Automotive OEMs as well as 2nd tier suppliers require the most efficient operations to meet production goals. Automotive manufacturers must practice continual improvement in all processes such as reducing production cycle times and time in changing dies. Single-minute exchange of die (SMED) is a method of lean production used in manufacturing to quickly changeover dies to run the next project, thus reducing waste. Stucchi helps automotive manufacturers to meet SMED goals with multi-coupling plates for quick changeover of dies in hydraulic injection molding presses and die casting processes. Our hydraulic solutions for the automotive industry include flat face quick couplers, threaded flat-face quick couplers, and multi-coupling plates to improve hose management, eliminate cross-connection and significantly improve press uptime.
