Thermoplay presented a number of hot runner innovations at Fakuma 2017. Among them was the F Ø11 for special applications in cosmetic, medical and food packaging markets.

The new F Ø11 is a mini valve gate nozzle. It was designed for applications in restricted areas. It has a minimum pitch of 17 mm. According to Thermoplay, the compact profile allows for injections on an insode surface of a part. Additionally, the nozzle and tip design allow for low thermal dispersion.

According to Thermoplay, the heaters uniformly distribute heat along the whole nozzle surface, consuming little energy of 150W maximum per nozzle. The nozzles are ideal for high cavitation applications requiring increased precision, because the valve gate actuation can be pneumatic or hydraulic, individual or plate actuated.

Don't judge a can by its cover: Transparent cans hit the stores in Asia

10/19/2017 - Packaging – Milacron has presented a can that is transparent. Together with S&W Fine Foods International, a Del Monte Pacific Ltd company, Milacron developed the product, which is already available on store shelves in Seoul, South Korea, and Shanghai, China. read...

The pin, available in a cylindrical or conical option, is designed to minimise the witness mark on the part (gate diameter from 0,8 to 1,2 mm) providing a high-quality finish. The FØ11 valve gate nozzle series is available in lengths from 56 to 146 mm as standard. It is suitable for injection of all thermoplastics, excluding abrasive materials, Thermoplay says.
