Hot Runner System for Medical Micro Parts
In response to the demands for ever more compact hot runner systems for the production of plastic components used in the medical and electronics industry Heitec Hot Runner Systems introduces new hot tip designs. Heitec Heißkanaltechnik GmbH from Burgwald, Germany is represented in North America by Technoject Machinery Corp.
Until 2011 a 6.0 mm cavity spacing was considered to be the smallest possible using individually controllable hot tip nozzles. Continuous development of the Flat-Line nozzle series now allow a distance from 4.5 mm. This sets new standards for space utilization and maximum number of cavities per mold.
