Progressive Components introduces new advantages to streamline resources within your shop.
This past year, the Progressive team has enjoyed developing new product advantages for US mold builders. Following is a quick video from Progressive’s Glenn Starkey, describing that through the use of Configurable Part Numbers, an item can now arrive at a shop’s door, head straight to the job bin, and be ready for when mold assembly occurs.
BRASS EXTENSION PLUGS
Nobody drives to work looking forward to spending a day making sparks at the cutoff grinder and then grinding a radius onto Angle Pins. As described HERE, just give the finished length, and the Angle Pin arrives finished machined to free up valuable labor and equipment.
EJECTOR PINS / CORE PINS
In the past, in-house machining of Ejector Pins did not begin until final plate thicknesses were known. Today, more and more shops are ordering pins to the final numbers for $1 to have pins finished and cut-to-length and $0.75 adds a flat for keying. See all options for finished Pins HERE, and check out this portion of the video HERE. Also, Core Pins with finished molding detail can have all info needed within a configurable part number in the BOM, with no print required.
New sizes of Bar Locks have recently been added. However, Pro realizes that there's an infinite amount of plate stack-ups that can occur, described HERE. That's why we've made it easy and affordable to order custom Bars and Guides ready for installation, eliminating the need for in-shop modifications.
Progressive's goal is that these new capabilities help to focus resources towards cavity/core work, and that configurable part numbers help keep the easy things easy!
