NPE will be the launching point for several new hot runner technologies. Here are a few:
Under wraps until the show is a new series of hot runners and allied technologies from Mold-Masters that the company says will “raise the bar on performance and value expectations”.

M-form has developed a needle shut-off nozzle especially suited to extreme temperatures, such as those encountered with high-temperature crystalline resins. The MHS can operate up to 450 C with a fine degree of control.

MeltFlipper Max technology will be unveiled by Beaumont Runner Technologies. MeltFlipper technologies manage the flow induced melt variations developed in all branching runners during mold filling. The original MeltFlipper melt rotation technology allows processors to increase operating parameters to widen the processing window and achieve better parts more quickly.

Designed specially for molding engineering resins, the ESP series of hot runners from Seiki Spear uses externally-heated, internal flow nozzles. Each nozzle has two heaters, one on the nozzle body and another at the nozzle tip, to ensure the best possible temperature control. The tip heater design has an on/off function which can help to freeze off the gate and provide optimal gate vestige.

A new line of valve gate systems from Melt Design Inc. have an innovative valve pin design. This simplifies pin adjustment by allowing the operator to access the pin control through the back of the mold.
