Technoject Machinery Corp.’s booth (Booth 4145) will spotlight partner Heitec Hot Runner Systems’ Star-Line Crown radial and linear nozzles with edge gating. Available with as many as 12 tips, the nozzles offer no splitting of cavity inserts and no visible parting line at the part. They are well-suited for small cavity spacing and long, thin-walled articles.

Gate diameters starting at 0.4 mm are available. Tip replacement and cleaning is completed at the machine. According to Heitec, maximum precision and repeatability is achieved through thermal and rheological balancing. The nozzles also offer energy savings due to increased cavitation with fewer nozzle drops.

Particularly suited for the medical industry, molding applications include syringe barrels and plungers, pipettes, spray caps, general caps and closures, connectors, tubes and sleeves, and housings.
