Components resist wear

TNP_Superior_ac.jpgA new set of mold components combines tough materials of construction with special coatings to boost service life and reduce maintenance requirements. Glide-Rite Series ejector pins are constructed from H-13 steel, through-hardened, and nitrided. Next, the surface is coated with a phosphorous manganese treatment that retains lubricants to reduce binding in ejector systems. The pins are offered in standard and oversize diameters to 1 inch and lengths up to 40 inches.The guide sleeves have thin- and standard-wall thicknesses and are manufactured from graphite-impregnated A-10 tool steel and nitrided H-13. They are also coated with a special chromium alloy from Iosso Metal Processes. The patented coating is only a few microns thick, but it offers lubrication-free operation for cleanroom settings. The chrome reportedly will not chip and is available as an option on all Superior mold components. Standard wall thickness sleeves are available in lengths up to 12 inches, and the thin-wall models come up to 8 inches in length.
