Two new products from Hasco America, Fletcher, N.C., include mold connectors for water and electricity. New Push-Lok water-line connectors eliminate need for hose clips and ferrules. Hoses and quick-action couplings come with and without shutoff valve and angled at 45° or 90°.
New rugged, heat-resistant electrical junction boxes and plug connectors are for connecting electric components of a hot-runner system to the power-signal cables of the controller. These are supplied with or without standard cutouts on the lid for the connection housings. The powder-coated aluminum units come in standard sizes with up to four plug positions and a grounding rail.
