REXDALE, ONTARIO — Tradesco Mold Ltd. of Rexdale has developed a mold that combines the firm's Quick Product Change system with an integrated ejector box built into the interchangeable, removable modules.
Each module has ejector pins located for the individual part being molded. During product changeover, the built-in pins are changed along with the module.
The system gives flexibility to maximize the number of cavities, or for making different parts within the same mold shoe. Also, if part weights are similar, different parts can be molded at the same time on a single machine. Patents are pending. The mold is available in hot-runner or cold-runner configurations.
