Mould Base has been supplying ancillaries and automation from Guangdong Topstar since 2013. 

We have developed a very strong partnership in this time and supplied many pieces of equipment to companies across South Africa. The automation division has grown exponentially in the last few years and we have many happy customers who have made the move to automating their processes.

QMCS- Quick Mould Change Solution

Dave Moore - 2012-Q3-qmcs-e

Taiwanese supplier, Forwell, supplies our quick mould change equipment. We have fitted a number of large injection moulders with these failsafe hydraulic clamping systems over the past few years. Easy to use and easy to install, there are many benefits to having these clamps fitted to your large presses especially if you change moulds often.

Quick Mould Connector Couplings

Turkish company, Tamsan, supplies our range of quick couplers to speed up mould changes by eliminating the need to couple dozens of hoses to moulds when changing over to a new product run. These couplings are of the highest quality and are available either for water, pneumatic, oil or electrical or a combination of all of these. Each project is taken individually as the range is simply too large to keep stock of these type of fittings.

Mould Clamps

Zhushi is possibly the largest supplier of conventional mould clamps in the world. They supply almost all of the main injection machine suppliers in China with clamps.

We stock a range of clamps, studs, T nuts and Flange nuts from 12mm to 24mm in size.


The beauty of these clamps is that there is no need for spacer blocks or adjustable bolts to size the clamp to the mould. They automatically level themselves according to the clamping plate thickness of the mould.

Hot Runner Controllers

Shenzhen based IBS Electronics is our supplier of hot runner controllers. These controllers are simple and reliable. We can supply any number of combinations and features depending on the requirement.

Mould Racks 

Dave Moore - mold rack standard size

It’s amazing how a few sets of mould racks can neaten a mould storage area up. These mould racks use a drawer system to facilitate easy removal and return of moulds to and from the moulding division. Available in 1000kg and 1500kg per shelf version. Custom made and heavier duty racks are available on request.
