Georgetown, Ontario - Mold-Masters® Limited, the global leader in the manufacture of leading edge Hot Runner Solutions, introduces the new Accu-Valve™ line of precision valve gates. The innovative Accu-Valve™ represents Mold-Masters advancement in offering precision components that offer true value. Conventional valve gating for resins presents alignment challenges to mold designers. The Accu-Valve™ CX and EX designs bring industry-proven solutions for valve gating of commodity and engineered resins together with a wide range of valve actuation options. Hydraulic, pneumatic and syncro designs of valve actuation units minimize cavity spacing and overall mold size. Small profile nozzles are utilized to access smaller parts or difficult to reach gating surfaces. The Accu-Valve™ CX, for commodity resins, utilizes open flow channels in its patent pending design, providing accelerated melt flow and dispersion with virtually no dead or blind spots in the constant guiding mechanism. This dramatically accelerates color change versus conventional cylindrical valve gate systems, critical in high cavity packaging and personal care applications. The precise alignment of the liner and continuous engagement with the pin assures pristine and durable gate performance. The Accu-Valve™ EX . for engineered resins, provides precise gate area thermal conditions to ensure no pin resistance to closing while still maintaining exact alignment between pin and cavity insert. This design ensures that thermally sensitive resins maintain their properties by being processed at temperatures recommended by the material supplier, with minimal resin shear. The Accu-Valve™ EX line is also available in a liner valve style, which allows the Mold-Masters supplied transfer seal to act as a replaceable gate insert in the mold with only a small witness mark.
