Take-out Inserts

GLASSMATE inserts are available as semi-finished blanks or can be precision machined to a specified finish. Inserts to fit your existing holders and POCO style holders are available from several graphite grades, depending on the pickup application. High strength grades should be used for thread transfer, under thread transfer, fine bead transfer with minimum clearance, or for long production runs. Economical grades are available for short runs or thick bead transfer applications. For closed mold pickup, bossed inserts machined with threads or finish profiles provide better clearance between the top of the mold and the take-out holder.

POCO maintains a library of standard finishes. Designers on staff work from customer provided engineering drawings to provide functional parts for individual applications. POCO can produce inserts to meet your mold or bottle requirements.

Dead Plate Assemblies

GLASSMATE Dead Plate Assemblies combine the strength of a metal support plate with the container compatible surface of a GLASSMATE Insert. Matching air holes allow an even flow of air for uniform glass cooling and smoother container transfer. Assemblies are easy to install and some designs allow the dead plate insert to be reversed for prolonged life.

About us

Company details

Man's desire to explore space and safely return led to the development of specialty materials that could withstand high temperatures during reentry. One of these materials in the race to conquer space was a specialty graphite developed by a Texas based aerospace company. Because an alternate material was selected for this application, this unique technology was sold to Pure Oil Company in 1964.

This graphite division became known as POCO, an acronym for the new owner. POCO's specialty graphites finally made it to outer space in 1977. This material was used in the radioisotope thermoelectric generators onboard Voyager I and Voyager II.

In August 2008 POCO was purchased by Entegris, Inc., creating their specialty materials division. For more information visit

POCO materials are used in many diverse applications and industries. POCO products are produced for the following major markets: Semiconductor and general industrial products, biomedical, glass industry products and electrical discharge machining (EDM). As a producer of highly technical materials, POCO offers exceptional customer support, including specific application information, design capability, machining and materials testing.
