Mould & Die

Safety is Key when Lifting & Handling Heavy Moulds

RUD products are well known across the mould and die sector due to the many safety features they offer. Handling of heavy plant and injection moulding tools can easily result in damages to the tools and operator if the correct equipment is not used. Safety is key.

RUD Lifting equipment and TECDOS mechanical engineering products are regularly used across the mould and die industry for standard and bespoke projects.


The demand for mould & dies to be turned, swivelled, and twisted during the handling process is vital. For this to happen safely, the lifting equipment used needs to swivel and pivot at the same time.

RUD offer a range of lifting equipment that is regularly used across the mould and die sector.

The RUD ACP Turnado and PowerPoint Star are popular choices as they can pivot in any direction, allowing the handling of goods to run smoothly and safely.
