Economical nozzles designed for direct gating applications

Article-Economical nozzles designed for direct gating applications

Specially designed for thin-walled parts, direct part gating, and high-cavitation molding, Gate-Mate Lite is successor to the Gate-Mate 4 line of nozzles. The new nozzles are suitable for multicavity molds and are available in 10 lengths from 42 to 130 mm. An accurate temperature profile throughout the nozzle is made possible by an advanced square coil heater and integrated thermocouple. A highly conductive beryllium copper tip provides precise heat for proper gate control, minimum vestige, and better part appearance. The bodiless design reportedly leaves no witness marks on the finished molded part, and the nozzles are available in either through-hole or point gate tip styles. The nozzles are easy to install and are ideal for parts up to 225g. A variety of resins can be processed, including PE, PP, PS, TPE, POM, TPO, ABS, SAN, PA, PMMA, PPO, and PC.
