Latch Function on Stamp Prevents Movement on Arrow Inserts
Meusburger says that its stamps have a latch function that fixes the arrow insert into defined positions and guarantees that the arrow remains in a fixed position.
To prevent unintended movement of the arrow insert, Meusburger now offers stamps with a latching function, which the company says ensure higher process reliability during the injection molding process and prevent parts from being marked incorrectly.
The latching of the arrow insert into defined positions guarantees that the arrow remains in a fixed position. The main body of the stamp also remains at the same height as the arrow insert, and therefore is named “with fixed height.” The company says that users can easily remove the stamp at the split line face because of a withdrawal thread in the main body. Made of stainless steel 1.4112 with a hardness of 52 HRC, the stamp can be used at temperatures up to 340°C. Meusburger says that because of the low installation height, the stamp also is well-suited for installation in very thin molding plates. The new stamp is available in different variations: month (E 2420 R), year (E 2424 R), 0-9 (E 2422 R) and a blank main body for individual configuration (E 2429 R). The diameters range from 4 to 12 mm. The CAD data is available in the Meusburger web shop.
Although PERC (Programmable Electric Rotating Cores System) is not a brand-new technology, it warrants a second look as a way for moldmakers to provide another value-added service to their customers.
