DME Co., Madison Heights, Mich., has two new mold-component offerings. One is a larger helical-gear stack-mold centering device, model HG48-2000. The helical gear provides equal and synchronized parting-line openings for two- or four-level stack molds. The new, largest model provides 800 mm (31.49 in.) standard maximum parting-line opening per side.
Also new is DME’s EXK line of keyed ejector pins, providing lengths up to 25 in. for molders using thick plates. Keyed pins prevent rotation during molding, preventing damage to parts or mold bases.
