A new line of collapsible cores for molding parts with difficult geometries or highly filled materials is new from Profine Molds Inc., Oakville, Ont. Its new proCore line, introduced at NPE 2006, has collapsible splines that move inward during the ejection cycle to release the part. The splines are actuated by a patent-pending mechanism that does not require any add-on pneumatics, hydraulics, or mechanical components.
