When molding high-temperature resins, direct gating with a hot runner system can save molders time and money.
Integrating heating and cooling into the mold helps improve injection-molding control and flexibility.
An upgradable approach to flow-control technology offers flexibility and could help ease the decision on whether the technology is worth the investment.
Eliminating hesitation marks is easier and more cost-effective with multi-speed hydraulic technology.
Alternative venting valves can help overcome standard mold venting limitations and improve mold performance.
Developing basic cleaning and repair skills among in-house technicians should be the goal of every shop that runs hot runner systems.
For large injection-molded parts, a servo-driven valve gate system can improve surface finish and part performance.
An easy way to get a snapshot of how a mold is operating is to run regular mold scans via a hot runner temperature controller.
Incorporating multiple-gate nozzles means smaller molds, small presses, a balanced fill rate, reduced residence time, temperature control and design flexibility.
Keeping hot runner system costs down is key to efficient injection mold design.
