Dovetail Core: New Solution
Roehr Tool recently built two of its new Dovetail Cores, complete with thread-ground molding details, for Pilgrim Innovative Plastics in Plymouth, MA. The cores were needed for molding a very large, intricate threaded part used in the food processing industry. In addition, the part design required that the cores be installed on the A half of the mold base and space was a factor due to molding machine platen limits.
Joel Nickerson, president of Pilgrim, is a long-time advocate of Collapsible Core technology and paid a visit to explore his options. It was determined that the traditional RT Series core was too long for A half mounting, so Roehr introduced him to their new patent pending Collapsible Core. Dovetail Cores are very compact and do not require the use of a front half ejector box like other styles would.
While Mold Makers, Inc. in West Bridgewater, MA, were busy building and assembling the required mold base, cavities and side actions, Roehr concurrently constructed the Dovetail Cores and, upon delivery, Roehrís senior applications engineer, Dave Helenius, was on hand to oversee the installation. Upon sampling the mold, production is running smoothly and the customer is happy with this new approach, reports Dave.
To discuss this new approach, contact Dave at 1-877-563-1912, and a thorough application review can be provided.
