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.
