October 2017 23 SERVO DRIVEN HOT RUNNER FOR ACCURATE, EASY AND FLEXIBLE FLOW CONTROL Surface quality improvement Warpage reduction and dimensional stability High process repeatability and reliability Passion for expertise DRIVING PERFECTION Byron Center, Michigan - Ph. +1 616 228 6900 - Shot Nozzle Eases Mounting and Removal from Molds HASCO America, Inc. will have a spread of products on display at Fakuma 2017 in Hall A2 at Stand 2202. Hasco will feature a new electronic control unit, for example. Hasco says that this controller is powerful, provides consistent quality, and ensures maximum reliability during production. Hasco will display the Type 50 shot nozzle from the Vario Shot nozzle series as well. One feature of the shot nozzle is the new screw-in Vario Shot. This permits ready-to-mount systems to be designed and manufactured individually to customer specifications. The new screw-in Vario Shot guar- antees simple mounting and removal from the mold and freedom from leaks. Hasco also has a new app, which is a cartridge heater calculator for the simple calculation of the individually required heating output. HASCO America Inc. / 828-650-2600 / MHS - Mold Hotrunner Solutions presents new Contour manifold hot runner systems that offer injection mold designers the ability to place gates at any angle for plastic parts with curves or special gating requirements. At the core of this new technology is the Rheo-Pro Swing Lock, a fully adjustable mechanism that allows each nozzle to securely engage the hot runner manifold at any angle. In combination with new cooling-free Black Box valve gate technology, Contour hot runners offer a solution for angled gating applications such as contoured automotive plastic parts. The system enables perpendicular melt injection into the curved surface of a cavity for uniform cooling around the gate area for high-quality gating results. The hot runner manifolds also stay flat, which the company says eases mold integration. The valve gate systems are available with gate di- ameters from 2–6 mm and melt channels ranging from 10–22 mm.
