Synventive Molding Solutions (Booth 527) will display its latest activeGate technologies (eGate, Dynamic Feed SynFlow and nuGate), which are designed to give molders more control over the molding process to produce parts with higher-quality surface finishes. This additional control is achieved by using position, pressure and temperature sensors within the hot runner and mold cavity to measure the conditions of the plastic and precisely control the position of the valve pins during injection and pack.

In particular, the company will feature activeGate molding with SynFlow, a two-stage pin control technology for cascade or sequential valve-gated hot runner systems. The initial opening speed of the valve pin is reduced to prevent an explosive rush of pressurized plastic; the valve pin then opens for the remainder of its stroke at maximum speed for uninhibited filling of the part.  According to Synventive, this two-speed process enables a smoother fill, reducing hesitations and sharp velocity changes, and resulting in cleaner parts with excellent surface quality and improved process efficiency.
