Balls on Ejector Bushings Run at Angle to Increase Load Capacity

Originally titled 'Balls on Ejector Bushings Run at Angle to Increase Load Capacity'

DMS showcases Bolex P ball-guided ejector bushings made of special roll steel bush casing, hardened and ground to hold fixed inside a high-resistant bronze cage for guiding the balls running along the cage.

DMS displays several mold-related products at NPE2018. It displays the Almo worm-gear device, which enables inserts to be tightened and released inside the mold cavity. DMS also displays the Balzi mold-venting valve, which helps resolve the most common effects of poor cavity venting. The company has Boride-bonded abrasive products in its booth, including polishing stones, diamond-compound mounted points and industrial sharpening stones. It has i-Mold tunnel gate inserts designed for bottom gating and Exaflow gate inserts for tunnel and rear-surface applications; Kool Flow compact water manifold systems for injection molding, resistant welding, pneumatic control, vacuum forming, die casting, extrusion technology and water distribution; Diprofil handheld machines and diamond tools for tool, die and moldmaking; Desoi thread unscrewing devices; full-color, high resolution mold plaques.

DMS also showcases Bolex P ball-guided ejector bushings made of special roll steel bush casing, hardened and ground to hold fixed inside a high-resistant bronze cage for guiding the balls running along the cage. The unique feature is that the balls do not run aligned, but at a slight angle, enlarging the contact area and enabling greater load capacity. This system enables the precision balls to circulate endlessly. Typically, these are used in the ejector system when a friction-free application is required. DMS displays BZ hydraulic locking cylinders with robust cam-finger design to withstand heavy loads in a compact package for use in molds with side actions, slides or core pulls, and the company has MetalRustGuard self-adhesive wrap that protects metal molds from rust and corrosion in virtually any type of climate, including high humidity and marine environments.

Conformal Cooling Technology Maximizes Cooling Efficiency

With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: DME says that its TruCool Conformal Cooling line provides greater overall cooling coverage with even distribution while maintaining a targeted, consistent temperature and reducing cycle times by as much as 60 percent.
