The new 70 series “Mini” Hydraulic Preloading and Locking Cylinder from PFA Inc. is a part of the KOR-LOK Side-Action System product line. Providing large preloading capacity in a small cylinder and locking in the preload are the product’s primary advantages.
The new cylinder’s 8,000 lb of preload activates force in a new narrow format, allowing multiple small cores to nest together and time independently. Smaller ports and low-profile sensors ensure a large competitive advantage to standard compact hydraulic cylinders. Unique zero psi locking supports green technologies that save energy by dropping hydraulic pressure during injection. Eliminating the need for always-on independent hydraulic core pull pumps provides further energy savings.
“Modular off-the-shelf preloading and locking technology for high precision molding is at the core of PFA’s success in the mold components market,” notes Mark Scanlan, Vice President of PFA. “The new Mini KOR-LOK extends our capability into the smallest of spaces on multi-cavity molds for faster designs, easier mold builds, and greater ROI.”
The new Mini KOR-LOK is available with the new low-profile PNP sensors and traditional mechanical SPDT switches, high-temperature seals (400˚F), standard multiple and rear hydraulic porting, and flexible mold flange mounting and core interfacing accessories.
Free application reviews, off-the-shelf delivery, and customizable parametric online CAD files in over 100+ native file formats are also available.
