Friedrichshafen, Germany - The new Melt-Disk™ (patents pending) hot runner system provides simple, versatile horizontal hot tip processing for direct side gating applications. The key to Melt-Disk’s superior processing performance is the controlled heating element on the disk portion that ensures optimal heat control in the gate area. The disk acts as a “mini-manifold” in applying heat to the runners right up to the hot tip seals. The Melt-Disk’s unique expansion joint provides a leak-proof seal when heated yet is easily removed when cooled. Perfect for such parts as pipettes, syringe barrels and needle shields, the Melt-Disk delivers simultaneous side gating for two, four, six and eight parts per drop. This system is also available with tips angled at 0°, 30°, 45° and 60° from horizontal. “Our customers are embracing the Melt-Disk faster than any other product we have introduced in the past 8 years” states Patrick Bennett, VP Marketing and Sales, Mold-Masters Limited. “Medical molders have been the early adopters and now we are finding interest for the benefits of Melt-Disk amongst our packaging and electronics customers.” The Melt-Disk is the first such system to be built exclusively with standard components for reduced lead times, ease of integration and fast global support. The Melt-Disk was introduced to market at the K-Fair in Düsseldorf in October 2004 and is now in production using a wide range of thermoplastic resins including LDPE, PP, P.A.6 and Acrylic in molds up to 192 cavities.
