Replaceable Insert / Liner

Replaceable insert is produced using tool steel forged or rolled blocks.

It is a standard dimensions component compatible with all shot sleeves.

It is used in cases when the sleeve in the pouring zone is exposed to severe operating conditions.

Advantages of using replaceable insert

Extended sleeve lifetime

One sleeve can on average last for 3 insert replacements before it has to be replaced. This way sleeve in-service time is substantially prolonged.

 

Lower operating costs

Using replaceable inserts, the number of sleeves required to complete a series is lower than in cases when inserts are not used. This results in lower expenditure on shot sleeves.
