Progressive Components’ O-Rings addition provides mold designers with more route cooling line options within their tools, and an industry-standard that includes the machine groove detail. With this standardization, the subsequent replacement during mold maintenance has been made easier to locate and purchase by mold maintenance managers. O-Rings are available for both face sealing and core sealing applications and are offered in two material options: Buna-N for temperatures up to 225°F and Viton for temperatures up to 400°F. Sizes range from 0.566 OD to 4.872 OD, and cross-sections of 1/16th, 3/32nd and 1/8th.
New Diverting Rods and Plugs route water flow within cooling circuits. While the mold is on the bench, Plugs can be assembled along the locating rod, enabling positive installation and easy removal. The rod is designed to stay in the center of the cooling channel, allowing maximum heat transfer within the line.
