Abstract

A technique is described whereby an automatic molding press unloading mechanism simplifies mold unloading, part desprueing and canister loading during the manufacturing of molded parts. The multi-function unloading mechanism is a complete automatic self-contained assembly designed to eliminate manual operations. The automatic molding press unloading mechanism is mounted to angle welded support frame 10, as shown in the figure, and is secured to moving part 11, which in turn is mounted onto molding press base 12. By having the mechanism mounted so as to operate in conjunction with the molding of the parts, the cycle time of the unloading mechanism is able to occur during the molding press cycle time, thereby eliminating the need to add additional follow-on operations.
