Patent Awarded For Bayonet Quick-Change Plug Assist
Thermoforming machinery and tooling manufacturer
Brown Machine LLC has been granted a US patent for
a quick-change tooling concept that allows rapid installation
and removal of plug assists without the need for hand
tools. The bayonet-style feature allows plug assists to be
individually installed or removed with a simple hand twist.
When twisted to the locked position, the plug assist is
firmly held so that it cannot accidentally rotate to
an unlocked position.
The patented bayonet concept can be incorporated
into newly designed 3rd platen and conventional
thermoforming tools as well as retrofitted
to many existing tools.
Brown Machine designs and manufactures a
complete line of thermoforming equipment
including tooling. Brown fully supports its capital
equipment business with a full complement of 24-hour oncall
service and parts capabilities.
