Positive Locking Cylinder Permits Safe Locking
Hasco’s positive locking cylinder Z2302/... is suitable for use with core pulls and mold slides and enables service temperatures up to 180°C.
For high-temperature applications in compression and injection molding tools up to 180°C, Hasco has, as its latest innovation, introduced the positive locking cylinder Z2302/... with mechanical final position sensing via mechanical switches.
According to the company, this design permits safe locking of the piston rod and is suitable for use with core pulls and mold slides. The cylinder has optimized gaskets and is easy to mount, and the integrated positive locking means there is no need for a locking device on the mold. The cylinder is mounted either with the Hasco flange Z2310/... or the Hasco groove-nut set Z2311/..., which helps with fine setting.
Improve efficiency and speed with hydraulic locking core pull cylinders.
Turbulent-flow plastic baffles eliminate blow-by, significantly improving cooling and cycle times.
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.
