The Woollard and Henry Expanding Cylinder Mould (ECM) leads the field in it's design and innovation. Develpoed in conjunction with experts for the Banknote Paper Industry, the Woollard and Henry ECM is the only design of it's kind with an expansion range of 220mm over the diameter. This is of major benefit to our customers in reducing Capital Outlay when replacing old/fixed Mould designs. Furthermore, tests show that the Woollard and Henry Grid plates can be changed in under an hour, critical in minimising down time.
The expansion range is composed of up to four sets of Grid Plates, each of which will expand to 70mm, ensuring maximum flexibility without affecting the concentricity of the ECM. These machine direction Grid Plates reduce the paddling effect caused by the more traditional longitudinal top bar designs of others, and demonstrate high degrees of accuracy, hence reducing the Couch bounce effect. The large open areas and easily removable plates ensure easy cleaning and maintenance.
