Rogers Industrial Products Inc. has debuted its high-strength replacement mold adjusting screw and nut for holding upper tire molds and components in a tire curing press. The company said the screw-and-nut combination is used on most tire presses to hold and adjust the height of the bolster, the upper platen and the upper mold section, making it a critical structural press component. The company uses a steel alloy that offers hardness, tensile and yield-strength ratings it said are significantly higher than the original screws.
