Die adapter frame that remains in the molding machine during production changeovers. The frame is installed without modifying the machine. Standard mold bases equipped with companion ear plates are interchanged within this adapter frame. Just one adapter frame accommodates an unlimited number of . standard mold bases. These frames are easily transferred to other machines since no other special mounting hardware is required. . The system is based on the unique slide and clamp approach to mold changeovers developed by Master Unit Die. Standard mold bases equipped with MUD ear plate sets simply slide in and out of the . Quick-Change adapter frame. See Adapter Frames section. Adapter Frame System Options MUD Balancing Lift Bar These slide and lock bars allow standard mold bases to be easily . lowered in and raised out of the molding machine. See page AF 103. Quick Coupler Locking KO Rod System This optional knockout assembly permits locking the mold ejector . system to the machine’s hydraulic KO system with a simple push . and turn action. See page AF 102.

Each party agrees to maintain the other party’s Confidential Information in confidence, to not disclose the same to any third parties, and to use it only in connection with this sale. These restrictions shall expire two (2) years after the date of disclosure. This provision does not modify or supersede any separate confidentiality or nondisclosure contract signed by the parties. 10.

MERGER CLAUSE: This Contract entirely supersedes any prior oral or written representations, correspondence, proposals, or contracts between the parties regarding the products. This writing constitutes the final and total expression of such contract between the parties, and it is a complete and exclusive statement of the terms of that contract. 12. ASSIGNMENT: Neither party may assign this Contract without the written consent of the other party, except that Seller may assign this Contract to a third party that acquires substantially all of Seller’s assets and Seller may assign the flow of funds arising out of this Contract. 13.

GOVERNING LAW: This Contract shall be governed by and construed in accor- dance with the laws of the State of Michigan, without regard to the Convention for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), which shall not apply.

1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS: Seller’s offer is expressly conditioned upon Buyer’s acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, and Seller expressly objects to any additional or different terms proposed by Buyer. Any subsequent purchase order issued by Buyer shall constitute Buyer’s agree- ment to these Terms and Conditions. Any contrary terms and conditions contained in any purchase order, facility entry form, or other instrument issued by the Buyer are expressly rejected and shall not apply to this transaction. Unless otherwise specified in the quotation, Seller’s quota- tion shall expire 30 days from its date and may be modified or withdrawn by Seller before receipt of Buyer’s conforming purchase order. 2. PAYMENT TERMS: Payment is due in accordance with any applicable progress, advance or other agreed upon payment schedule, or, if no such schedule has been agreed to, no later than 30 days from the date of invoice. Buyer shall pay a late payment charge computed at the lower of 1.5% per month on any overdue balance, or the maximum rate permitted by law. No cash discount is provided. If at any time Seller reasonably de- termines that Buyer’s financial condition or payment history does not jus- tify continuation of Seller’s performance, Seller shall be entitled to require full or partial payment in advance or otherwise restructure payments, request additional forms of payment security, suspend its performance or terminate the order. 3.

Unless otherwise agreed, Buyer shall pay all packing and delivery costs. 3.2. Seller’s quoted lead times and targeted delivery dates are good faith estimates and are not binding on Seller. Buyer’s acceptance of delivery of Seller’s products from the carrier shall constitute a waiver of any claim for delay. If Seller notifies Buyer that the products are ready for shipment and Buyer delays delivery, then Seller may charge Buyer a storage fee equal to 1.5% of the contract price per month for each month of delay. Such stor- age fees are in addition to any other remedies Seller may have. 3.3. Buyer shall have a reasonable opportunity to inspect any products prior to shipment. Products shall be deemed to be accepted upon the earlier of: (i) inspection at Seller’s plant (provided that no reasonable ob- jection is then raised by Buyer), or (ii) if no inspection is requested, then at shipment.

Quick-Change U frame features and applications

This MUD Quick-Change frame and companion insert mold series com- bines the cost saving benefits and time saving advantages of the Master Unit Die Concept with exceptional design flexibility. U frames accept two types of companion insert molds — the standard style (inside frame width) and T-style (outside frame width) companion insert molds. These can be ordered in any thickness in which the frame and insert stack height do not exceed the minimum or maximum shut height of the machine. The frame’s open design permits installation of water lines or hydraulic cylinders on any side of the insert mold. Options include insulation boards, master ejector plates and master ejector plates with interlocking rails. MUD Quick-Change U frames can be adapted to multiple insert mold applications with the addition of an optional removable center runner bar and master ejector plate. This allows simultaneous production with two smaller insert molds in either the T-style or standard style. Other U frame series cost reduction options include frame spacer bars and adapter rails. Spacer bars permit the use of shorter and lower cost companion insert molds in frames designed for longer sizes. Adapter rails permit the use of narrower and lower cost insert molds in frames designed for wider sizes.

Quick-Change U frame options n Removable center runner bars for two-insert mold applications n Master ejector plates n Master ejector plates with interlocking rails n Frame spacer bars n Adapter rails n Hot sprue bushings n Insulation boards n Additional height on ejector rails n Coating options n Electroless nickel plating

Steel Specifications: Standard U frames are produced in prehard steel (285-325 Brinell). Prehard stainless, 420 stainless, H-13 and other grades are available on request. Frame coatings can be specified. Guide rails on larger frames are treated for enhanced wear resistance.

NOTE: Specifications subject to change without prior notice.

Companion insert mold features and applications

The two companion insert mold styles available with the Quick-Change U frame increase the exceptional design flexibility of this series. A wide range of options adds to this versatility. The result is the most versatile injection molding tooling offered to the industry. T-style insert molds offer the maximum projected mold area and are available in laminated construction including three- and four-plate designs. Smaller sizes are available in either solid or laminated construction. Standard insert molds are the most economical style and are recommended when the additional width of the T-style is not required. Standard insert molds are available in solid or laminated construction including three- and four-plate designs. Both style insert molds can be ordered with a complete ejector system including return pins and pillar posts. Other options include stripper plates, sleeve ejection and three-plate construction for a pinpoint gating system. Machining for heater cartridge holes, water lines, rough or finished pockets, taper locks and other special applications is also available. As noted, the open design of the U frame permits installation of water lines or hydraulic cylinders on any side of the insert molds. Design options for insert molds include spring loading, early return, unscrewing mechanisms, hot sprue bushings, hot runner molding and machining for cam slides. Insert molds can be ordered with interlocking ejector plates for positive return and stroking action when used with frames having an interlocking ejector system.
