Husky?s hot hits

Among other new products and services Husky (Dudelange, Luxembourg) plans to shine its K 2007 spotlight on are these five new additions to its hot runner systems lineup:

  • An expanded Ultra 350 nozzle product line will be introduced, with valve gate and hot tip options, for ultracompact, multicavity small-parts production—small medical parts, for instance. Ultra 350 nozzles provide for direct gating into hard-to-reach areas with distance between nozzles down to 18 mm and throughputs up to 30 g/sec.

  • For applications requiring frequent color change and uncompromised gate quality, like closures, Husky will be promoting its Ultra­Flow valve gate. Its gate tip design reportedly provides superior melt homogeneity for producing a high-quality ­surface finish and eliminating flow lines.

  • A new high-pressure molding option for its Ultra 500 valve gate will be unveiled for applications like consumer electronics components, requiring injection pressures up to 43,500 psi (3000 bar).

  • New back-to-back Ultra 500 and 750 valve gate options that provide a shut height of less than 195 mm for configurations up to 2-by-8 drops will be introduced for high-throughput jobs.

  • And Husky will be showcasing its Altanium hot runner controls with increased functionality and new features to improve ease of use.—CK
