A new single valve-gate nozzle uses mechanical actuation that takes up very little space in the mold. The electric motor or hydraulic cylinder to drive the actuator bar is located outside the mold, so it does not add stack height. The nozzle comes from Heitec of Germany, sold here by Technoject Machinery Corp., Bolton, Ont. Unlike Heitec’s single valve gate with built-in air cylinder, the mechanically actuated nozzle lacks O-rings, so it can withstand high temperatures. (905) 951-7144 • www.technoject.com
