Meusburger E 1820 flat and E 1840 round latch locks are designed for controlling and secure locking of the floating plate in three-plate molds. Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating of their switching elements reduces wear, provides longer service life and enables dry running, which makes the latch locks suited for use in clean rooms. Precise control cams ensure accurate switching, while an integrated damper provides for smooth and quiet operation.
The compact E 1820 features large, stable surface latches for optimal force transmission. The round E 1840 is an ideal solution for mold bases that do not allow for protruding attachments; the installation space required for the round lock can be easily created through unidirectional machining.
