ejector

Definitions:

  • One that ejects, especially a device in a gun that ejects the empty shell after each firing.
  • A device using a jet of water, air, or steam to withdraw a fluid or gas from a space.
  • One who or that which ejects.
  • In sheet-metal work, an attachment to a press for throwing out the finished stamped or drawn object while the die is rising and before the operator or the feed-motion places the next blank in position. The push-out plate used with presses employing double dies is a form of ejector. (See <internalXref urlencoded="double%20dies">double dies</internalXref>, under <internalXref urlencoded="die">die</internalXref>.) The stripper, on the other hand, is not an ejector, since it releases the work from the die only, without removing it from the press. See <internalXref urlencoded="stripper">stripper</internalXref>.
