PFA, Inc. announces the release of the 70 series “mini” hydraulic preloading and locking cylinder as part of the Kor-Lok side-action system product line. Providing tremendous preloading capacity in a small cylinder and locking in the preload are the product's primary advantages.
The mini’s 8,000 lbs of preload activates force in a new narrow format, enabling multiple small cores to nest together and time independently. Smaller ports and low profile sensors ensure a large competitive advantage to standard compact hydraulic cylinders. Smaller ports and low profile sensors ensure a large competitive advantage to standard hydraulics and other compact hydraulic cylinders. Zero psi locking supports green technologies that save energy by dropping hydraulic pressure during injection. Eliminating the need for always-on independent hydraulic core pull pumps provides further energy savings.
The mini Kor-Lok is available with low profile PNP sensors and traditional mechanical SPDT switches, high-temperature seals, standard multiple and rear hydraulic porting, and flexible mold flange mounting and core interfacing accessories.
Understanding the effects of injection on the core, slide and associated components is critical to selecting the best side-action methods for a given application. This first of two articles will discuss the basic physics underlying all side-actions.
A process has been developed that uses a mold with two parting levels, which alternately open.
Turbulent-flow plastic baffles eliminate blow-by, significantly improving cooling and cycle times.
