Manifold enables quick spray nozzle connection during QDC
Industrial Innovation offers the Quick Spray Release Multi-Connection manifold. It enables single-click disconnect and connect of multiple hoses to assist with QDC for spray nozzle hookup for in-die spray application. The single-handed process helps simplify die change and reduce changeover time.
Each die has hoses connected to a single, standard manifold, and the manifold is keyed for error-proof connections. During die changeover, the operator unclicks the quick-disconnect manifold, removes the die, puts the new die in place, and plugs in the manifold. The operator then loads the part program and spray profile for accurate volume, placement, and timing of the lubricant.
