Hot-runner systems from single-cavity units to 96-cavity, single-face and 2 x 64 cavity stack systems for part weights from 0.1 gm to 15 kg. Complete hot halves can be supplied assembled with prehardened stainless-steel plates and interface mounting holes for the cavity plate. Hot half can be attached to the cavity plate and the system started up. Systems fully wired to multipin connectors and electrically tested. Pronto hot-runner systems with delivery in four weeks and mold bases for quick delivery.
Hot-runner temperature controllers from single-zone to 128-zone units require no tuning and are highly responsive to shear heat and other process disturbances, thereby minimizing temperature cycling. Potential cycle-time reductions can be achieved by accurately maintaining setpoint temperature without risk of gate freeze-off.
Hot-runner sequential valve gate controllers for molding parts requiring individual gate control during the filling process.
Altanium small footprint hot-runner temperature control system can support from one to 384 zones. Unique modular control units can be free-standing, mounted on mold, or mounted alongside, behind, or even inside the injection molding machine.
Altanium CM compact hot-runner temperature control system fits snugly onto the mold junction box, leaving enough space for robots, optronics and hoses, and eliminating the need for expensive power and thermocouple cables. Units can control from six to 12 zones.
Clamp type: Horizontal, hydromechanical two-platen
Clamp-size range: 55 to 1100 tons
Injection unit: Hydraulic reciprocating screw or two-stage with electric screw drive
Injection capacity: Injection rates up to 358 cu in./sec
Applications: Thin-wall medical and technical applications
Standard features: PC-based Polaris control, over 40 different injection-unit configurations, swiveling injection unit, large tiebar spacing. Reflex platen design minimizes deflection, enables molds to be run at lower tonnages.
Designs and manufactures injection molds (using CAD), hot-runner systems, and standard mold components. Primary markets include PET bottle preforms, closures, thin-wall packaging, and medical disposable products. PET preform molds from 16 to 96 cavities and mold refurbishments.
Closure molds typically manufactured for high-volume applications from single-cavity prototypes to 2 x 24 inside center valve-gated stack molds or 2 x 64 hot-tip configurations.
Hot-runner systems range from single-drop to multiple-drop stack-mold configurations with standard hot-tip or valve-gate designs. Standard mold parts such as nozzle housings, tips, insulators, and heaters available. Specialty components custom built.

Automotive was a key focus for hot-runner developments. 3D-printed plastic prototype tools were another highlight.
Servo drives dominate. Other trends include multitouch screens, adding materials data to process controls, and Industry 4.0 connectivity.
