ALBA Quick Knockout Coupler
Couplers for Hydraulic or Mechanical Ejection
Ideal for use with: Quick Mold Change systems and Two-stage Ejection
Designed to provide a quick method of attaching the ejector plate in your mold to the ejection system in your molding machine. Provides positive ejector plate return while greatly reducing set-up time.
Perfectly suited for those molding machines where the ejector plate on the machine is difficult to reach. Ideal when center ejection is desired, but impossible to “tie-in”. Work with either hydraulic or mechanical ejection. ALBA has recently expanded the Quick Knock Out Coupler line up to 700 series for up to 5,000 ton machines.
