At NPE2015, Mold-Masters, Georgetown, Ont., introduced the Summit Series, its new premium hot-runner line. Summit is all stainless steel, suited to molding heat- and shear-sensitive resins like PC, PBT, and acetal. The new nozzles have 75% less thermal variation from setpoint, compared with a standard nozzle using a heater band. This “cleanroom-ready” system is aimed at medical molding. It’s available with new servo valve-gate actuators that allow individual speed, time, and position control of each valve pin.

In addition, Mold-Masters has enhanced its Vision series for automotive lenses. It now offers increased flow through the manifold and nozzle channels, resulting in improved part finish.
