Hot runner line features little thermal variation from set point
According to the supplier, the new Mold-Masters Summit-Series 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 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 nozzle profile positively affects balance and is especially effective for medical market moulding where precision is paramount, Milacron says. 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. The Summit-Series is clean room-ready and is the perfect hot runner solution for any moulder looking to reduce risk and optimize moulding process parameters with minimized variance and strong, repeatable results.
Furthermore, Milacron’s Mold-Masters product brand has developed new enhanced features in the Fusion G2 series for automotive and large-part moulding at NPE. An extended nozzle length range provides more flexibility while the compound nozzle can be used to avoid interferences with cavity cooling lines, and position nozzles in very tight pockets. Fusion G2 is now available with valve pin open speed control and position monitoring that enables improved surface finishes at the gate of the part. Options for extra-extended gate seals are now also available on the entire Fusion G2 product line. Brand new additions to the Fusion G2 product line that will be on display will include high performance water-cooled gate inserts plus some additional new gating methods designed specifically for certain resins.
According to Milacron, the company has long been an essential resource to the plastics industry worldwide. Its DME product brand has been a market-leading mould technologies provider for 70 years and represents the industry’s broadest range of products for mould makers, processors and mould designers, Milacron says. Among its offer of unlimited mould base configurations are two new products engineered to save time and money.
Milacron to host e-Store sign-up contest in its booths
Milacron's new e-Store launched in July has received overwhelmingly positive feedback while processing thousands of customer orders in North America and Europe, the company says. It adds that the Milacron e-Store team will be holding an exciting sign-up contest live in both Milacron booths. Qualified entrants will be walked through the new customer sign-up process and in doing so will be entered into the daily draws. Prizes include i Pads, i Pods and much more. The e-Store is offered in 15 languages.
In addition, the Tirad product lines will feature large mould bases with plate lengths up to 1.5 m x 2.3 m, increasing the company’s capacity to handle larger, more diverse product moulds. The mould bases are manufactured on the fastest, most powerful machines within their class, Milacron says, and use machining centers that process data faster and more accurately. The premier equipment used to make the bases is said to significantly reduce manual polishing and additional rework due to increased consistency in high quality finishes. Tirad offers high precision climate room production capabilities of plates for plastics injection moulds, especially for multi-cavity systems in accuracy +/- 0.005 mm / 1000 mm. The company's high precision mould bases are designed for medical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage packaging and PET preform solutions.
