Almo will display a range of mold accessories in the DMS booth, including a worm gear device that enables inserts to be tightened and released inside the mold cavity without the mold itself having to be dismantled. A hexagonal key links the worm gear elements to the cap screw that secures the inserts in the mold cavity. The detachable worm tool then can be used at 90 degrees to the screw to turn the elements.

The worm gears are precision-machined and hobbed from phosphor bronze, resulting in high coefficient of friction characteristics to support them while installed between the steel mold plates.
