D-M-E's (Madison Heights, MI) dual-ring mold dating insert saves space, reduces complexity and cuts time in dating plastic parts. At only 10mm in diameter and 12mm high, the new model features both month and date rings in the industry's smallest dual-ring, multi-dater, indexable mold dating insert (MDI). The insert records 12 months, gives six-year coverage and eliminates the need to replace the MDI every January—saving time and money for molders. Additionally, the insert features a robust design that doesn't require an internal O-ring, thus enabling the highest temperature range in the market for dual- ring MDIs—up to 300°F (150°C). Machined from 55 HRc stainless steel for maximum resistance to corrosion and wear, the insert features a patented positive-stop, snap-in-place design that ensures the inner insert remains fixed in the correct date position throughout production runs.
