Progressive Components, Wauconda, Ill., introduced a new standardized line of expandable mold cavities at the NPE show last month. The ExCav system is designed for molding undercuts located under the part surface, and simplifies mold designs by eliminating the need for complex side-action assemblies. Ex-Cav is offered in four sizes from 20 to 50 mm. It comes in a choice of two mounting styles and includes CAD geometry for easier integration into a mold design. It can be ordered with molding details already machined into it. (800) 269-6653 • www.procomps.com
