Hydraulic locking cylinder for plastic and die cast tools

A new hydraulic locking cylinder from D-M-E Company actuates core pulls and mold slides in injection molds, reducing design, machining, fitting and maintenance time compared to traditional slide assemblies. The cylinder enables smaller mold base sizes and stack heights, improving efficiency. The cylinder’s opening movement also operates independently of the mold opening; the piston can be retracted before the mold opens, resulting in reduced cycle time.

Also, the product provides a maximum hydraulic operating pressure of 3,625 psi within the cylinder.

The cylinder withstands temperatures up to 356°F, with the proximity switches built to withstand temperatures up to 212°F.
