Temperature Control Units enhance mould plate conditions.
Press Release Summary:
November 14, 2012 - TempFlex Z976/… (metric) and Z977/… (standard) offer optimum conditions for temperature control of mould plates or spacer plates with simultaneous conformal cooling. Adaptable to any groove pattern, flexible metal-braided hose facilitates assembly and interchangeability. Pressure losses are reduced via deflection of cooling via arcs; flow rates remain same. In addition to eliminating complex deep-hole bores, design offers square hose cross-section for optimum heat transfer to mould plates.

TempFlex - the New Generation of Flexible Mould Temperature Control Units
Press release date: October 1, 2012
The flexible metal-braided hose allows fast and simple assembly and interchangeability, and is adaptable to any groove pattern. Existing moulds with inadequate cooling performance can be optimised without problem.
Through the deflection of the cooling via arcs and not 90° corners, pressure losses are significantly reduced while the flow rates remain the same. High temperature resistance is also guaranteed. The square hose cross-section offers optimum heat transfer to all mould plates. Corrosion in the cooling channels can be completely excluded.
The new HASCO TempFlex is obtainable as a 9 series system in three different lengths. It is available as a metric version Z976/… and a US version Z977/…. Other lengths can be supplied on request.
Because there is no deep-hole boring and plugging, a considerable cost reduction can be achieved when using the new TempFlex for manufacturing the mould plates.
Additional core hole variants in the temperature control program
The HASCO temperature control system offers a comprehensive program of systematically coordinated elements for the optimum design of temperature control circuits in injection moulding and diecasting tools. In the field of core hole threads, this range has now been extended by 18 new variants.
Through the new intermediate sizes M7x1, M9x1 and M11x1, cooling holes with diameters of 6, 8 and 10 mm can be used directly as core holes. Time savings of up to 30 % are possible through elimination of the need for core hole drilling.
The combination of proven and new products in the HASCO temperature control program offers the user a wide range of individual solutions for the injection moulding processes.
