21.09.2021 - 23.09.2021
Oerlikon HRSflow at Amerimold 2021

From September 21 to 23, visit us at Booth 515


At Amerimold 2021 we will be presenting the new cylinder and nozzle range for small applications. Moreover, available at our booth, some of our advanced pin control solutions: the FLEXflow Evo Technology - the servo driven valve gate system - and the new MSR (Mechanical Stroke Regulator).

The exhibition will be held from 21 to 23 September in Rosemont, IL (USA).

The new S Series for small pitch

Depending on the application, the new S series can be equipped with screwed-in or non-screwed-in (face-to-face) nozzles. The inner bore size can be selected according to the shot weight. The design allows a compact mould structure with a minimum nozzle pitch of 37 mm. In the valve gate version, the S-series is combined with either a compact cylinder 62 mm high or, in the version with adjustable needle position, with a 70 mm high cylinder. Extensive internal laboratory tests have ensured an optimal sealing and thermal profile along the whole nozzle. In addition, a special channel geometry enables fast colour changes.

The new S series is suitable for:

  • low shot weights
  • multi-cavity moulds 
  • thin-walled components

Typical applications include consumer goods, technical and electronic components as well as small automotive parts such as emblems, interior switches, knobs for sound systems or air conditioning components.

At the exhibition, we will showcase the application of the new S series for a so-called Hydration Reminder made of polypropylene (PP). Attached to bottles or glasses, it reminds the user by signal to drink regularly. The S series made it possible to meet the requirements for a low part weight with a wall thickness of only 1 mm as well as for quick colour changes. 

Our advanced pin control solutions

FLEXflow Evo: the servo driven valve gate technology

At Amerimold 2021, we will showcase the family mold for one-shot production of three high-quality visible parts for a door module for car interiors. The use of FLEXflow Evo technology ensures flawless, finely grained surfaces without pressure lines or flow marks even though these parts differ considerably from one another in terms of their dimensions and volumes. 

MSR: the new Mechanical Stroke Regulator

The new solution allows in an easy way to mechanically adjust the opening position of the pin at a fixed value managing the volume of the oil which feeds the hydraulic actuators. The control of the opening pin position allows to adjust the pressure drop for each nozzle, independently, managing the flow rate during the filling phase and the pressure distribution during the packing phase.
