SVG System Doubles as Locating Ring to Ensure Alignment
Mastip Technology features a compact Single Valve Gate (SVG) system offering thermal performance and reducing mold height requirements.
Mastip has Mastip Verishot, a single valve-gate (SVG) system, and Mastip Nexus Systems, turnkey pre-assembled and pre-wired solutions, on display at Amerimold 2018. VeriShot SVG and Nexus Systems are both compatible with Mastip’s FlowLoc Technology Nozzle Range for leak protection.
The VeriShot SVG system sports a compact design, reduces mold height requirements and doubles as a locating ring housing the mechanics, which the company says ensures alignment between mold and machine platens. Pre-assembled, VeriShot features Mastips FlowLoc threaded leak proof nozzles with advanced heating technology for optimum control. FlowLoc threaded nozzles attach securely to the manifold and feature advanced heating technology with embedded heaters. VeriShot SVG is compatible with TX19 and TX27 FlowLoc nozzles, which screw directly into the lower manifold providing a secure, leak-proof solution. VeriShot is suitable for applications requiring a highly cosmetic gate finish, fast flow rates, large volume parts and dimensional accuracy. VeriShot is capable of processing a wide range of engineering and commodity polymers. Low-mold filling stress results in higher part quality and consistency. It has patent-pending technology that includes high-temperature seals and adjustable valve pins.
SPE presented its moldmaker and mold designer of the year awards to Harry Raimondi of Bales Metal Surface Solutions (Downer’s Grove, Illinois) and Chris Hanes of Micro Mold Company Inc. and Plastikos Inc. (Erie, Pennsylvania).
Recently, I reconnected with an industry colleague who will bring some international expertise to the states this May to discuss one of the hot topics in moldmaking today: conformal cooling. And, this will be followed up at Amerimold in June.
From technology demos and tech talks to awards and arcade games, Amerimold had much to offer industry this year.
