SelfLube to Display its Trunnion Line at The Amerimold Expo

4 Jun 2015

Leading U.S. manufacturer of precision mold and die components, will be displaying its line of Trunnion Lifter Slides at this year's Amerimold Expo. This is an important trade show for the mold-building industry held this year June 17-18 at the Donald E. Stevens Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

"The perfect tool for mold builders because they were built with the mold builder in mind," says CEO Phil Allor. "These components deliver a significant value to customers by reducing expensive build time and costs."

SelfLube makes six types of Lifter Slides that are available each with 100 ready-to-install configurations, which include:

  • Trunnion Lifter Slides (inch - TGA)
  • Trunnion Lifter Slides (inch, angled - TSA)
  • Trunnion Lifter Slides (inch, angled with adjuster - TJA)
  • Trunnion Lifter Slides (metric - KOCU)
  • Trunnion Lifter Slides (metric, angled - KOCUF)
  • Trunnion Lifter Slides (metric, angled with adjuster - KOCUM)

These are real time-savers because they automatically conform to any lifter rod angle, thereby reducing machining and build time. Models are available with angles of travel of up to 10 degrees with an optional rod length adjustment feature. "Tool builders prefer them for their rugged design and durability," adds Allor.

This will be SelfLube's 16th year exhibiting at Amerimold. Other products that will be on display at the show will include cutting tools, machine tools, CAD/CAM, 3D printers and much more. Scheduled conferences will also take place, which will deliver expert insights on the production, management and challenges within the industry.
