• High precision die or mold placement
• Increased safety and efficiency
• Can serve multiple production lines at once
• Multiple layout configurations
Forwell’s Die Cart / Mold Cart System provides automatic die or mold changes for a range of different machines, such as plastic injection molding machines, plastic extrusion machines and press machines. This Die Cart / Mold Cart system offers very fast, efficient and safe die and mold changes, using an advanced cart on rails system.
Conventional die or mold changes can often take over an hour, but with the Die / Mold Cart System, die or mold changes are automatically completed in just a fraction of the time. Using this system, all procedures from die transfer and changing, to positioning and clamping is carried out by this system, resulting in extremely accurate die or mold changes. As the Die / Mold Cart System offers very precise die or mold changes, many operational issues can be avoided such as locking screws breaking when hand tightened, and incorrect mold alignment resulting in damage to the mold or production equipment.
The Die / Mold Cart System also massively increases safety and efficiency, by allowing for automatic operations and making it feasible to perform many small batch production runs. Another great feature of this system is that it can be configured to specific user needs, different production facilities and serve multiple production lines at once.
- Large work table size (with fixed hold)
- Automatic mold opening adjustment (just input die)
- thickness parameter and machine will automatically adjust)
- Machine safety door size adjuster
- Die locating slot/mold platen chamfer
- Fixed platen for mold pulling

DIE CART SYSTEM LAYOUTS
Depending on whether you require a Cart System for a Punch Press or Injection Molding Machine multiple different Cart Layouts are possible. To see which different Cart Layouts are available please first select for which type of machining operation you require a Cart System. Remember Forwell can custom build a Cart System to fit your machining requirements, whether it be for a single machine or for a whole production line.
See below for different examples of Cart System Layouts for Mechanical and Hydraulic Type Punch Presses.
TWO DIES ON MOVING CART
Die Cart System with a 2-die cart for quick and automatic horizontal loading of dies.
Parallel Machine Cart Layout
Die changes are performed using a 2-die cart that serves two or more presses that are positioned along one line. This allows for a wide application of quick die changing.
Bidirectional Moving Cart LayoutSimultaneous 2-die change operation using two carts either side of the press. This layout allows for the fastest possible die change time.
MOLD CART SYSTEM LAYOUTS
Forwell can design the most practical and efficient Quick Die Change System according to your plant layout and equipment. To further improve the efficiency of your mold changes, this system can be paired with Forwell’s Mold Cart System to create a fully automatic mold change system for your plastic injection production lines. When establishing a new production facility, please contact Forwell directly to see how beneficial a Quick Mold Change System and Mold Cart System can be for enhancing your productivity. Below you can see the different layout configurations possible when combining Forwell’s Quick Mold Change System with Forwell’s Mold Cart System:
Two Molds on a Moving Cart
Mold Cart System with a 2-mold cart for quick and automatic horizontal loading of molds.
Single Mold on a Fixed Cart
Mold Cart System with a single mold for quick and easy loading of molds.
Double Sided Cart LayoutMold Cart System that loads molds for machines positioned either side of the cart.
Machines are facing opposite directions
Machines are facing the same direction
Parallel Machine Sided Cart LayoutMold changes are performed using a 2-mold cart that serves two or more injection molding machines that are positioned along one line. This allows for a wide application of quick mold changing.
