Pneumatically controlled valve-gate nozzles from Manner International LP, Norcross, Ga., designed for direct side-gating of tubular parts or applications that require lateral injection, have been extended from a two-drop system to include a four-drop configuration. Manner’s Sidegate system comes in gate diameters from 0.8 to 1.7 mm and can handle shot sizes up to 15 g of PP or PE per nozzle. Defined pin-opening and closing movements reportedly ensure vestige-free parts and a superior part surface at the gate area. (770) 449-1820 • www.maenner-group.com
