In injection molding, whenever a plastic part cannot be demolded without moving tool parts, a slider is used. To guarantee excellent sliding properties, our experienced metallurgists have developed the perfect material for sliders:
In injection molding, whenever a plastic part has undercuts, the use of a slider is necessary. Otherwise, the plastic part cannot be ejected properly. For this to succeed, the right material with the right properties is needed.
Since many injection molded products have special requirements, auxiliary equipment is needed from time to time to form complex geometries, especially when it comes to releasing the finished product when the mold is opened. This is where a so-called slider is often used as a core-pulling mechanism
Sliders are always necessary when the plastic part cannot be demolded without moving tool parts. There is a great variety of slide mechanisms. At its basic level, a slider is used to convert the vertical motion of opening or closing the mold into a horizontal one.
