Hasco America’s thermal protection hose Z8570 meets injection mold temperature control requirements for greater cost-efficiency and occupational safety during the product process.
Hoses are made up of braided textile glass fiber and a silicone foam coating for optimal thermal insulation and excellent mechanical protection. The material’s internal sliding properties allow it to be more easily pulled over hoses and bridges.
Thermal protection hoses are available from stock in red and blue and can be used at temperatures from -40°C-220°C.
Although PERC (Programmable Electric Rotating Cores System) is not a brand-new technology, it warrants a second look as a way for moldmakers to provide another value-added service to their customers.
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.
