THE Mohr Lino-Saw automatically cuts slugs to required measure before they are delivered to the galley.
Eliminating liner changes, this is invaluable for composition requiring frequent changes in measure since it also controls vise jaw and assembler slide settings with a single operation.
THE Six-Mold Disk minimizes mold and liner changes.Its exclusive one-piece design provides unequalled rigidity, durability and accurate alignment and gives 50 per cent added mold capacity.
WHEN the Hydraquadder is controlled by push-button operation, the operator selects the desired function by pressing one of four buttons at the right of the keyboard; the hydraquadder does the rest.
For tape operation the hydraquadder's electric control system is plugged into the tape operating unit, and the Hydraquadder then responds automatically to coded signals on the tape.
