USA-based Progressive Components recently expanded its portfolio with new products that support the unique needs of medical tools for cleanroom moulding.

Progressive Components recently introduced new products that support the unique needs of medical tools for cleanroom moulding, thereby increasing its offerings to over a dozen products with features that offer advantages within cleanroom environments.

The new components, which include tapered series date plugs and stainless steel support pillars, have several advantages. One, the tapered series date plugs made of stainless steel feature a tapered seal between the date plug and the date ring. Low viscosity resins commonly used in medical applications easily flash, which the tapered seal prevents and thus eliminates potential non-conformances with the moulded part.

Another, the stainless steel support pillars eliminate the allocation of labour and cost for medical mould builders to make custom pillars in-house.

“Our roots are in the medical mould market, being located in one of the world’s largest medical moulding corridors,” notes Glenn Starkey, President of Progressive Components. “Early on, we recognised that a high-demand, high-cost mould for medical applications should not have rusty mould base components, nor should the shop that builds it make mould base components such as locating rings and press knockout extensions.” Starkey added that Progressive makes components made of stainless steel or black oxide items for corrosion resistance, just like the support pillars. In the critical cavity/core area, the tapered series date plugs are offered as exclusives such as friction-free slide retainers, needle bearing locks and ultra pins, and treated for lubricity.
