Identical to the “A“

Series, with leader pins

and bushings “reversed.“

Specify “AX“ and “BX“

plate thicknesses when

ordering (rather than “A“

and “B“).

REVERSE “A” SERIES

When cavities and cores are to be inserted into

blind pockets, or machined directly into the “A“

and “B“ plates, the “B” Series Assembly is

used. The Top Clamping Plate and Support Plate

are omitted from the assembly.

“T” SERIES ASSEMBLY

The “AX” Series Assembly is used when the mold requires a

floating plate to remain with the upper or stationary half of the

assembly. It is basically an “A” Series Assembly with a floating

plate (“X-1”) added.

The “T” Series Assembly is used for top runner molds that

require two floating plates (“X-1” – runner stripper plate,

“X-2” – cavity plate) to remain with the upper or stationary

half of the assembly.
