Progressive Components Introduces RhinoFeet™ and RhinoToes™

Progressive Components, Wauconda, Illinois, a provider of mold components, mold monitoring devices, software and more, has introduced RhinoFeet™ to elevate molds and RhinoToes™ to separate plates for improved shop floor safety.

From molds on the floor to tools on the bench, Progressive’s RhinoFeet are a simple, safe and efficient solution for elevating and storing heavy items in the shop. This makes for a safer, cleaner approach when used under molds, eliminates the trip hazard of wood and skids strewn about the plant, and improves 5S standards within the shop.

RhinoToes are new to the product range, helping to correctly position plates to avoid pinch points during assembly on the bench. Stabilize plates either with a ½-13 bolt or mount one rhino foot to each end of a threaded rod to support KO plates, stripper plates or hot halves.

The patent-pending RhinoFeet and RhinoToes support pads feature a magnetic insert that is molded directly into the product to allow the pads to travel with the item they are supporting. When not in use, they can be conveniently stored within reach on any metal surface such as I-beams, toolboxes, machines, benches, etc.

RhinoFeet are now available in 2″, 3″ and 4″ sizes, with a safe working load of 7,000 lbs., and etched for easy identification from a distance. RhinoToes are used to support mold plates and hot runner systems when on the bench, and are offered in 1″, 2″ and 3″ sizes, with a safe working load of 2,500 to 3,000 lbs.
