As Seen In Plastics Technology
Precisely Managed Melt Delivery Moved into the Hot Runner
Husky says its new UltraShot injection system miniaturizes the shooting-pot concept of a traditional two-stage injection system—putting it within the mold—to create proximity to the gate that all but eliminates pressure drop.
New Melt Delivery and Control System Enables Design Freedom
Husky says its UltraShot Injection System liberates part design from the requirements of the injection molding process so that parts completed with other processes or post-mold assembly can now be produced in a single injection molding cycle.
Running Cold to Hot: Tipping Point to Convert to a Hot Runner System
As the original melt-delivery system, cold runners still have their place in injection molding, but when demand for a plastic part—and required production—rise, the move to a hot runner can unlock myriad benefits.
