Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd. has introduced the smallest hot-runner nozzle under its Ultra family, called the Ultra 250.
The nozzle is suited for inside gating or small-pitch mold layouts. It has a bore diameter of only 11 millimeters and a minimum nozzle spacing of 18mm.
A new material for the nozzle housing has allowed Husky to open up the melt channel to 4mm, maintaining the maximum allowable injection pressure of 22,000 pounds per square inch, said Martin Baumann, hot-runner marketing manager, based at Husky's plant in Milton, Vt.
