Husky Awarded Ringier 2015 Technology Innovation Award for Ultra Helix(TM) Valve Gate Technology

BOLTON, Ontario – Husky Injection Molding Systems has been recognized with the Ringier 2015 Technology Innovation Award for the development of its Ultra Helix™ valve gate technology and its contribution to production efficiency and cost effectiveness. The award was presented to Husky representatives on October 28th, 2015 in Shanghai, China.

"We are pleased that Ultra Helix has been chosen to receive one of the industry's most prestigious awards," said Stefano Mirti, Husky's President of Hot Runners and Controllers. "China is an important and exciting market for Husky and Ultra Helix™ demonstrates our commitment to developing innovative products that help to improve productivity and drive sustainability for customers not only in China, but all over the world."

When developing Ultra Helix™, Husky conducted extensive research to deeply understand the fundamentals of valve gate dynamics, wear, and gate quality.

As a result, Ultra Helix™ can direct-gate parts with gate vestige that is nearly unmeasurable, maintaining this level of quality for millions of cycles. The design of Ultra Helix™ has many fundamental advantages:

  • Guarantees valve stem to gate orifice concentricity, virtually eliminating mechanical wear on these components

  • Provides an incredibly consistent thermal profile, which results in outstanding balance performance and wide processing windows

  • Simplifies machining for mold integration to reduce costs and shorten validation times

The Ringier Technology Innovation Awards were presented by Ringier Trade Media Ltd.'s International Packaging News for China, which is the country's leading industry magazine. The awards were launched in 2006 as a tribute to companies in key industries, such as food and beverage, packaging, plastics and metalworking. Nominees were evaluated by a panel of 10 judges against several criteria, including impact on the marketplace, inventiveness, financial results and the degree to which the innovation solves a customer need.
