Forwell Quick Die Change System

Forwell Quick Die Change System

QDC packages have multiple advantages.  QDC reduces the overall time taken in die changeovers, achieving consistent clamping pressures, allowing easy tool movement away from the press bolster and presentation to lifting equipment on the Bolster Extension Arms.


Forwell’s Quick Die Change System is an automatic die changing system that can be specifically designed for hydraulic and mechanical power presses. The system automates the die changing process and provides increased speed, efficiency and productivity to a workshop. The Quick Die Change System not only reduces die change time, but also promotes diverse small batch production runs and streamlines production management.

Quick Die Change Systems are becoming a standard for manufacturers as they not only increase production efficiency, but also improve the overall working environment. The Automatic Die Change System can be specified to suit your requirements and will drastically reduce machine idle time during die changes, boosting competitiveness. There are also a number of indirect benefits of installing a Quick Die Change System for your hydraulic and mechanical presses:

Automated operations reduce labour time and cost

Reduce risk of tool damage and the physical stress on operators making them more productive.

Dies can be changed without packers and adjustments by the use of standardised die clamping heights, further saving time and cost.
