The expansion is designed to accommodate an increased demand from North American moldmakers who want DIN metric dimensions. The component line features metric measurements with a familiar North American design.

“This expanded capacity will help us deliver on our promise to supply moldmakers with the tools they need, when they need them,” said John Harding, Manager, Global Sourcing.

All metric-sized components are in stock and ready to ship. Orders placed by 5 p.m. Eastern Monday through Friday will ship the same day. The component line includes:

  • Bronze-Plated Wear Plates – Manufactured with a long-lasting wear surface for bronze-plated molds requiring slides, cams or flat surfaces where frictional wear is a factor.
  • Self-Lubricating L-Gibs – Featuring a long-lasting wear surface for high-production molds. L-Gibs are easy to machine and can be shaped to any configuration, requiring no special tools.
  • Leader Pins – Metric Guide Pins are precision made of high-quality steel and are hardened and finished ground to close tolerances.
  • Bronze-Plated Shoulder Bushings, Ejection Bushings & Self-Lubricating Guided Ejection Bushings – Made of precision-ground steel with oil grooves and a true bushing surface that extends the full length of the bushing. Bronze bushings perform smoother and longer than plain steel, as lubricant is distributed throughout the bearing surface by the figure-eight oil groove system.
