MHS - Mold Hotrunner Solutions presents new Contour manifold hot runner systems that offer injection mold designers the ability to place gates at any angle for plastic parts with curves or special gating requirements.

At the core of this new technology is the Rheo-Pro Swing Lock, a fully adjustable mechanism that allows each nozzle to securely engage the hot runner manifold at any angle. In combination with new cooling-free Black Box valve gate technology, Contour hot runners offer a solution for angled gating applications such as contoured automotive plastic parts.

The system enables perpendicular melt injection into the curved surface of a cavity for uniform cooling around the gate area for high-quality gating results. The hot runner manifolds also stay flat, which the company says eases mold integration. The valve gate systems are available with gate diameters from 2–6 mm and melt channels ranging from 10–22 mm.
