CHICAGO — A Kona bushing on a Eurotool manifold on display at NPE Booth S2458 is an early example of synergy in Dynisco Inc.'s newly enlarged hot-runner business. Kona Hot Runner Systems' SR3 minibushing—introduced in early June—is being shown at NPE on a manifold from Eurotool Operations BV. The system starts at $2,700.
The SR3 allows minimum gate spacing of 25 millimeters and is available in standard lengths of 46, 56 and 66mm.
The Eurotool manifold is smaller and thinner than those made by Kona, and the combined technology is expected to benefit small-part molders.
The minibushing has a stainless-steel body and abrasion-resistant insert, for processing engineered plastics, such as filled crystalline resins.
