DME MUD Quick Change
Quick-change frames and companion insert molds accelerate production changeovers and lower tooling costs.
The Master Unit Die Quick-Change (MUD) System is designed to overcome the challenges of increasing productivity and decreasing costs. MUD Quick-Change Systems are more frequently becoming a part of the operational strategies of many companies who employ lean manufacturing programs because MUD systems are proven to deliver increased uptime and reduced costs. Most changeovers take less than five minutes, require no special equipment and can be made by one person. The MUD quick-change approach to tooling reduces downtime by as much as 75%, and lowers the initial cost of new tooling by as much as 66%. The combined benefits of reduced production downtime, lower labor costs and minimized tooling expense often results in a significant improvement in profit margin.
