For Carefree Slug Pulling
Dick Greenleaf, the inventor of the Shed-It, has been using the Shed-It ejector system in his own factory—high-speed stamping company Crystal Engineering (also in Newburyport)—for more than 2 yr. During that time, he says, the system has surpassed 50 million press strokes without a failure.
Headed Shed-It units are used inside a punch, while the set-screw model is used in a knockout and with other similar applications. Simply remove the old pin and replace it with the patented Shed-It. The ejector also can replace the spring in a traditional spring and pin ejector—remove the old spring, cut to length and replace it with the Shed-It.
The ejector system comes in four different diameters, from 0.050 to 0.125 in. For larger punch applications, as many as three of the units can be incorporated into a punch. Control the length by snipping off the end after installation—it should protrude 0.040 to 0.070 in. beyond the face of the punch.
