Scalable to 128 cavities, Husky’s UltraShotTM Injection System offers the injection molding process unconstrained part design and risk-free scalability.
I saw my first 3D-printed hot runner manifold at K 2019 in Germany, but the system did not have a name yet. Fast forward to 2020 and it not only has a name, but it’s been successfully implemented in a number of applications across Europe. And today, it’s ready for the North American marketplace.
Watch to learn how misdiagnosing temperature control issues caused by defective or incorrectly wired components can make finding root cause and solving the problem difficult and time consuming.
With a show as big as K 2019 with more than 3,000 exhibitors from 63 nations, you may think that identifying a theme among all the technology would be difficult, but after all is said and done, two words come to mind: efficiency and control.
MoldTrax Hot Runner Extravaganza brings a wealth of expertise and advice for making the most out of the hot runner design, function and performance.
If a mold is the heart of a molding system, then the hot runner system is the heart of a hot runner mold, and I recently learned that there is a lot to know when it comes to designing and maintaining these systems to ensure optimal mold and part quality and performance.
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.
