New Insulator Block for High Temperature Tools

New Insulator Block for High Temperature Tools

Innovative Solution Protects Monitoring Devices to 180°C/360°F

Wauconda, IL – June 12, 2019 – Progressive has announced the release of its Insulator Block, installed on the outside of the mold to protect Progressive’s CounterViews and CVe Monitors from temperatures found when molding high-temperature resins.

The maximum temperature for a CounterView is 120°C/250°F, and a CVe Monitor is 90°C/190°ׄF. When the Insulator Block is installed, both units will perform with mold temperatures up to 180°C/360°F.Other benefits include:
• Block can be installed on either half of the tool, but for the CVe Monitor, the stationary side is recommended for optimal cable routing
• Available in both Inch and Metric versions, complete with ¼-20 or M6 screws

“More and more molds are running higher temperature materials,” states Glenn Starkey, president at Progressive Components. “Meanwhile, it has become ‘standard equipment’ for tools to have either a CV Cycle Counter or CVe electronic mold monitor. This exclusive Insulator Block removes a barrier to those mold buyers specifying monitoring products on their tools.”
