The FH hot-runner mold from Meusburger, consisting of a complete mold base with hot-runner system, can be customized with just a few clicks via a specially developed configurator. The 3D data are also available for download.
The configurator allows the designer to concentrate on other matters during mold design, saving valuable time and cost. Meusburger’s hot-runner experts will carry out a technical inspection of the FH hot runner mold and submit suitable modification suggestions or, upon request, a custom offer.
Meusburger also recently introduced some new functions for the FH configurator. Both the nozzle range and selection of plastics have been expanded. Shot weights from 0.5 to 500 g per nozzle are possible. The most suitable nozzle is preselected, but all nozzles within the range of the specified shot weight can be accommodated. Likewise, the most suitable gate type for the selected polymer is preselected, but the user always has the option of choosing a different gate. If the combination of plastic and gate assembly results in a recommendation for an insulating cap, it can be ordered directly. In addition, the offset of the cooling hole to the manifold cutout can be adjusted in the x and y axis with the same value from 0 to 25 mm. The result is a compact mold that is optimally matched to the configured hot-runner system, said Meusburger.
