Progressive Components, based in Wauconda, Illinois, a developer and distributor of componentry and software for the injection mold industry, has announced the release of a new insulator block.
The block installs on the outside of the mold and protects Progressive’s CounterView and CVe Monitor from temperatures found when molding high-temperature resins.
The maximum temperature for a CounterView is 120°C/250°F, and a CVe Monitor is 90°C/190°F. When utilizing an insulator block, both units will perform with mold temperatures up to 180°C/360°F.
The block can be installed on either half of the tool, but for the CVe Monitor, the stationary side is recommended for optimal cable routing. It is available in both inch and metric versions, complete with 1/4-20 or M6 screws.
