Melt mixing with hot runners

Melt mixing technology is new to hot runners. Husky is introducing melt mixers in the nozzle tip (UltraFlow) and the manifold (UltraBalance). A small insert with spirals on the outside and a torpedo on the inside mixes the melt as it passes through the runner system. By doing so it homogenizes the melt; previous shear and temperature history coming from machine and runner is eliminated. This technology helps to speed up color change, improve balance and part homogeneity.

Steel exhibits uniform structure through large blocks

Buderus is introducing BPM ThruHard Supreme to the North American market. This mold steel provides superior machinability with outstanding purity.

According to Buderus, conventional P20 alloys can lose hardness as machining progresses toward the centre of a large block. Supreme exhibits homogenous structure and hardness through blocks of up to 50 in. thick. The uniform structure allows ease and consistency in polishing or etch-graining.
