2010 Plastics Industry Awards winner delivers 400% color change improvement using Mold-Masters’ E-Drive Hot Runner

| Closure moulds | Mold-Masters | Georgetown, ON, Canada

Mold-Masters’ fully scalable E-Drive hot runner configured as a 64 cavity Sprint dual synchro plate system will be demonstrated at R.P. Toyo’s K-Show exhibit, hall #13, booth D90. Visitors will see a cylindrical shut-off valve gate system running CSD closures at sub 5 seconds fully inspected, engraved and packed into a box. The enabler of this system performance is the Mold-Masters Sprint valve gate nozzle, iFlow manifold technology and Mold-Masters’ E-Drive servo driven pin actuation system. The combination of these technologies allows customers to mold CSD closures at unprecedented rates with pristine gate quality ensured. The Sprint nozzle design accurately controls temperature in the gate area while allowing for ample decompression and precise guiding of the valve pin into the gate. The iFlow manifold delivers rheologically equivalent melt to each cavity, allowing for reduced clamp tonnage, more processing window and longer tool life. The E-Drive pin actuation ensures that all 64 valve pins open and close at exactly the same time with speeds 5 times faster than pneumatic. Client feedback on their success using E-Drive includes color changes up to 400% faster than comparable tools, defect rates approaching zero and a 15.5% better than requested cycle time improvement. Mold-Masters at K show 2010: hall 1, booth A39!
