A new line of side interlocks with interchangeable wear surfaces that eliminate the need to replace the entire device has been developed by D-M-E Co., Madison Heights, Mich. These IN2 (Innovative Interlocks) provide accurate alignment of mold halves. The holder block remains attached while the wear inserts are changed. The interchangeable inserts are made of graphitic steel that fits into a holder plate of high-speed tool steel. The graphitic steel pieces are inexpensive to produce and provide a low coefficient of friction for long wear life.
