K2016 features the latest in tooling technologies

  • Mold-Masters’s new, premium hot runner line Summit is said to have four times less thermal variation from set point, compared to the typical thermal variation seen in a nozzle with a heater band. The nozzle profile positively affects balance and is especially effective for medical sectors where precision is paramount. It has also enhanced features in the Fusion G2 series for automotive and large-part moulding. An extended nozzle length range provides more flexibility while the compound nozzle can be used to avoid interferences with cavity cooling lines, and position nozzles in very tight pockets. New additions to Fusion G2 include high performance water-cooled gate inserts plus additional new gating methods designed specifically for certain resins. Furthermore, its new Dura+ hot runner for lighting applications features smarter angled manifold designs for easier installations and reduced cost on mould machining

  • Austrian LSR dosing systems provider Elmet will have a new Top5000P multi-component dosing system at its stand. Elsewhere, Engel will produce a pressure reservoir diaphragm on a tiebar-less Victory multi-component machine. After injection of the core and frame of glass fibre-reinforced PBT, a robot transfers it to Elmet’s LSR tools with needle valve. Momentive will produce a two-colour egg cup, with only one dosing system, on Arburg’s one-component machine. At Boy, Elmet will demonstrate a 128-cavity LSR tool where each cavity is injected by a cold runner nozzle, creating no scrap.
