Mold Hotrunner Solutions Compact and robust valve gate hot runners offer flexibility
Canada – Mold Hotrunner Solutions (MHS) has introduced its new line of next-generation valve gate hot runners.
According to the supplier, the Rheo-Pro Black Box actuators and second generation iVG internal valve gate nozzles can operate at high temperatures of up to 450°C (850°F) directly inside the mould without seal wear or cooling. This durable type of actuator offers high gate quality, precision pin movement, as well as powerful shut-off force in a compact form, the company says.
Furthermore, the modular actuator units are said to provide tool makers with design flexibility for all hot runner moulds, including back-to-back stack moulds.
According to MHS, all components are engineered to enable easy retrofits and upgrades to existing systems running with conventional actuators.
Both the Black Box cylinders and iVG nozzles come in a number of different sizes for a large range of part weights and applications.
