12-Cav Star-Line Crown

HEITEC’s new version of the 12-Cav Star-Line Crown from Technoject Machinery Corp. is based on the proven Star-Line hot runner nozzles. This multiple nozzle for side gating of plastic articles can inject up to 12 cavities using a single hot runner nozzle. This results in a significant reduction of the control requirement since only one control zone is needed to control the temperature of 12 mold cavities, the company states.

The new design allows even greater output per mold area and thus ultimately much smaller tool dimensions. The smallest possible fit diameter is 64 mm. Hence, up to twelve injection points can now be placed on a circle of about 76 mm instead of eight as in the past.

As with the other types of the new generation Star-Line nozzles the length expansion of the nozzle does not matter anymore in terms of possible "wandering" injection points as the growth in length is completely compensated inside the nozzle by the two-piece structure of the nozzle body, the company adds.

The nozzle is characterized by a very good thermal profile. It provides a completely particle free production as well as no strings, which makes it attractive for use in clean room production.
