Undercut Release Component's 3D Ball Adapter Prevents Binding
PCS Co. says its new ProLifter is self-aligning and compensates for any misalignment from cumulative manufacturing tolerances and compound angles.
PCS Co. launched the ProLifter, a standard undercut release component. PCS Co. says that the ProLifter is unique in that it is self-aligning and compensates for any misalignment from cumulative manufacturing tolerances and compound angles. The ProLifter consists of a three-piece assembly with an optional fourth piece.
Product pieces include the bar or rod, the adapter ball assembly and a guide shoe. PCS Co.’s optional piece for the ProLifter is a keeper key, which is designed for use with a rod. Five assembly sizes are available, including ¼, 3/8, ½, ¾ and 1". The 3D ball construction on the ProLifter eliminates excessive wear and binding.
The right mold components can help improve mold cooling and thereby produce higher-quality parts.
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.
Turbulent-flow plastic baffles eliminate blow-by, significantly improving cooling and cycle times.
