Ancillaries In-Mould Air Ejector

In-Mould Air Ejector

A valve which provides an efficient method of removing cured mouldings without the mould damage associated with wedges or mechanical force.

The in-mould air ejector is designed to be fitted into a composite or a metal mould, with specific mould inserts which can be provided for fitting into either composite or metal tooling.

Features include:

  • Designed to provide maximum air-flow with the minimum of interference with the mould surface
  • The 17 mm flush end surface is considerably smaller than most other units currently available
  • The high opening force created by the larger integral piston at the rear of the valve ensures reliable and powerful operation
  • Machined from steel and treated to provide a hardened and corrosion resistant surface
  • The standard version has a maximum operating temperature of 80°C
  • A high temperature version has a working temperature limit of 180°C and a maximum temperature limit of 200°C
  • Standard metric thread to enable threading into the mould structure and easy removal
  • Closing force is provided by an internal spring but air pressure can be applied if working against high in-mould pressures
  • Air connections positioned in the end-cap surface to enable easy access once installed
  • Remote operation by pneumatic push-button switch connected via 6 mm pipes and fittings
  • Single push-button may be used to operate multiple ejectors
