Thermoplay is pleased to announce their newly expanded small nozzle series featuring the FØ11. Designed to meet the increasing requirements of special applications in cosmetic, medical and food packaging markets, the nozzle features a small pitch and is now available for valve gate applications.
The new FØ11 valve gate nozzle has a minimum pitch of 17mm. Thanks to its compact profile, this nozzle is ideal for use in restricted areas and allows injection on an “inside” surface of the part. The nozzle and tip design allows low thermal dispersion giving the maximum flexibility to the mould maker to design the cooling system.
The patented Thermoplay heaters uniformly distribute heat along the whole nozzle surface, providing low energy consumption (150W maximum per nozzle).
The tip can be easily replaced for the maintenance with the mould installed into the injection machine.
Valve gate actuation can be pneumatic or hydraulic, individual or plate actuated, making them ideal for high cavitation applications requiring increased precision.
The pin, available in a cylindrical or conical option, is designed to minimise the witness mark on the part (gate diameter from 0,8 to 1,2 mm) providing the highest quality finish.
The FØ11 valve gate nozzle series combine flexibility and quality, and is available in lengths from 56 to 146mm as standard.
This nozzle is suitable for injection of all thermoplastics, excluding abrasive materials.
