Among three developments from Synventive Molding Solutions, Peabody, Mass., is a line of compact screw-in nozzles said to provide leak-free operation. The nozzles use a coil heater cast into aluminum. They come in a wide range of standard flow bores and lengths, handling shot weights from 80 to 5000 g.
Synventive also upgraded the controller for its Dynamic Feed sequential valve-gating system. It now has a touchscreen, is more compact, and has new software that reportedly improves its performance.
The company says it now supplies smaller hot-half systems with two or three drops, as well as ones with seven or more drops.
