Progressive Components (Wauconda, IL) has expanded its exclusive line of undercut release solutions by adding two new sizes of FlexiCores®. By springing away from the molded detail as the ejector plates move forward, the FlexiCore offers an economical and space efficient method for releasing molded undercuts. Other benefits include:

  • after wire EDM’ing core inserts, the FlexiCore can easily be fit from the parting line, while the entire core half of the mold is assembled;

  • a Bronze Guide that prevents twisting and provides wear-resistant support;

  • and an included Heel Plate that secures the unit without rigidly affixing it to the ejector plate.

"FlexiCores are a proven approach that is perfect for reducing mold cost and delivery times," says Todd R. Steinhoff, U.S. Sales Manager at Progressive Components."

New sizes include 12x14mm and 12x16mm, and they are available with all styles of FlexiCore assemblies from Progressive.
