Milacron Hot runner line for moulding temperature-sensitive resins
China – Milacron was exhibiting its Summit-Series, the company's premium hot runner line, at the recently held Chinaplas 2016 in Shanghai.
The hot runner nozzle has four times less thermal variation from set point, compared to the typical thermal variation seen in a nozzle with a heater band, the company says. The Summit-Series hot runner is built completely from stainless steel, which makes it ideal for moulding shear and temperature-sensitive resins like PC, POM and PBT. The Summit-Series can also be ordered with new servo-controlled valve-gate actuators, which allow for individual speed, time and position control of each valve pin in the mould.
