EZ SLIDER is a simplified self-contained unit designed to aid in molding undercuts and other part features. The unit utilizes the open and closing action of the plates to action a hydraulic plunger which intern moves the extension rod forward to create the part feature. Once the mold opens the rod retreats allowing for part ejection. EZ SLIDER replaces and reduces machining required for traditional slide units and lifters. No need for complex angular machining set ups or multiple components assemblies! Simply machine in a pocket and drop in the EZ SLIDER.
EZ SLIDER angled units are available in standard increments of 5° deceleration up to 35° or made to your specified angle as special-order. Undercuts can be relieved where traditional slides or lifters cannot be utilized, giving molders more design and manufacturing flexibility. EZ SLIDER units replace expensive hydraulic cylinders, external limit switches, mounting plates and eliminates the manufacture time and materials for additional components.
The EZ SLIDER is available in 6 versions to fit your applications needs.
*NOTE: 00 specifies 0°. All units are available from 5 to 35 in 5 increments or to your sepcified angle as special order units. Email: [email protected] for a personalized quote.
Integrated internal stainless-steel limit switches with LED illumination are available upon request to give a signal that it is safe to continue the molding process.

How Does it Work?
The cut way view below allows you to see the inter working of the EZ SLIDER unit. As the actuator is compressed by the above plate it applies pressure to the attached plunger downward causing the hydraulic oil to push the spring rod forward to the molding position. During the ejection process as the mold opens the actuator is release and the return spring pushes the spring rod backwards. The molded part is now ready for ejection.
