New SoftGate® Valve Gate solution and cost effective product improvements introduced at K2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 10, 2010
INCOE® introduces new SoftGate® Valve Gate solution and cost effective product improvements at K2010 in Düsseldorf, Germany 

RÖDERMARK, GERMANY - The hot runner system manufacturer INCOE® will be presenting several innovations at the 18th K trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, from October 27 through November 3, 2010. In addition to the new SoftGate® hot runner valve pin speed control, the areas of emphasis will include detailed improvements in the Direct-Flo™ Gold hot runner program and the “Integrated Hot Runner System.” 

The latter of these provides the perfect solution for multi cavity molds as a cost effective alternative to the Hot Half. This gives the mold maker a fully wired, plumbed and fully assembled hot runner system. Integrated systems are fixed to the mounting plate of the tool, permitting “in the machine” accessibility as well as complete freedom in designing the mold concept.
The new patent pending SoftGate® valve pin speed control offers new process reliability for high-quality surfaces on large components produced using sequential injection moulding.

A highlight of innovative developments in the area of hot runner technology is INCOE®’s new SoftGate® hot runner valve pin speed control. With controlled opening of the valve gate nozzles, the process offers new reliability for surface quality in sequential injection molding. SoftGate® is ideal for large parts that demand high quality cosmetic appearance. The technology can be applied in a wide range of applications.  The process is also cost effective and can be retrofitted to existing systems.




New to the Direct-Flo™ Gold hot runner program are increased length heating elements. The new design reduces the area necessary to accommodate wires previously on the outside of the heater and along the length of the nozzle and is another innovation from INCOE® to improve efficiency and reliability. Also presented will be twin heater technology and temperature-controlled gate inserts for optimal gate quality.

Numerous processors will be presenting new, highly interesting applications and methods at their trade fair stands featuring these INCOE® technologies. To learn where these innovations will be presented please visit INCOE®, at Stand number 1B09 in Hall 1.
