New injection mold cooling system from Hasco prevents hot spots

Hasco claims that its new CoolCross Z99 opens up a range of new possibilities for the user when it comes to designing cooling systems for injection molds.The supplier of metric mold plates, mold bases, components and hot runner systems and controls says that for the first time, it is possible to have cooling channels crossing each other on the same plane in a flexible and inexpensive manner without any major outlay on production.

New injection mold cooling system from Hasco prevents hot spots

CoolCross permits a homogeneous temperature distribution at the core or insert, as well as constant cavity cooling on all four sides for the full duration of the injection molding cycle - and it also prevents hot spots. In addition, it provides 100% protection against rotation, which is achieved through a locking mechanism, and prevents the unintended closure of the cooling channels.

Different independent cooling circuits cross each other on the same plane, making it possible to incorporate small plate thicknesses and inexpensive accessory components in the mold design. By reducing the plate thickness, use can be made of shorter nozzles, guidance and attachment elements.

Hasco says using the Z99 permits a reduction in the number of cooling channels, since it is no longer necessary to have a cooling channel in an additional plane. If the CoolCross is used in thicker plates, the installation depth can be selected on a variable basis. The adapter Z9901 is then used to provide support.

"By employing the innovative CoolCross, which is available exclusively from Hasco for the cooling circuits in injection molds, it is possible to achieve time and cost savings for both the molds unit and the accessory components," the company said.
