Progressive Components (Wauconda, IL) offers new sizes of needle bearing locks from its Friction Free line. To further ease integration into a variety of tools, three new sizes of this unique lock have been added in a side lock configuration, and two new sizes in a top lock orientation. This style features a patented live cage, which allows for proper bearing performance, versus pocket trapped rollers. Incorporating precision needle bearing technology to provide consistent, smooth positioning, as the locks engage, the bearings provide additional lifting power without metal-to-metal wear. Live animations of this product can be viewed at www.procomps.com/demo. Needle bearing locks are just one of many alignment lock styles and configurations available. Progressive also has added the VersaLifter® to its popular range of undercut release solutions. Originally developed by Omni Mold Systems (Lisbon, CT), Progressive now owns the product rights and serves as the primary global distribution source for this product. The VersaLifter features support guides that provide smooth sliding action, reducing galling and flexing problems. Its compact design allows for tighter ejector pin placement. This product is in good company with Progressive’s popular UniLifter system, which is a widely used standard, and FlexiCore undercut release component that offers space savings and economy. Available in a wide range of sizes, the VersaLifter is manufactured in A-10 steel, which is finish machined and ready for molding detail.
