Felt Tip Pen Application

HEITEC Hot Runner Systems of Burgwald Germany, represented by Technoject Machinery in North America,  impresses again with innovative solutions for the production of a felt tip pen with side injection. 

A professional system for side gating was required for the modern production of a felt tip pen. The barrel made of PP needs to guarantee a long life of the pen. The writing pen is, of course, a proprietary development by STAEDTLER.

The felt tip pen as a finished product can be used in various versions for writing on white boards or flip charts.

The required product quality dictated a double-sided injection per article in order to ensure the desired precision and dimensional stability.

The computer simulation carried out at Heitec confirmed once again the planned course of action.
