Materials & Material Processing

Pre-Machined Insulator Sheets suit standard mold bases.

August 14, 2013

Available in ¼ or ½ in. thicknesses, Insulator Sheets are used on molds and dies between top clamping plate and stationary platen and between bottom of ejector housing and movable platen. Made of asbestos-free material with max service temperature of 550°F, sheets include pre-machined locating ring clearance hole, assembly screw clearance holes, and mounting holes. Thermal insulating properties of glass-reinforced polymer composite inhibit heat transfer from mold to platen or from platen to mold. Read More

Keyed Ejector Pins accommodate thicker plates.

December 12, 2012

Made from thermal shock-resistant hotwork steel, EXK Keyed Ejector Pins prevent rotation during injection molding process. Precision machining creates key on head of pin to hold pin in place, eliminating damage to parts being molded or mold base itself. Pre-keyed pins also eliminate need for secondary machining. While core of pins has hardness of 40–45 HRC, OD is nitrided to 65–74 HRC; design withstands stress of industrial use. Pins come in 1/8–1 in. dia and 6–25 in. lengths. Read More

Thermal & Heating Equipment

Valve Gate Hot Runner System offers optimized thermal profile.

December 7, 2012

With optimized thermal heat profiles in nozzle and tip, Zenith Valve Gate Hot Runner System ensures uniform heat to prevent flow channel hot spots in sequential filling and family mold applications. System optimizes part quality and surface finish through elimination of knit lines. Available as hydraulic or pneumatic hot half, Zenith also offers front- and rear-loaded nozzle heater options and works with wide range of materials, particularly amorphous and semi-crystalline polymers.

Standardized Slides aid moldmakers with complex applications.

October 26, 2012

Available as complete assembly or individual components, Versa-Slide® Standard Slide Assemblies support precise alignment of mold opening and closing functions. With 10 different overall widths, components can be mixed to form thousands of combinations. Sliding mechanics are finish ground, with 0.005 in. grind stock left on overall width, bottom of wear plate, and slide angle. Read More

Controls & Controllers

Hot Runner Controller supports 16 timer-based zones.

June 18, 2012

Delivering responsive control for precise, sophisticated molding, 16-Zone Hydraulic Valve Gate Sequencer features PLC touchscreen that lets users save and load mold recipes. Visual icons show valve position for each zone, circular log shows last 200 changes, and dual-time functions allow each zone to be programmed with delay-time and on-time. Along with external alarm contact, controller features Manual Mode that can turn all outputs on/off and cycle time on/off. Read More

Fluid & Gas Flow Equipment

Plastic Baffles promote uniform flow of mold coolant.

May 28, 2010

Made entirely with engineering grade thermoplastic-glass reinforced polypthalamide, Turbulent Flow Plastic Baffles create turbulence within glycol-based mold coolant, increasing heat transfer and cooling parts evenly and quickly. Baffles can be cut to length with standard shears and are designed to maintain rigidity and other properties at high temperatures over time. Incorporating Turbulent Flow Plastic Baffles into mold's design eliminates stagnant laminar flow. Read More

Part Ejection Tool minimizes mold construction time.

May 28, 2010

Able to reduce mold construction time, Quick Strip eliminates need for ejector plates and pins, risers, and clamping plates. Absence of ejector pin holes also lends to cooling systems optimization and accelerated cycle times. Because this tool lifts part from mold cavity without leaving any marks, overall aesthic quality of part is ensured. Read More

Mold Dating Inserts provide 6-year coverage.

November 18, 2009

At 10 mm in diameter and 12 mm high, Dual-Ring Mold Dating Inserts feature both month and date rings for dating plastic parts. Miniaturized units are machined from 55 HRC stainless steel for resistance to corrosion and wear, and do not require O-ring, enabling use in temperatures up to 300°F. Positive-stop, snap-in-place design ensures inner insert remains fixed in correct date position throughout production runs. Read More
