HOT RUNNERS | MOULDS


Suppliers of moulds and hot runner systems are meeting industry needs for robust, reliable and efficient solutions for an increasingly diverse range of applications. Mark Holmes looks at some current developments


Latest advances in hot runner technology


Moulds and hot runners are an essential part of the injection moulding operation and system suppliers are meeting demands for ever more demanding and technical applications, while ensuring produc- tion is economically efficient and minimising scrap. Leading manufacturers have introduced a number of new products to the market to satisfy these requirements in a wide variety of industry areas. Milacron has launched the Mold-Masters


ThinPAK-Series hot runner for thin wall packaging applications. The company says that the ThinPAK- Series has the strength and durability to mould with complete reliability even in high pressure applica- tions up to 2,800 bar. Features include new hot runner nozzles, gate seals and manifold designs. The nozzles have a robust gate seal and cut-out to withstand the high pressures required for thin wall packaging moulding operations. They also feature

precisely balanced thermal profiles for good process control and the gate seals are serviceable from the parting line. The enhanced gate features a more robust design that incorporates high-strength material and a larger contact area. Utilising an enhanced valve disk bushing design any weepage is controlled and directed to easy-to-clean areas. This design extends service intervals by up to three times, minimising interruptions to operations. The new nozzle and manifold seal provides greater reliability even on cold start-up, providing a wider processing window. The new ThinPAK-Series manifolds have also been engineered for strength, certified for withstand- ing injection pressures of up to 2,800 bar -- 40% higher than Mold-Masters standard manifold designs. The company has also introduced enhancements to the Mold-Masters Fusion Series G2 of hot runner solutions for automotive and large part moulding,
