Melt-Disk with a selective shutoff function
Selective Shutoff as Needed
The patented Melt-Disk from Mold-Masters Europa GmbH, Baden-Baden, Germany, is now available with a shutoff function for individual cavities. The technology is used for direct side gating of long, cylindrical parts, e.g. pipettes. The Melt-Disk thus functions as an alternative to semi-hot-runner systems that would otherwise be used for applications of this kind. The original 8-gate configuration was criticized by users, because it was not possible to shut off an individual cavity when defects occurred. In the new version, users can actuate this function from the front of the mold. Turning the shutoff mechanism 90° is enough to activate or deactivate any individual cavity.
