SoftGate Valve Gate solution introduced by Incoe

SoftGate Valve Gate solution introduced by Incoe
Incoe introduces new SoftGate Valve Gate solution and cost effective product improvements.

New SoftGate hot runner valve pin speed control, the areas of emphasis includes detailed improvements in the Direct-Flo Gold hot runner program and the “Integrated Hot Runner System.”

The latter of these provides the perfect solution for multi cavity molds as a cost effective alternative to the Hot Half. This gives the mold maker a fully wired, plumbed and fully assembled hot runner system. Integrated systems are fixed to the mounting plate of the tool, permitting “in the machine” accessibility as well as complete freedom in designing the mold concept.

A highlight of innovative developments in the area of hot runner technology is Incoe’s new patent pending SoftGate hot runner valve pin speed control. With controlled opening of the valve gate nozzles, the process offers new reliability for surface quality in sequential injection molding. SoftGate is ideal for large parts that demand high quality cosmetic appearance. The technology can be applied in a wide range of applications. The process is also cost effective and can be retrofitted to existing systems.

New to the Direct-Flo Gold hot runner program are increased length heating elements. The new design reduces the area necessary to accommodate wires previously on the outside of the heater and along the length of the nozzle and is another innovation from Incoe to improve efficiency and reliability.
