A new line of tunnel gates designed to ensure high part surface quality comes from Hasco America Inc., Arden, N.C. Conventional tunnel gates may not always produce a part with excellent appearance, says Hasco. Its new Z1050 round gate inserts and Z1060 square gate inserts are made of hardened steel by metal powder injection molding. The inserts are available from stock in various sizes with different gate diameters and are suited to a range of resins. The banana-shaped gate geometry can be adjusted to the specific part requirements to optimize the separation point and further improve the quality of the part surface.
