They won't wear out, back out, or pull out. And they are by far the fastest and easiest to install of all thread-repair inserts. At last month's Fakuma 2018 show in Germany, Meusburger (U.S. office in Charlotte, N.C.) went "small" with its two newest standard mold components. For example, its E 3310 TT-Slide unit (below) is said to be the "smallest ready-to-use slide unit on the market." It's available with slide surfaces of 12 × 10 mm and 15 × 12 mm. CAD data is available for download. The "TT" designation refers to the T-guides in the slide and cotter. This type of guide is said to guarantee optimal force transmission at high injec- tion pressures through surface contact. The DLC coating on steel of TOOLING New Mini Mold Components 52 HRC offers both high wear resistance and easy sliding properties. The slide is also said to be suitable for mirror polishing. The supplied buffer stops the small slide safely and precisely, even at high speed. This function can be implemented directly in the tooling insert or in the cavity plate to save space. The slide and guide can be installed and removed together. Second, Meusburger introduced the E 7048 "build-in" cylinder with flange (above), said to be suited to the smallest installation spaces. It comes in four sizes with three different strokes each. The smallest flange size is 37 × 25 mm. Surface or flush instal- lation is possible. Double-sealed piston rods with additional rod wipers ensure clean operation, and the Viton FKM seals can withstand temperatures up to 180 C/356 F. The cylinder can be removed quickly and easily by means of a pull-off thread. 704-526-0330 • @plastechmag 53 Plastics Technology N E W P R O D U C T S F O R P L A S T I C S P R O C E S S I N G
