As an injection molding unit, whether an in-house in or as a job-worker, your concern is to deliver the highest possible quality product, reduce wastage and achieve cost efficiencies. Cold runner molds simply do not enter the equation since this process is only suitable for some parts, especially not for small or large parts with exceptional finish and tolerances. Hot runner systems are thus the natural choice and are in widespread use. If you are into injection molding, your best source of molds is integrated hot runner mold makers if you desire the best returns for money. These are expensive to produce and only the best choice of raw materials and steel guarantee long life and performance. Another advantage of integrated mold makers is that they design and make the important components of the mold such as nozzles in wide range of configurations, manifolds of all types, gates and valves.
Temperature controller is usually a bought out item but when you have a mold manufacturer who is also a temperature controller manufacturer and uses the best German heaters, you can be sure the hot runner system will be perfect. One such controller is the intelligent temperature controller with smart metering, over 100 sensing points and CPU embedded PLC to control temperature and valve gate opening and closing times. Such precise delivers superior results in that more intricately shaped parts can be molded with ease with minimum scrap. It works even on older machines and yet guarantees uniformity while reducing labor and energy costs. Temperature controllers with this versatility also allow use of different plastic resins.
It costs less for vertically integrated manufacturers to design and make the individual components in-house, have full control over all parameters and thus offer each customer optimized solutions at the best price. If you are looking for mold makers, pick these and you will never be disappointed.
