CHICAGO (June 20, 12:40 p.m. EDT) — Milacron Inc.´s D-M-E unit (Booth S1149), which makes standard mold bases and components, has forged a partnership with a German company with expertise in edge gating for hot-runner systems.
The agreement with Heisskanal Technik Schulte GmbH of Lüdenscheid, Germany, also will focus on point gating and valve gating.
A staff of mold designers at D-M-E´s Application Engineering Team will help customers select the proper HTS system.
Compact and flow-balanced, the HTS edge-gate system has the precision needed for micromolding, according to Milacron. Sealed edge gate tips are mounted directly into the manifolds. The HTS flow-balance technology is available in three standard manifold configurations: 2x4, 2x8 and 2x16.
The HTS point-gate systems give direct gating into the center of the part, allowing center-to-center spacing as close as 14 millimeter.
The German company´s valve gates come in four- or eight-drop configurations.
