Hot runner targets deep-draw parts like syringe barrels where quality, gate vestiges are critical


Husky Injection Molding Systems launched its new Ultra SideGate hot runner technology at October's Fakuma International Trade Fair, where it was received "extremely positively," according to Martin Baumann, Husky's Business Manager, Hot Runners. Husky has started shipping its first systems to customers.
