New mono- and multicouplers have been designed to simplify and quicken water and air connections in quick-mold-change systems. The couplers, which reduce the possibility of misconnection, are leakproof, thus minimizing maintenance and environmental concerns. All couplers feature a compact design, ranging in width from 3.54 to 3.94 inches and in length from 5.31 to 10.04 inches. They also offer versatility with different connection alternatives on the mold side. Four coupler variations are available: The six-, 12-, and 18-connection models use a 3/8-inch coupler, while a 12-connection model that uses a 1/2-inch coupler is also available. Hydraulic and electrical connectors are also offered. The couplers on the machine side range in price from $350 to $800 depending on the configuration. The tool side couplers cost about half of that.
