Georgetown, Ontario-based Mold Hotrunner Solutions Inc. introduced a new application for its Rheo-Pro hot-runner systems: stack molds.
The Rheo-Pro iVG is an internally actuated valve gate with no external cylinder and no seals. All components are inside the unit.
Mold Hotrunner Solutions President Harald Schmidt said that, up to now, the company's Rheo-Pro has been in used in single-faced molds, but this is the first use in stack molds. The Rheo-Pro iVG nozzle is compact, using a back-to-back configuration, so the mold can be thin, he said.
“It opens a new option for compact molds and complements all-electric machines,” Schmidt said
