A new manual shut-off feature is available for the Melt-Disk side-entry, hot-tip gating system from Mold-Masters Ltd., Georgetown, Ont. It allows molders to cut off flow from one to seven gates in the 60-mm-diam., radial eight-tip system. This allows continued use of the radial disk nozzle even if the molder does not require all of the tips. The shutoff can be accessed through the front of the tool by turning the shutoff 90°. This feature is not available on the 44-mm Melt Disk with two or four drops. (905) 877-0185 • www.moldmasters.com
