Melt Delivery and Control System Enables Ultimate Design Freedom

Scalable to 128 cavities, Husky’s UltraShotTM Injection System offers the injection molding process unconstrained part design and risk-free scalability.

Additive Manufacturing

Giving Mold Builders Additive Capabilities, Super Creativity

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.

VIDEO: How Does Thermal Imaging Communicate Thermal Dynamics in a Hot Runner System?

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.
