At "Automotive Industry" magazine's sixth Die Change Challenge in 1991, HIROTEC broke the world record for die change with a time of 87 seconds. This is a unique challenge held between large body panel manufacturers to gauge which company has the quickest die change technology. HIROTEC was able to cut its previous years' time by more than one minute and obtain the world record with the introduction of the newly developed HQDC (HIROTEC Quick Die Changer) technology.
