FasTie® Components

 

Description & Use
In an injection molding press, the FasTie® system quickly ties in the mold ejector plate to the press ejection system, dramatically reducing mold change time. The greatest time savings are realized in presses where space is limited and the ejector system is difficult to tie in using solid knock-out bars.


The FasTie® coupler is permanently mounted to the press ejector plate. The quick-connect locking mechanism in the coupler snaps mechanically onto the mold-mounted stud during mold installation.


To release the ejectors, apply shop air to the coupler. The coupler opens to release the stud, disconnecting the press and tooling ejector plates. The coupler remains in the open position, ready for a new mold to be set.


For multiple ejector locations, an air manifold is recommended to release all couplers simultaneously.

 

Two FasTie® sizes are available: 1-inch model for presses 500 tons and under and 2-inch model for presses larger than 500 tons.




Accessories
The FasTie® system features additional parts to aid installation and use. These accessories can be used in combination to accommodate your specific press and mold applications. Different thread sizes are available to suit most presses and molds.


  • SPEEDBAR Adjustable Length Ejector Bars*
  • Fixed Length Blank Ejector Bars
  • Center Knockout Adapters
  • Center Knockout Bars
