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.
Successful production of plastic components associated with the extrusion, injection and compression molding greatly depends on the mold material selection.
The right mold components can help improve mold cooling and thereby produce higher-quality parts.
Turbulent-flow plastic baffles eliminate blow-by, significantly improving cooling and cycle times.
