Counter molding machine is an important machine in Lasting Section in the Quality shoe production house. Counter molding machine improves the quality of lasting operation and reduces the time. So for mass production, it is an essential machine.
The following parts of counter moulding machine are given below…………..
1 Hand Clutch: It is the controlling device of the operator. There are different steps in a clutch. A skilled operator can control the clutch operation very well.
2. Hot Mould: After putting upper on the metal last, start the operation of the hot mould. The screw between the toe and counterpart of the hot mould extends, and the upper grips the hot mould. The Gripping pad of the hot mould grips the counter. After that counter gets its proper shape of the last. There are some heater coils in between the hot mould to increase the temperature of the upper and thus reduce the processing time.
3. Cold Mould: After putting upper on the cold metal last, start the operation of the cold mould. The screw between the toe and counterpart of the hit mould extend, and the upper grips the cold mould. The Gripping pad of the cold mould grips the counter after that counter retain its shape of the last. There is some cooling arrangement in between the cold mould and thus upper cannot get its previous shape i.e its shape gets fixed.
4. Hydraulic device: The automatic machine’s main operating force comes from the hydraulic pressure. There is a hydraulic chamber which is filled by Hydraulic oil of specific density.
5. Safety Switch: It is used for emergency stop of the machine to prevent accident or and damages of the upper or machine. It is generally mentioned by the red color.
6. Control Panel: Pressure, time of operation temp of application can be controlled by digital or analog control panel.
