DME Company has introduced its new Open Gate Hot Runner System, which comes pre-wired for faster and easier installation. Available with front- and rear-loaded nozzle heater options and in "A" dimensions from 52-500 mm, the system is intended for customers who want a system with minimal set-up time but don't need a full hot half system with plates. DME says the system also "boosts reliability in sequential filling and family mold applications."

Every molder knows that fast cycle times are all about the cooling, and to help get the heat out Progressive Components offers its latest Bubbler Base designed for maximum cooling flow rates and ease of mold assembly and disassembly. The Bubbler Base accepts attachment of a thin-wall cascade tube in order to optimally cool long, round mold cores. The Bubbler Base comes in two installation styles to suit assembly and disassembly preferences, in four diameters each.

At Amerimold 2012 (June 13-14; Novi, MI), DME Company (Booth 307) showcased a new, 16-Zone Hydraulic Valve Gate Sequencer, which is aimed at processors seeking greater precision in sophisticated molding applications.
The increase in of timer-based zones from four to 16 includes control over electronics to match the hydraulic zone instead of using physical timers per zone, giving more responsive control of more valve gates.

By threading the nozzles directly into the hot runner manifold, a new hot runner nozzle offers a leak-proof design without critical stack-up dimensions that must be maintained. The 09E nozzle, for use with Synventive Molding Solutions' line of 'Plug 'n Play' unitized hot runner systems, has thermal- and valve-gate options, including a 9-mm internal flow bore, with 30-mm mold cut-out. Synventive says the nozzle is ideal for medium-sized part applications with maximum shot weights of 250g per nozzle.
