A 108-zone hot runner temperature control system is said to demonstrate robustness, scalability, and optimal space utilization. The Altanium 108 is reportedly the industry?s largest mold-mounted hot runner temperature control system. It uses 60 percent less space compared to previous products. The system controls 108 zones on both single-face or stack molds. It?s designed with a rail and latching mechanism, as well as an interface with standardized connectors to transition between the control system and the mold, easing mounting and removal for mold substitutions or service.
A hot runner temperature control system that is mold mounted adds a unique set of requirements. To meet these, the mold-mount design was combined with the latest Altanium hot runner hardware platform. Space on the mold is limited, requiring tight integration and service access for hard-to-reach areas. The mechanical design is also reportedly built to withstand the continuous stress generated by mold movement.
