Alan Harper Composites has launched MAGLOC, a new composite mould air ejector comprising of just two hardened precision steel parts locked together with neodymium magnetism.
According to Alan Harper Composites, MAGLOC provides the simplest solution to construction and assembly bringing attractive low cost.
After years of marketing more complex and pricey ejectors, Alan Harper Composites felt it was time to re-evaluate and develop a simpler, far less costly solution. The MAGLOC air ejector is the result, bringing a robust, low cost alternative to the composite moulding community.
Mould builders can either mould MAGLOC into a composite mould or retrofit, by sealing into a 13mm diameter hole. Alan Harper Composites explains that In operation, the smooth mould side face is kept closed with strong magnetic force and operated to open with a simple sharp blow to its base. Even thick and very rigid cured parts can be release aided in this manner.
Marketed at below £20 each, Alan Harper Composites predicts the MAGLOC becoming the mould air ejector of choice.
