The Global Thinswitch from Mould & Die Solutions helps prevent accidental mould closure in injection moulds by verifying ejector plate return. A polyurethane dome covers the actuator spring, protecting the internal gold switch contacts from environmental contamination, water spray and oil leakage. Tested to function reliably at over 14 million cycles, these switches offer a cost effective solution to any toolroom.
Mould & Die Solutions are now holding MoS2 coated nitrided ejector pins in stock. Traditional bright nitrided ejector pins show limitations in life-span when compared to the MoS2 coated equivalent. The MoS2 coating provides a slip, which reduces friction providing excellent dry-running properties. End result? Significantly longer life span. In addition, when used in a die-casting environment, the coating provides protection against molten materials adhering to the ejector pin.
