Die Spotting and Mold Tryout Press


Die spotting presses, also called mold tryout presses, or sometimes referred to as 180 degree tryout presses are used in repairing dies or molds or testing new ones prior to commissioning them for production. We offer nine sizes and two different styles of hydraulic tryout presses, which improve work efficiency, reduce costs and help to produce high-quality dies or molds.

Die spotting presses are suitable for final assembly, grinding, and repair work of molds/dies for various processes including plastic injection molds, die casting dies, punching dies, transfer molds, metal molds, forging molds, glass molds, rubber and plastic molds and metallurgy dies. They are specially made and ideally designed for the mold and die manufacturing industry. In addition, our MSP-SB series is also well suited for large area sheet cold press molding in the automotive, motorcycle, and hardware industries.

Siemens PLC & HMI.

This spotting press features a top of the line Siemens PLC and HMI control system. Tried and tested, Siemens is available globally and offers excellent performance and service.



Ensures True Squareness In Real Time.

System consists of four encoders located at the four corners of the moving platen. The PLC screen continuously shows the position of each corner thus allowing for true parallelism during each stroke. The system has a die / mold protection feature. If the difference is more than the setting that has been entered the machine will stop immediately. This means that if a worker has left anything such as a tool inside the die / mold when the moving platen touches the tool the machine will stop immediately. This function helps to protect the die / mold before damage occurs.



Greater Accuracy and Efficiency.

Our servo system allows for greater accuracy of the moving platen stopping position and offers very significant energy savings.

Maximum Worker Safety.

We use two sets of CAT4 light curtains to ensure the press stops immediately if anyone enters or puts a limb in the pressing area.



Added Convenience.

We include a dynamic ejector checking device to test if the mold / die springs are working correctly.



We Use Brand Name Components You Know, Already Use and Trust.

We use only the finest quality components that are open source, and readily available locally in your area, or from our online parts store. We do not use any impossible to find proprietary components.
