Linear Needle Guide Unit Ideal for Maximum Precision
The Hasco linear needle guide unit Z073/... is used when maximum precision is required in the flat guiding of plates in injection molding units and die-casting molds.
The Hasco linear needle guide unit Z073/... is used when maximum precision is required in the flat guiding of plates in injection molding units and die-casting molds. A tight-fitting tolerance between the square centering guide and the circulating needle rolling elements in the guide retainer permits reliable and highly precise centering.
This system, which is virtually free of play, ensures highly precise, flat guidance of components and is designed specifically for stripper plates. Circulating needles enable an unlimited stroke.
The guides are exceedingly low-wear on account of the rolling friction and the large contact surface of the needles with service temperatures of up to 200°C. The resulting long service life can be extended still further by using the high-performance lubricating spray Z261/….
In addition to the complete sub-assembly Z073/..., the square centering guide Z0731/... and linear needle guide unit Z0732 /... can be supplied separately.
When insulation is necessary to build a mold, the moldmaker must consider the insulation's properties and what effects these properties will have on mold performance.
With a firm understanding of the effects of injection on the core, slide and associated components, this second of two articles will discuss emerging modular technologies which provide alternatives to the limited solutions previously available.
Understanding why insulation is a key to heater life and performance.
