Edge PT Pre-Pocketed Mold Bases

DME's new Edge PT Pre-Pocketed Mold Bases come with pre-machined pockets and top locks already installed. Ideal for producing molds for even the thinnest walled parts and for a variety of applications, pre-machined pockets enable a moldmaker to create separate cavity inserts and then place them into a pocket in the mold base, rather than machining directly into mold plate.

In addition, the pre-installed top locks assure better alignment of the tool to meet part specifications. Compared to only using leader pins and bushings, top locks can significantly improve part quality.

The new bases are available in five different sizes with three combinations for each size.

All new bases will include the following Edge mold base features:

  • A-plate, B-plate and support plates supplied with DME #3 steel
  • Pry slots installed on both sides of "B" plate
  • Lift holes installed
  • Return pins installed 0.125 inboard to allow for spring pockets
  • Leader pin vents machined in the housing under the bushing location
  • Guided ejection installed
  • Three-piece ejector housing
  • Center hole machining included
