IMS Co. has added the IMS Screw Handler for injection molding machines and extruders.
The device is inserted onto a hot screw for safe and fast transfers. Maintenance workers quickly set the device over the screw and safely transport it for fixing, cleaning or change-outs. The Screw Handler's contact points are made from brass, which IMS said safeguards expensive screws from marring, scratches and dents.
Built with a triangular aluminum body that a screw fits into, the IMS Screw Handler uses heat-protective handles and quick-adjusting knobs for the brass heads. It fits a wide range of screw diameters sizes, from 40 millimeters to 80 millimeters.
IMS is in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
