Hot Runners increase injection molding process flexibility.
November 1, 2010 -
UltraSync(TM) synchronized plate actuated valve gate hot runners, offered in electric, hydraulic, and pneumatic versions, deliver repeatable shot-to-shot and part-to-part consistency through precise stem control. Depending on version, precision is achieved by using electric servo motor, hydraulic cylinder, or pneumatic cylinder option that moves valve stems with 100% synchronization. This lets users tailor unit to specific application needs. Ultra 350/500/750 nozzles are available.

Expanded UltraSync Hot Runner Family Helps to Remove Variability from the Injection Molding Process
Düsseldorf, Germany - Husky Injection Molding Systems today announced the expansion of its UltraSync(TM) family of synchronized plate actuated valve gate hot runners. To provide increased flexibility to molders, Husky now offers UltraSync in three options, including UltraSync-E (electric), UltraSync-H (hydraulic) or UltraSync-P (pneumatic). UltraSync technology offers repeatable shot-to-shot and part-to-part consistency through precise stem control, helping to remove variation from the injection molding process. This makes UltraSync suited for particularly demanding applications, such as those in the medical industry.
UltraSync precision is achieved by using either an electric servo motor, hydraulic cylinder or pneumatic cylinder option that moves the valve stems with 100% synchronization. This variety allows customers to effectively tailor UltraSync to their specific application needs, ensuring consistent functionality, process control and cavity-to-cavity repeatability.
"At Husky, we work to gain a detailed understanding of our customers' businesses and project requirements at the tooling level. We have listened to customer feedback and they are looking for more balanced hot runners that provide increased precision and part consistency," said Dinesh Budapanahalli, Husky's Vice President of Sales, Global Hot Runners and Tooling. "The expansion of UltraSync is an example of Husky's commitment to developing solutions that meet our customers' unique and diverse manufacturing needs."
UltraSync allows molders to achieve tighter pitch, which means more parts produced within a smaller space, and all options are configured to provide high stem force for excellent gate quality. UltraSync technology is also cleanroom compatible and is suited for particularly demanding applications such as medical. If the electric servo motor is used, the set-up screen is conveniently integrated into a Husky Altanium temperature controller.
