Flexible sealing element A4200/… Reliable and cost-efficient encapsulation of inserts

Encapsulating metal parts with plastic involves particular challenges. On the one hand, the insert must be securely sealed against the cavity that is to be filled with plastic so as to reliably prevent flash formation. On the other hand, high-quality insert surfaces, such as lacquered or electroplated surfaces, are frequently scratched or damaged by parts of the Read more about Flexible sealing element A4200/… Reliable and cost-efficient encapsulation of inserts[…]

Defined movement and latching

On complex injection moulds or die-casting tools, sometimes a second parting plane or an additional demoulding plane is necessary, for example on three-plate moulds or moulds with dual ejector assemblies. To allow defined movement and latching of the moving plates, HASCO has developed the round latch lock units Z1780/… and Z1782/… especially for these applications. The compact round latch lock units have multipoint Read more about Defined movement and latching[…]
