Profine Molds (Oakville, ON) has launched a new patented series of hot runner nozzles as part of its recently introduced proSERIES™ technology responding to customer demands for reduced supply chains and lower costs. The new patented proRUNNER systems provide molders with fast start ups, ease of operation and performance while reducing the hot runner cost by as much as 40 percent when combined with a Profine mold. Manufactured to exacting ISO9001:2000 standards, the new proRUNNER nozzle design consists of four completely interchangeable components that include a nozzle body, gate body, flange and heater. Add in the thermocouple and a set screw used to lock the flange in position to the nozzle body, and you have the complete nozzle assembly. The patented front mounted nozzle design provides in-mold, in-machine access for easy removal and maintenance; ideal for plastic processors. Built from standard or to custom configurations, proRUNNER systems are configurable up to 128 drops featuring hot tip, sprue gate and multi-tip edge gate technology. Nozzle sizes currently process material up to 50g shot weight per part and can process a range of engineered resins including 45 percent glass-filled nylon and TPE. Manifolds made from SS420, H13 or P20 withstand high processing pressures and feature complete balance and superior thermal control even when processing tough materials like polycarbonate (PC). Single proRUNNER standard manifold layouts are based on an X, Y or H flow design providing up to 24 drops and include 240V removable heaters.
