This solution minimizes the heat transfer from the manifold and reduces heating energy consumption. In addition to the basic version, a dampened version is also available.
Further variants offer a microswitch version for end position detection as well as the possibility of compensating the position of the needle by ± 1 mm without mechanical reworking thanks to the adjustable version for cylindrical gate solution.
The new hydraulic cylinders also allow an easy cleaning of the cooling channels, reduce the risk of clog and, if needed, let to replace the plate instead of the whole cylinder. This solution permits to orientate the plate according to the hot runner design and to orientate the cooling plate to reach an optimal occlusion resistance.
