For demoulding moulded parts with a complex geometry, mouldmakers prefer to use split moulds. These allow undercuts on plastic parts to be demoulded. The splits act like slides and are matched to the full size of the mould. The standardisation of this concept means that complex components can be produced rapidly and easily.
The HASCO K2500/… split mould series is designed as a modular system. Depending on the geometry of the injection moulded part, customers can choose between the K2500/… ejector type and the K2501/… stripper type.
The split moulds are available in eight basic sizes, each of which has five split heights. They are graded according to mould size and are precisely coordinated with the standard dimensions of the HASCO range. The corresponding K2528/… splits, in quality steels 1.2767 and 1.2343 ESU, incorporate a machining allowance and the core retainer inserts K2531/… have to be ordered separately.
The HASCO concept enables maximum possible use of the working surfaces and an optimised split opening displacement, even if functional parts and the split actuation are accommodated within the mould dimensions. The length of the splits and the core retainer insert corresponds to the full width of the mould.
