Companion insert mold features and applications

The two companion insert mold styles available with the Quick-Change U frame increase the exceptional design flexibility of this series. A wide range of options adds to this versatility. The result is the most versatile injection molding tooling offered to the industry. T-style insert molds offer the maximum projected mold area and are available in laminated construction including three- and four-plate designs. Smaller sizes are available in either solid or laminated construction. Standard insert molds are the most economical style and are recommended when the additional width of the T-style is not required. Standard insert molds are avail- able in solid or laminated construction including three- and four-plate designs. Both style insert molds can be ordered with a complete ejector system including return pins and pillar posts. Other options include stripper plates, sleeve ejection and three-plate construction for a pinpoint gating system. Machining for heater car- tridge holes, water lines, rough or finished pockets, taper locks and other special applications is also available. As noted, the open design of the U frame permits installation of water lines or hydraulic cylinders on any side of the insert molds. Design options for insert molds include spring loading, early return, unscrewing mechanisms, hot sprue bushings, hot runner molding and machining for cam slides. Insert molds can be ordered with interlocking ejector plates for positive return and stroking action when used with frames having an interlocking ejector system.
