Mold changes by conventional manual clamping may take up to half an hour, or even several hours if heating in the press is required. The quick action of magnetic and hydraulic clamping systems from ROEMHELD allows for positioning, clamping, and loosening of a mold even when hot to be changed in just a few minutes. If mold tempering is required, the change may be completed by a single person in less than 30 minutes. This saving of time allows for an increase in machine productivity and quality processing, since the steady clamping forces provide a uniform thermal distribution, therefore giving optimum rubber products.
