New Valve Gate System with a minimum 5.8mm Gate spacing
A new valve gate hot runner system with miniature space requirements was developed by Heitec Heißkanaltechnik GmbH from Burgwald, Germany represented in North America by Technoject Machinery Corp.
Based on the already existing Flat-Line Nozzle platform 61.041 the new nozzle design achieves a minimum nozzle spacing of less than 6 mm. With this design a complete valve gate system with e.g. 4, 8, 16 or more nozzles can be arranged in very small mold base sizes resulting in lower mold costs, higher productivity, more design flexibility and less melt residence time.
