Hasco’s new Z1855/… positioning wedges allow users to change mold inserts in injection molding tools easily and lock them in place.
Hasco says its new Z1855/… positioning wedges are easy to install and remove thanks to extraction threads in the through-holes. Free corner radii additionally simplify assembly because the installation geometry can be carried out more easily. To adjust the fixing tension and release the wedge, the Z35/... central headless screw is used. Injection Mould Price
By using two positioning wedges, Hasco says molders can achieve exact fixing in two axes for tool inserts. The inserts are fabricated from cold work steel 1.2842 to give them maximum wear resistance. By enabling fast and accurate fixing of mold inserts, Hasco says the new positioning wedges Z1855/… can reduce set-up times.

Ultimate Control for the Toughest Molding Jobs
Demands to create smaller, lighter parts have made thin-wall molding one of the most sought after capabilities for an injection molder.
It's the first material characterization method developed specifically for evaluating the injection moldability of a plastic melt.
