Our extensive listing of standard components was developed to satisfy the majoity of mechanical and thermal system requirements with stock component configurations. The wide assortment of tip, head and lead exit options facilitate retrofit of components in existing runnerless systems. These standard runnerless components can be utilized in the processing of virtually all thermoplastics resins, including high temperature, heat sensitive varieties.
The selection process consists of establishing the physical configuration of the component and defining the required thermal characteristics. Standard components are available in both insulated and hit runner heat profiles, but must be applied to the appropriate system for optimum performance. Our insulated runner heat profile will meet the requirements of all common insulated runner system designs, including those with internal runner heating components, such as runner torpedoes and distribution bars. The hot runner heat profile differs substantially from those supplied for insulated runner designs and must ony be used in the externally heated, hot runner system designs.
