Customers Asked, DME Answers - MUD Quick-Change Systems Line Expanded

Same-day delivery on 99 different product options means reduced downtime for customers

Madison Heights, Mich. – In direct response to customer feedback, DME Company, a leading manufacturer of mold technologies, has expanded its line of MUD Quick-ChangeTM Systems with parts in stock and ready to ship throughout the U.S. DME now offer same-day delivery on 99 different insert options, including standard and laminated.

“Lightning-fast changeover speed is a major benefit of using a Master Unit Die (MUD) Quick-Change system – unless you’re waiting days for your new mold inserts to arrive,” said Doug Miller, DME Business Manager. “By offering more products with same-day delivery, we can help customers avoid much of that downtime.”

Quick-Change systems offer significant time-saving advantages at every step in the manufacturing process – from tooling lead time and cost to production and inventory control.

In many applications, MUD provides faster initial mold setup, quicker changeovers and lower material and fabrication costs. Featuring companion insert molds that can be switched easily, MUD cuts tooling downtime by up to 75 percent and total tooling costs by up to 66 percent.

Benefits of DME Quick-Change Systems include:

  • Changeovers by one person in less than 5 minutes.

  • No special equipment needed.

  • Downtime dramatically reduced.

  • Labor costs cut

MUD also allows unlimited design latitude. Insert molds can be engineered for parts requiring stripper plates, sleeve ejection, single or double cam action, hydraulic, mechanical or pneumatic cylinders – or virtually any feature desired, including three-and four-plate designs.
