Tooling: Two-Stage Ejector for Off Center Mounting
Hasco’s Z1697/ two-stage ejector targets off center mounting, particularly for larger molds where the ejector system activation requires high forces.
Hasco says its Z1697/ features a compact design with nominal diameters of 16, 20 and 26 mm. For off center mounting on larger molds where more force is needed to activate the ejector system, two or four of the two-stage ejectors can be mounted symmetrically on the ejector side. The two strokes acting in the same direction can be adjusted on an infinitely variable basis, with positive locking ensuring functional safety.
Hasco says the Z1697/ two-stage ejector can be easily fixed to the ejector assemblies, with precise internal mounting, ensuring simultaneous, clean ejector guidance. All the two-stage ejectors can be supplied with a DLC coating on the functional surfaces. Providing a high surface hardness and low coefficients of friction, this coating can improve the service life of the mold.

Injection molders are warming up to the idea of cycling their tool surface temperature during the molding cycle rather than keeping it constant.
Nowadays, there's a lot more to mold wear and corrosion protection than just hard chrome and electroless nickel. Some tools need more protection or more lubricity than they can offer. Here's one expert's guide to the newer options.
These are overlooked components that can cost you thousands.
