Ultra Helix Valve Gate Nozzle
Quality for Millions of Cycles
At this year's Chinaplas Husky Injection Molding Systems, Bolton, Ontario, Canada, showcased Ultra Helix valve gate nozzles, which provide gate quality that looks as clean as an ejector pin mark, last for millions of cycles, and are easier for mold makers to integrate into their designs, thereby eliminating the need to manufacture high-accuracy gates.
Ultra Helix also simplifies cold half machining requirements to integrate the hot runner with the mold. Using Ultra Helix together with UltraSync-E, Husky’s servo valve stem actuation, is key to enabling the best performance from Ultra Helix. This combination of technologies also makes it possible to run for over five million cycles without having to replace any moving parts, and eliminates the use of compressed air, which minimizes the energy requirements and cost of valve gate molding.
Ultra Helix incorporates a new heater design that provides the performance of an integrated heater with the maintainability benefits of Husky’s removable heater. The consistency and performance of these heaters decouples short shot balance from nozzle heater performance, ensuring that you never have to worry about balance changes when replacing a heater. This new level of heater consistency can significantly reduce mold qualification time and cost.
