Locks align two halves of a mold

Needle Bearing Locks are designed to withstand demanding requirements in mold alignment, providing precise registration between the two halves of the tool. Using FrictionFree technology, the locks incorporate a precision needle bearing to provide consistent, smooth positioning. As the locks engage, the bearings provide additional lifting power without metal-to-metal wear. After testing by independent sources and evaluation by leading molders, the locks have been proven to show virtually no wear after one million cycles.

The locks are useful in packaging and medical tooling though they work well in any application. Whether used in thin-wall molding, the protection of telescoping shutoffs, or in situations where cleanliness is required, the locks maintain alignment without requiring intermittent insert replacement.

The locks are available in three sizes of Side Locks, two sizes of Top Locks, and two sizes of Metric Side Locks. They?re compatible with other industry standard sizes allowing for retrofitting onto existing molds, and CAD geometry is available in multiple formats for designing into new tools. Prices begin at $180 for the smallest Side Lock to $235 for the largest Top Lock.
