HRTC Improved Production Quality, Decreased Completion Time

A hot runner system is a combination of heated components that are injected into the cavities of mold through plastic injected molds. A hot runner system can efficiently deliver liquid plastic to several mold cavities to create a plastic product. The heated plastic moves from the molding machine nozzle through internal channels called runners, and can be transferred directly into multiple cavities at the same time. The hot runner systems are increasing in popularity, as it never lets the plastic to solidify in the runners. This reduces the cycle time supporting faster processing. Another advantage of this system is a decrease in plastic waste, as the material does not harden until the mold is loaded. The lack of a sprue system considerably cuts down on the quantity of trimming needed to smooth the final product. Hot runners work through an added manifold, which is bolted to the mold assembly. These features are contributing to the upcoming growth in the demand for the hot runner temperature controller market.

Using hot runner temperature controllers (HRTC) usually make the mold more expensive to produce. However, it also helps to save by dropping the plastic waste and decreasing the cycle time. The hot runner controllers can efficiently perform the functions of fully integrated controllers at a reasonable price. The operation of hot runner controllers is user-friendly with high reliability and accurate temperature control. Moreover, the hot runner controllers allow stable temperature control for hot sprue bushings, machine nozzles, runners/spineless injection molds, and other applications with a requirement of the thermocouple to analyze the temperature. Furthermore, manufacturers are increasingly investing in R&D activities to innovate and expand their portfolio of hot runner temperature controllers. The worldwide hot runner temperature controller market has previously witnessed a rising demand from automotive and healthcare sectors.
