Cutting Sprue Bushing Removes Need for Secondary Operation
DMS adds Almo’s cutting sprue bushing to its range of edge gate cutting components.
DMS adds Almo’s cutting sprue bushing to its range of edge gate cutting components. The cutting sprue bushing enables feeding plastic components near the mold’s center, virtually eliminating cold runners into a runnerless cold feed and trimming the gate as the mold opens, removing the need for secondary operation. It also provides a large edge gate area to reduce injection pressure and improve the packing and quality of the final plastic product.
Turbulent-flow plastic baffles eliminate blow-by, significantly improving cooling and cycle times.
Simple cylinder calculations provide good first look comparisons for proper sizing when moldmakers are considering the most suitable side-action option early in the mold design.
The right mold components can help improve mold cooling and thereby produce higher-quality parts.
