In general the
term “tooling” is used to describe the parts required to produce
a particular component and comprises the mould assembly which corresponds
to the size and shape of the finished product, the die assembly
which is attached to the ram, the ejector assembly which is attached
to the ejector ram and finally the vacuum plate assembly which is
attached to the take off carriage. The product is then placed on
a tilt table, rotated through 90° and edge stacked onto a pallet.
Tooling is available
for a wide range of standard products and they can also be provided
for special requirements. Generally all tooling units are interchangeable
between single mould and three mould presses. When a range of similar
products is required, many of the tooling components are common
to more than one product.
