HOT RUNNERS/MOLD COMPONENTS Product Focus 44 MoldMaking Technology —— OCTOBER 2018 Undercut Release Component's 3D Ball Adapter Prevents Binding PCS Co. launched the ProLifter, a standard undercut release component. PCS Co. says that the ProLifter is unique in that it is self-aligning and compen- sates for any misalignment from cumulative manufacturing tolerances and compound angles. The ProLifter consists of a three-piece assembly with an optional fourth piece. Product pieces include the bar or rod, the adapter ball assembly and a guide shoe. PCS Co.'s optional piece for the ProLifter is a keeper key, which is designed for use with a rod. Five assembly sizes are available, including ¼, 3/8, ½, ¾ and 1". The 3D ball construction on the ProLifter eliminates excessive wear and binding. PCS Co. / 800-521-0546 / Latch Function on Stamp Prevents Movement on Arrow Inserts To prevent unintended movement of the arrow insert, Meusburger now offers stamps with a latching function, which the company says ensures higher pro- cess reliability during the injection molding process and prevents parts from being marked incorrectly. The latching of the arrow insert into defined positions guarantees that the arrow remains in a fixed position. The main body of the stamp also remains at the same height as the arrow insert and therefore is named "with fixed height." The company says that users can easily remove the stamp at the split line face because of a with- drawal thread in the main body. Made of stainless steel 1.4112 with a hardness of 52 HRC, the stamp can be used at temperatures up to 340°C. Meusburger says that because of the low installation height, the stamp also is well-suited for installation in very thin molding plates. The new stamp is available in different variations: month (E 2420 R), year (E 2424 R), 0-9 (E 2422 R) and a blank main body for individual configuration (E 2429 R). The diameters range from 4 to 12 mm. The CAD data is available in the Meusburger web shop. Meusburger US Inc. Standard Molds / 704-526-0330 /
