Quick Die Change
The Hilma division of Carr Lane Roemheld is a worldwide market leader in quick die change systems and products. Hilma offers a full range of die clamping and handling systems in the industry for applications with mechanical presses, hydraulic presses, forging presses, injection molding machines and die cast machines. In recent years, to survive in today’s competitive worldwide market, manufacturers are reducing inventory costs by running smaller batch sizes and making shorter production runs. One way to maximize press uptime in an environment like this is to implement faster more effective die changes.
Hydraulic clamping elements, which are installed in a fixed position, e.g. on press beds of machines. Compact and well-proved clamping elements with maximum clamping forces, e.g. wedge clamps, clamping bars, double-T bars, spring clamping cylinders, extending clamps, wedge swing clamps, pivot and pull clamps.

Hydraulic clamping elements, which are positioned by moving them in T-slots provided on the press/machine. Ideal for retrofitting without the need to standardise die widths. For example hollow piston cylinders, sliding clamps, clamping systems and pusher chains, adjusting spindles or pneumatic cylinders.See Products.
