Components Optimum mould temperature controls rely on arcs
The devices are said to provide high temperature resistance.
To control the temperature of mould plates or spacer plates with simultaneous conformal cooling, Hasco is now offering the TempFlex mould temperature control units. According to Hasco, the units feature cooling arcs instead of 90° corners, which reduce pressures while flow rates remain the same. High temperature resistance is also said to be guaranteed. Moreover, the square hose cross-section offers optimum heat transfer to all mould plates and corrosion in the cooling channels can be avoided, the company said.
The flexible metal-braided hose allows fast and simple assembly and interchangeability, and is adaptable to any groove pattern. Existing moulds with inadequate cooling performance can also be optimised. Additionally, considerable cost reductions can be achieved because there is no deep-hole boring and plugging, the company said. The unit is available as a 9-series system in three different lengths. Other lengths can be supplied on request.
