Mold-Masters Ltd. will feature a new hot-runner temperature controller and a new nozzle at the K 2001 show in October.
Temp-Master Multi-Zone TMMZ will be available in two initial models, one for up to 24 zones, the other for up to 84 zones. Each zone will be capable of a 16 ampere load, 60 percent greater than conventional 10 ampere zones in competing products. The design includes a compact footprint, a single-board design for easy maintenance and redundant safety systems to protect the heater circuits.
The Georgetown, Ontario, firm also will unveil a new one-piece cartridge heater nozzle that turns the melt channel into a heater. Nozzle diameter is less than 10 millimeters with minimal gate vestige. Mold-Masters claims it is well suited for small, cosmetic parts and for high cavitation tooling. The heater, tip and melt channel are integral for better thermal control and less maintenance.
