Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences and MHT Optimize the Hot Runner for PET Preform Production
Consider this paradox: sensitive PET is particularly demanding when being processed because it undergoes rapid thermal and mechanical degradation, yet when PET preforms are being produced scant attention is paid to designing the all-important hot runner to suit the individual product. Much more often, a manufacturer will use several cold halves and a hot one and produce articles weighing from 6 to 40 g. Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, Germany, and mold specialist MHT conducted a research project aimed at determining how the hot runner design affects preform quality.
