A valve-gate option has been added to the Z3240 series of Compact hot-runner nozzles from Hasco America Inc., Arden, N.C. They are designed for tight spaces and can provide internal gating in long, narrow articles. They are suited to polyolefins and PS in shots of 2 to 20 g. Nozzle tip diam. is 7 mm. Lengths are up to 180 mm. Needle-valve stroke is just 3 mm, and the tip remains in the guide throughout the entire stroke, which minimizes wear. The nozzle is offered in a standard assembly and a front assembly that can be changed on the machine. The needle is standard ejector pin. Its floating mount compensates for thermal expansion.
