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.
