Valve gating and side gating are combined in a new compact hot-runner system from Heitec in Germany (represented here by Technoject Machinery Corp., Bolton, Ont.). It's designed for molding precision medical and optical components, including small tubes or long, thin-walled cartridges where gate location is critical. The new Space system is suited to side or edge gating or edge gating from two sides. It requires only 9-mm cavity spacing. A new angled actuator bar drives all needles simultaneously. Its actuation can be hydraulic, pneumatic, or electric. Needles are adjusted externally, either as a group or individually. Nozzle heaters and thermocouples are replaceable. Melt distribution uses a standard manifold. (905) 951-7144 . www.technoject.com
