The lateral cylinder was developed to reduce axial clearance of the injection system, and therefore of the mould, for direct savings on cost.
Different solutions are available thanks to a wide range of products, from the pneumatic to hydraulic versions. The catalogue also lists hydraulic cylinders that do not require cooling. The lateral cylinder enables axial clearance reductions on the mould, to enable valve gate systems with the injector aligned with the press nozzle.
- Reduced dimensions of the cylinder for minimal axial clearance on the injection system;
- Possibility of hydraulic version without cooling;
- Ease of installation and maintenance.
