Satellite Injection Molding System (Patent Pending)
This patent pending injection system is considered an improved version of the cold runner injection concept. This revolutionary idea deals with the constant rheological history of the compound and with difficult layout molds, taking advantage of the geometrical or natural balance. Satellital modules are arranged with the same pressure drops all the way, long up to the gate. Ideally and subject to the shape of the product as well as other characteristics, there is no material waste during the injection cycle. This is a very important factor when dealing with small size/high cavity count molds, where the traditional runner systems waste a lot of material due to long and complex injection paths, which need to be enlarged so as to reduce the pressure drops in the system.
Automation becomes very easy with these units, which can be easily arranged in single and double deck molds.
The control of the temperature is significantly improved through this technique by immersing the satellital modules in a cooling media, improving heat transfer and reducing thermal inertia between the compound and the heat source.
