You may not realize it, but 50 years have passed since the Master Unit Die quick-change system was introduced by D-M-E Co. (Madison, Heights, MI; www.dme.net). The system features companion insert molds that can be switched quickly-in less than 5 minutes by one person, according to D-M-E.

“This 50-year-old innovation continues to be a valuable tool for moldmakers worldwide by reducing tooling downtime and costs, all aspects even more important in light of today's more challenging economy,” says Mike Kreitner, D-M-E's business manager of quick change mold systems and emergent technologies. “MUD's staying power demonstrates D-M-E's commitment to creating quality tools for moldmakers, all important parts of being an essential resource to the industry, 50 years ago, and today.”

In addition to celebrating the half-century anniversary, the company has provided a calculator in the form of a downloadable Excel document at www.masterunitdie.com/worksheet to show you how much time and money MUD could save you.
