Quick Couple Actuator QCVG16
Design for assembly and disassembly adapted
Synventive Molding Solutions, Peabody/US, has introduced a patented Quick Couple Actuator that enhances its readily removable and replaceable clamp plate design. The QCVG16, a product that was previously available only on a limited basis with certain hot runner nozzles, has been redesigned so it is now available for use with the company’s entire global product line of valve gate hot runner systems.
This actuator is easy to assemble and disassemble: The top clamp plate can be removed without removing the Quick Couple Actuator or valve pin, and valve pins can be removed without removing the Quick Couple Actuator or top clamp plate. A pin axial adjustment feature permits valve pin adjustment with or without top clamp plate. The system has also an integrated self-bleeding feature. This reduces installation assembly time and cost by eliminating need to bleed air from hydraulic lines.
In addition to the above-mentioned features, the Quick Couple Actuator incorporates a forgiving design where cooling lines for the hydraulic valve gate cylinders are drilled in the top clamp plate. This eliminates the need to run lines to each cylinder, thereby eliminating the chance of water leaking or condensing within the hot runner manifold pocket.
