Progressive Components (Wauconda, IL) has introduced the ModuLifter Undercut Release System that simplifies the release of undercuts for large molds using a rod-style, standardized modular lifter assembly.
The ModuLifter consists of six different base sizes that accept rods from ½ to 1½ inches in diameter. It is available with or without cooling, including hoses and fittings, and features 5° and 10° acceleration/deceleration angles. Off-the-shelf availability eliminates in-house design and manufacturing.
“There are several different systems to address the numerous aspects of releasing undercuts,” states Ken Rumore, Engineering Manager at Progressive Components. “With the ModuLifter, one system can be used for many scenarios, allowing assembly and maintenance personnel familiarity, consistency and efficiency with their mold maintenance plans.”
