The Expandable Cavity (EX-CAV) simplifies design and cuts costs to reliably mold and release external profiles on circular plastic parts.
The Expandable Cavity (EX-CAV) simplifies design and cuts costs to reliably mold and release external profiles on circular plastic parts. The product is ideal for parts such as bottle caps, threads, snap rings, barbs, convex grooves, protrusions, logo details, etc. -Simplifies mold design *Eliminates traditional slides *Uses existing ejector system for actuation -Reduces maintenance costs -Maximizes cavities per mold *Compact -Improved mold balance -Easily accommodates family molds -Reduces cycle time from staging plates forward during mold open -Can be ordered with the required molding detial -Detail is machined in a one-piece unit eliminating the risk of error or mismatch that can occur with mating slides
