Abstract

A technique is described whereby a multi-function mold unloading device provides automatic locating, gripping, part desprueing and trimming of manufactured molded parts. The multi-function mold unloading device is designed to eliminate manual operations which in prior art required individual functions for locating, securing, removing and desprueing parts being processed on assembly lines.
