Hot runner manufacturer INCOE Corp. will introduce two new products for nozzle tips, emphasizing improved color changes and optimization of engineered resins.
The HT nozzle tip was specially designed for demanding engineered resins, particularly for processing at high temperatures. The Torpedo is centered in the hot runner gate and is held from behind by crosspieces so that the melt can exit into a center ring channel. Heat conduction is symmetrically led up to the exit point. The Torpedo tip can ensure a small vestige height. This new product gives customers the benefit of the INCOE concept of maximum modularity: the HT nozzle tip fits in the end cap of the ST tip and is easy to replace if needed.
The new VIX nozzle tip for valve gate nozzles makes considerable improvements for color changes. The modifications in geometry permit a reduced time between color changes, as numerous customer trials have confirmed. An additional application use is for materials that are later plated. The VIX nozzle tip is suitable for hydraulic and pneumatic systems alike.
