Technology Tuesday: Hot Runners and Mold Components
This week’s Tech Tuesday blog brings readers a review of several products announced during the last few weeks, namely hot runner and mold componentry.
Shoulderless Guide Bush Can be Axially Secured
Hasco’s Z11 guide bush has no shoulder, making is suitable for use when there is no supplementary mold plate for axially securing the bush or if the plate in which the bush sits makes an additional demolding movement, as in the case of molds with stripper plates, for example.
Flat Guide Jaw Boosts Process Reliability
Used in combination with the Z18 guide block, Hasco’s Z190 guide jaw is designed to precisely guide and center tools, resulting in high reliability in injection molding processes.
Planting the "Seed"
Last week I shared my observations during a facility tour of mold component supplier Hasco at the K show. One highlight was its Learning Center SEED apprenticeship program, so I wanted to dig a little deeper with the instructor and three apprentices to share how the program works.
SLIDEHOW: Process Automation and Planning Strategies
I sometimes forget that many technology suppliers to the moldmaking industry are also manufacturers that use many of the same products and equipment that you do, while facing similar challenges. For example, last month during the K Show in Germany I had the opportunity to visit Hasco’s corporate headquarters in Ludenscheid.
SLIDESHOW: Technology Showcase, After K
By all accounts K 2016 was a success. According to show management, attendees were delighted with the wealth of new technical developments presented by raw materials producers, machinery manufacturers and producers of semi-finished and technical parts. Here are some technology highlights.
Technology Showcase: Mold Components and Surface Treatment
Today’s Technology Showcase features products you may have missed in recent issues.
Standardized Component Assemblies Designed to Speed Mold Building
Hasco’s standardized mold components are designed to simplify and speed the building of injection mold tools.
Designing Molds, Building Futures
Wes Cobb, president of Technical Design Associates Inc. in Brevard, North Carolina, is the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Mold Technologies Division’s 2016 Mold Designer of the Year.
SLIDESHOW: Technology Showcase, Hot Runners and Mold Components
Take a look at this week's slideshow to see products that make building and/or maintaining molds more efficient and cost-effective.
SLIDESHOW: Sold on Amerimold – Exhibitors Share their Perspectives
Amerimold exhibitors had a lot of very positive experiences this year, including making sales right from the show floor. We touched base with many of them and created this slide show to share some highlights with you!
SPE Mold Technologies Division Seeks Nominees
Hundreds of attendees from all over the world, including members of the Mold Technologies Division, attended ANTEC in Indianapolis to share knowledge and research, to network, and to learn.
Components Ease Stack Mold Installation
Hasco’s booth will reflect the increasing use of prototype and stack molds.
Hasco Introduces goHASCO, New Moldmaking Portal
Hasco has worked with its customers to develop goHASCO, its new moldmaking portal housed within hasco.com, where users worldwide can access the online shop and website in one place, 24/7. The new system went live just yesterday.
Seeing the Industry with a New Perspective
Last week I attended Plastec West in Anaheim, California (what a nice break from frigid temps in Chicago!). It was my first trade show as senior editor of MoldMaking Technology versus attending as a public relations manager for plastics industry suppliers, and I enjoyed seeing everything with a new perspective.
Setting a Standard in Hot Runner Design
Keeping hot runner system costs down is key to efficient injection mold design.
Components Ease Installation of Stack Molds
Hasco’s Z1545 gear housing and Z1547 rack unit are designed to enable simple, reproducible installation of stack molds, which are often used when production space is limited.
Take a Break and Listen In
MMT has covered how the right mold components can help improve mold cooling and produce higher-quality parts, but this week we had two experts speak about the fundamentals of mold cooling and components for optimized system design. The recorded webinar is now available.
Mold Components Available with DLC Coating
Hasco offers diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings on a variety of its standard parts manufactured for injection molding, die casting, and blow and compression molding.
3D Printing with Quick Change Mold System Creates Price/Performance Benchmark for Low-Volume Injection Molding
Stratasys Ltd. and HASCO developed a rapid, cost-efficient method to producing low volumes of injection molded prototypes by integrating 3D printing with a quick-change mold system.
