Diamond Coating on Slideways Minimizes Wear
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: Hasco stack mold components increase production output and efficiency while decreasing costs.
Hasco had its Z1545 gear housing and Z1547 rack unit on display at Amerimold 2018. The comapny says that its Z1545 gear housing and Z1547 rack unit enable the simple, reproducible and inexpensive installation of stack molds. The low height of these stack mold components permit small distances between the tie bars on the machine and high opening forces through the use of high-quality material, the company says. DLC-coated slideways minimize wear and extend maintenance intervals. The components ensure that mold production costs remain calculable, improving item costs and competitiveness, the company says.
The company says its stack mold components make production more efficient and double the output of molded parts for the same clamping force, ensuring more effective machine use. Alternatively, the number of cavities can be kept the same and the clamping force halved, reducing the investment and the space required.
