D-M-E Co., Madison Heights, Mich., has expanded its Polimax series of hot-runner nozzles to cover lengths from 50 to 500 mm, a multitude of tip designs, and shot weights up to 3000 g. The type of gate can be chosen by changing the nozzle tip.
D-M-E also offers new Polifast nozzles designed for small shots, up to 50 g. The series comes with a variety of tip designs although it targets specific applications in the packaging industry.
In addition, D-M-E last month became exclusive North American distributor of cold-runner systems for rubbers from Elmet Elastomere Producktions –und Dienstleistungs GmbH of Austria. Elmet provides systems for LSR, high-temperature vulcanizing (HTV) silicone, and other rubbers. It uses valve gates with electrical motors directly on each nozzle to provide individual cavity control and allow fi lling of family molds. The external controller stores programsfor multiple molds.
