Article-Frictionless slide retainer

The Slide Retainer that is the latest tooling component to use Progressive Components? (Wauconda, IL) Friction Free technology aims to provide maintenance-free operation as well as reliable slide retention. It reportedly eliminates the resistance and abrasion that generally occur with slide-locking products. The design features a roller that engages into a groove within the side action assembly. An engineered spring is said to be proven after millions of test cycles. Progressive says the SR is significantly more compact than other units and easier to machine, yet it holds a greater amount of weight. It is available in metric and inch standard sizes, and although suitable for any injection mold, it is said to be especially advantageous in cleanroom, medical, food packaging, and electronics applications.?RN
