Diffusion bonding for manifold manufacturing offers design freedom for optimizing hot runner melt distribution, reducing color change-over time, cavity-to-cavity weight variation, peak injection pressures, melt degradation, and resin flow stress.
Purchase Adds Industry-Leading Micro Molding Technology and Hot Runner Capabilities
MoldMaking Technology Editorial Director Christina Fuges chats with Rich Oles president of Alba Enterprises about thermal imaging and how it communicates thermal dynamics in a hot runner system, how it picks up problems that other approaches cannot pick up at all or not as quickly, and how it will advance in the future.
The only thing that can mess up a solid PM plan for a manifold is a poorly designed system, and there are a variety of manifold designs and complexity levels. Many design features are the root cause of postponing a manifold PM until it breaks down.
Mastip says that FlowLoc nozzles on its Nexus pre-assembled system facilitate a thermal profile that enables a wide molding window without the risk of polymer leakage.
Mold Hotrunner Solutions Inc. (MHS) valve gate actuators are built entirely without o-rings so that they can withstand being worn out by force or heat, even at temperatures of 850°F.
