Max Saunders Retires, Jason Betz Named Company President

Carr Lane Roemheld General Manager Max Saunders retired in February, 2012, and has been replaced by Jason Betz, whose title is CLR President. Max has provided the company with more than 20 years of dedicated service, and we want to thank him for his fine work.

Many remember Jason as CLRs Senior Swiftsure Engineer several years ago. For the past five years, he has been working for a large stamping manufacturer in the St. Louis area.

Jason will work closely with both the Swiftsure and Hilma side of the company, led respectively by George Campbell and Dave Fischer. Sales have been going well for both divisions.

I am very pleased the CLR team has many familiar faces, and I look forward to utilizing their knowledge and experience to improve and grow our Swiftsure and Hilma divisions, said Jason.

We all wish Jason every success in his new position, and wish a happy retirement and fond farewell to Max.

More on Magnetic Quick Die Change

 


Magnetic Clamp Systems Offer Safe and Fast Mold Change

Magnetic mold clamping systems are available from Hilma, well known for hydraulic clamping systems.

The new long pole technology uses double magnets to provide up to 20% more clamping force over square pole technology. The flexible systems offer quick change of different size molds in a single minute exchange time. Systems are available for plastic, M-TECS 130 (max. 266°F) and for rubber, M-TECS 210 (max. 410°F) injection and compression mold applications.

Electrical power is required for only two seconds to unclamp. Permanent magnets mean clamp capacity is not affected by any power loss. An intelligent safety system is utilized, where a mold clamp sensor, temperature probe, and light signals provide additional safety features.

Hilma Div. of Carr Lane Roemheld is now offering these systems by Rivi Magnetics, in addition to Hilma’s well-known hydraulic mold clamps.

New Lower Cost Air/Oil Power Unit
Clamping Nut for Dies with Minimal Space

Hilma's hydraulic-mechanical clamping nut is designed especially for clamping dies on rolling bolsters, press beds and slides. It is useful on machine tool beds when the available space is limited and maximum clamping force is required, or when a hydraulic unit or hoses to clamps is unavailable or not practical.

The clamping nut provides high clamping forces with minimal torque. The t-bolt extends through the clamping nut, and the part is very adaptable to different clamping heights and tolerances. Suitable for retrofitting, the clamping nut provides easy manual clamping and unclamping.

The part comes in three sizes, with clamping forces ranging from 13,400 to 33,700 lbs. Safety features include a built-in preload indicator. For further information contact the HILMA Division of Carr Lane Roemheld Mfg. Co., e-mail us at engr@clrh.com.
