Centering is carried out for the mould inserts with ceramic elements (2W/mK, blue arrow, fig. middle), which serve as the only connection between the “hot” mould insert and the mould carrier frame also for thermal separation.
Flat centering devices (green arrows, fig. left) are used on the outside to avoid jamming and seizing of guides and centering devices due to different expansions as with columns.
The central centring also over the plates of the mould assembly (green arrow, fig. right) enables the temperature control to be adjusted as required, as well as simple, fast and precise assembly and disassembly of the mould.
