New valve gates for single-cavity or prototype molds and for production molding of commodity or engineering materials have arrived from Mold-Masters Ltd., Georgetown, Ont. Its Accu-Line pneumatic valve gates for single-cavity and prototype molds supports the firm's Centi, Deci, and Hecto nozzles. Features include up to 60-mm lower clamp-plate height, simplified valve-pin maintenance, and valve-pin anti-rotation option. Mold-Masters also rolled out its Accu-Valve CX valve gates for production of commodity products and Accu-Valve EX designs for engineering resins. Both series can be actuated with hydraulics or pneumatics and come with small-profile nozzles for smaller parts or hard-to-reach gating surfaces. The CX series uses open flow channels that provide fast melt flow and dispersion with virtually no dead spots. It also speeds color changes vs. conventional cylindrical valve gates. The EX series reportedly ensures no pin resistance to closing, and maintains exact alignment between the pin and cavity insert. This ensures that sensitive resins are processed at proper temperatures with minimal shear. Tel: (905) 877-0185 . www.moldmasters.com
