Synventive Molding Solutions will feature its SynFlow® two-speed sequential valve gating hot runner technology, which provides molders with optimized plastic flow control, and solves common surface defect problems on large parts such as automotive bumpers and instrument panels. This unique, two-speed technology is an industry first and can be used to eliminate surface defects on large molded parts, the company reports. Common defects that SynFlow can solve include: pressure alteration marks, opposite direct gating marks, sink marks after coating and reduced adhesion of finishes. The results for molders are clean parts, reduced rejects, and better overall processing, the company adds.
