The DI-GLIDE® Quick Die Change (QDC) system is Wardcraft’s heavy-duty version of the TEE-LIFT® QDC system. As Wardcraft’s largest configuration, this pneumatic die lifting system has the muscle to move dies up to 80 tons in weight. Its simple construction adds durability and allows for various mounting options in/on a press bolster.
