Ultra SideGate Inline.
Ultra SideGate Inline.

Husky Injection Molding systems announced the commercial release of its Ultra SideGate Inline hot runner technology, designed for applications with high-balance requirements such as long, thin parts and is ideal for part spacing as low as 18mm.

The new Inline option provides all of the same benefits and features of the standard Ultra SideGate, which allows for high cavitation molds with a small footprint, reducing cost while providing outstanding gate quality and offering mold makers added design flexibility, according to the Canadian company.

"Hot runners are the most critical component in the injection molding process. This is why we are so focused on improving hot runner design and performance while also finding ways to help customers reduce their cost. Ultra SideGate Inline is another example of an innovation that accomplishes this goal," said Stefano Mirti, Husky's President of Hot Runners and Controllers.

"This new technology provides the same superior part quality, speed and efficiency that our customers have grown accustomed to with the added benefit of tighter part spacing."

By direct-gating parts with Ultra SideGate, molders can achieve significant resin savings, faster cycle times and better performance across a wider temperature range. In addition, the technology allows direct access to the individual tips without needing to remove the mold from the injection molding machine, saving molders time on maintenance, said Husky.

Ultra SideGate Inline offers exceptional gate quality leaving virtually no vestige on finished parts (0.05mm vestige). By allowing for the use of a single-piece cavity in the design of the mold, the quality issues that often accompany split cavity designs are avoided, such as flash on finished parts that can occur if the cavities are misaligned.

This is particularly critical in the medical industry where safety is paramount and sharp edges can be detrimental. Ultra SideGate Inline is also suitable for complex applications that require technical resins such as automotive connectors.

Ultra SideGate Inline is also simple to install and easy to maintain, Husky noted. Nozzle tips are mounted separately from the nozzle housing into one-piece cavity inserts before hot half assembly. This approach eliminates the impact of thermal expansion on tip position which can impact balance and gate quality.

In order to minimize footprint to allow for maximum number of mold cavities in the smallest mold, Ultra SideGate Inline offers pitch spacing down to 18mm. It also includes the company's patented UltraSeal technology with three-year leak-proof guarantee.

Husky will be showing Ultra SideGate Inline at Fakuma 2017.
