MEX 2017 Angled gates for curves
At Moulding Expo 2017 MHS Heisskanaltechnik will be presenting its new Contour manifold hot runner system, which it says offers one the freedom to place gates at any angle for plastic parts with curves or special gating requirements.
This new technology is based on MHS’s Rheo-Pro Swing Lock, a fully adjustable mechanism that allows each nozzle to securely engage the hot runner manifold at any angle. In combination with the new cooling-free Black Box valve gate technology, Contour offers a better solution for angled gating applications such as contoured automotive plastic parts.
Perpendicular melt injection into the curved surface of a cavity for uniform cooling around the gate area allows for high quality gating results.
