A hot-runner nozzle for direct side gating of multiple long, slim, or tube-shaped parts is new from Ewikon Molding Technologies Inc., East Dundee, Ill. The HPS III-MH nozzle is suited to medical syringes or pipettes or packaging closures. It uses a heat-conductive tip insert to gate directly onto the part surface while avoiding cold slugs. Tips are installed from the mold parting line. A special sleeve around the tip helps create a melt seal at the gate. The nozzle is offered in a radial version that allows gating of up to eight parts, and a linear version that has two rows of four tips, each with a minimum of 11 mm between the cavities.
