Common Sense tells us we need an improved method of alignment/ positioning for mold halves that match the advances made in mold manufacturing.
Science tells you that an Engineering Principal will perform in a prescribed manner when strictly adhering to the Laws of Physics.
Extreme Components, LP used these 2 simple facts to develop Kinetic Alignment Technology ( KIT ). For a more complete explanation of how our products improve efficiency read below.
High Speed, Tighter Tolerances, Longest Life in the industry. It's what we do.
Here are 3 things our products accomplish every day that is not possible with traditional alignment/positioning devices.
Documented Reduction in unscheduled maintenance repairs caused by damage to delicate shut-offs and parting lines. Using KIT, this is as simple as forcing your A & B Plates to align near perfectly by Geometrically Constraining the A and B side as well as the Platen.
High Speed applications become a non-issue as our products produce less friction than traditional devices of their kind by magnitudes. These locks have been tested at a 1 second cycle, under significant load, for 30 days Non-Stop, with no wear and no heat issues that could cause a malfunction. They were cool to the touch.
The Longest Life of any product of its kind. In service now are locks that have carried enormous loads in molds with over 10 million cycles, and still maintain Zero Clearance between the male and female. We can go far beyond 10 million cycles.
