B&H Tool Co., which makes precision extrusion tooling for cable, hose, pipe and profiles, has introduced wedge ring removers, disassembly tools that are compatible with all adjustable center crosshead dies.
According to the San Marcos, Calif.-based company, wedge rings and core tubes historically have been the most difficult pieces to remove for cleanup and changeover because heat, pressure and tenacious plastic residue often means that you have to apply substantial force.
The B&H wedge ring remover allows operators to instantly pop out the wedge ring after each run. The ring floats so that the die adjustment is made against hydraulic pressure, rather than by mechanical force.
B&H Tool also introduced a cost-effective attachment for coextruding striping a single, dual, triple or quad stripe onto the extruded wire and jacketing cable. The attachment installs quickly between the die holder and the body of the barrel.
