Round Fine Centering System suits mold making applications.

January 14, 2014

Heat resistant up to 302°F, Round Fine Centering System provides accurate backlash-free mold alignment, accurate radial bearing side lock, and high initial load capacity. Design allows for pre-centering of mold halves for gentle and synchronous close so injection molded parts are removed without damage. Since system is not limited to 4 corners of mold, mold maker can place unit where there will be more deflection, providing rigidity, optimized open and closure, and minimal wear. Read More
