Mold Components and Hot Runner Products Designed for Customer Specifications
At K 2019, Hasco will display mold base and hot runner technologies.
At K 2019, Hasco will display mold base and hot runner technologies. The company’s P1 plate range expands to include developments and additions that supplement the standard component portfolio. Innovations in the field of demolding, heating/cooling, high-temperature applications, sensors, hydraulics and cylinders round off the range and make a key contribution to boosting efficiency and achieving cost efficiency. With an extended module system for slides, the company offers variable and customer-specific configuration options for a wide range of installation spaces. DLC-coated components offer optimum gliding properties. Development of the company’s app makes it possible to calculate thermal insulation sheet surface temperatures by entering individual parameters, such as plate type, mold temperature and plate thickness.
The company’s hot runner division will be presenting its products under the "Hasco hot runner" brand. The “Single Shot” individual nozzle has been designed as a single nozzle with maximum temperature homogeneity and generous flow channel cross-sections. Different tip geometries guarantee an optimum tear-off quality and ideal heat conduction right through to the gate. The Hot Half system with a single needle valve provides efficiency and safety with a complete, ready-to-connect system, suitable for immediate production. Another highlight is the screw-on Vario Shot nozzle, which permits ready-to-mount systems, designed and produced according to individual customer specifications. With easy assembly and dismantling in the mold, it offers freedom from leakage and optimum temperature homogeneity.
A quality hot runner system is one of the more important enhancements you can incorporate into a mold to improve molded part quality, reduce production times and remain price competitive.
A rapid heating and cooling technique using pressurized water solves sink, weld line and discoloration problems.
Moldmakers need to be aware of how different gating technology can affect their customers when designing a hot runner system into a mold.
