Custom-engineered runnerless molding systems and components including fully assembled, wired, and thermally tested Modu-System hot-half plate assemblies; thermodynamically balanced manifolds and gate valves; standard, custom, and single-valve nozzles; and universally compatible modular hot-runner zone mold-temperature controllers. Manifold systems available in three different types of steel and three standard thicknesses engineered to customer specifications. Supplied in standard gun-drilled form with an edgeless design to maximize injection velocity, or self-cleaning for use with difficult plastic formulations such as PVC and PBT. Technical support and applications assistance.
Molds that break speed records for specific applications; hot runners for medical, packaging, and automotive parts; temperature and valve-gate controllers; and standardized mold components constitute a large grab-bag of news in the tooling category for injection molding at the Dusseldorf show.
More productivity with less energy consumption and capital investment; more operations in the machine or manufacturing cell with less time, labor, energy, and capital—these were the common themes of injection molding exhibits at October’s K 2013 show.
Among the many attractions in injection molding exhibits at NPE2012 were more intelligent robots with higher speeds and payload capacities
Tooling innovations at NPE focused primarily on multi-cavity closure and medical applications, though there was also a substantial emphasis on large automotive and appliance parts.
Auxiliary equipment takes in a broad range of functions, from materials preparation to post-mold finishing.
Show goers will see an electric injection machine in nearly every press maker’s booth this year, and electric/hydraulic hybrids in several.
Although we previewed a number of new developments in hot-runners at NPE 2009 in our May and June issues, the big show in Chicago served up still more new offerings for PET preforms, medical parts, caps and closures, and more.
If a better machine can help your company beat challenging economic conditions, you’ll probably find it at NPE. And finding it will be easier, thanks to our editors’ efforts to sift out of some 2000 exhibits the most significant news in injection and blow molding, extrusion, compounding, and thermoforming.
Injection MoldingHybrid Press Has Electric ClampNew injection presses that combine servo-electric and hydraulic movements to achieve high performance with energy efficiency will be discussed by Arburg Inc., Newington, Conn.
Five years ago, in-mold labeling was just gaining traction among North American injection molders as a one-step approach to decorating without secondary operations.
A new hot-runner temperature controller for six to 256 zones was unveiled at the recent Chinaplas show in Shanghai by Yudo Co.

Yudo Inc., a Korean-based supplier of hot-runner systems, has moved its U.S. headquarters from Newbury Park, Calif., to Columbus, Ohio.
Electrically driven valve pins, a low-cost alternative to valve-gating, mold-mounted temperature controllers, and new components for fast color changes are some of a host of new components and systems unveiled at the giant NPE 2006 show in Chicago this past June. (Some brand-new introductions since the show are also included in this report.) The news includes runnerless products aimed at everything from micromolding to shot weights up to 17.4 lb.
Thermal and mechanical testers, color and appearance sensors, vision inspection devices and CMMs—the NPE had them all in more compact, economical, and easy-to-use models.
Energy-saving all-electric machines will continue to be a big draw at NPE, where new designs or upgraded models will be found in virtually every press maker’s booth.
Closer cavity spacing, in-press serviceability, improved valve gates, smarter controls, quick-ship standard manifolds, and Internet e-commerce were leading themes in hot runners at the big show in Chicago.Hot-runner components were one of the largest categories of injection molding products exhibited at the triennial NPE show in June.
