Chinaplas Breaking 600x400
Husky Injection Moulding Systems has introduced two new products to its hot runners and controllers portfolio which it is launching to market at Chinaplas 2014.
The new Altanium Matrix2 temperature controller and Unify Manifold Systems technology are are to be "innovative products and services" that Husky has developed in as part of a strategic drive to solve "key challenges" facing injection moulders.
"Our new Unify Manifold Systems and Matrix2 hot runner controller continue to prove that we are world leaders in the industry by continually driving innovation," said Gerardo Chiaia, Husky's President of Hot Runners. "Customers continue to benefit from our technology with improved gate quality, balance, ease of use and maintainability."
The Matrix2 controller is said to provide additional functionality to other controllers in Husky's range, as well as offering an integrated and intelligent platform for two to 254 zones of control for improved part quality and increased uptime.
"The introduction of Matrix2 to Husky's Altanium family of controllers allows us to provide premium performance and functionality over our competitors," commented Matthew Cummings, Husky's Product Manager for Altanium. "Maxtrix2 is designed with a new intelligent feature set, which makes it smarter and more intuitive than other controllers on the market. This enables a more customised moulding solution and helps customers achieve the most consistent, repeatable and accurate temperature control possible, regardless of their moulding needs."
The Unify Manifold Systems technology is said to provide a simple, one-step installation of a hot runner manifold into a mould without the need to pre-heat the system. This, says Husky, provides a saving on installation time of up to 70 percent. The Unify system is said to allow for simple hot runner maintenance, therefore reducing downtime. It also benefits from Husky sealing technology for continuous leak-proof operation.
"We are very excited to introduce the Unify Manifold Systems to our customers in Asia Pacific. With this new technology, we are responding to our customers' need for a hot runner with the easiest possible installation," explained Chiaia.
