HEITEC Heisskanaltechnik from Burgwald Germany, available in North America from Technoject Machinery, introduced a new Miniature Hot Runner Valve Gate System with a revolutionary small drop spacing starting at just 7 mm.
It was shown for the first time at the K’2001 plastics fair in Duesseldorf, Germany. This represents a continuation of Heitec’s small nozzle strategy making them the undisputed market leader in small size hot runner systems.
Based on the highly successful flat nozzle platform the valve gate features on-site replaceable heaters and thermocouples. The melt flow channel is beside the guided needle and thus melt restrictions or dead corners are eliminated. The system is capable of running engineering resins also. These nozzles in combination with a very thin manifold block allow high cavitation systems in small injection presses.
