A stop during production can be complicated to deal with, especially in plastic extrusion blow molding.

The mold change is one of those activities that determine a critical loss of time during the manufacturing process: as such, speed in this procedure is key.

Molds changeover can usually take several hours in the best conditions; however, Techne has developed a faster mold change system, which reduces maintenance time to just 2,5 hours (quick mold change) or even 1,5 hours (quick mold change plus)
