Die cutting tolerances

Adjustable height platforms

Anyone have experience with adjustable height platforms for operators at presses? We have a wide range of heights we need to accommodate to make our operations more ergonomic. We would like the up/down adjustment to be easy and quick.

Mold Change Cart

Is anyone using a mold change system that they really like? We are looking to reduce the strain on our setup people by having the mold change system do the push/pull of the mold into and out of the press.
