K 2013: Thermoplay introducing new FN nozzle family

Thermoplay SpA will introduce its new FN series nozzle family to replace the current F series. The new FN series will reduce maintenance time to replace the heater and the thermocouple, which can now be performed without having to remove the nozzle tip. The FN nozzles are available in diameters of 16, 24, 32 and 46 mm with the same standard lengths as the F series. These new FN series nozzles can be seen in Hall 2/Stand F12.

Additionally, the versions with 16-, 24- and 32-mm diameters come with a special bimetallic insert in titanium and tempered steel inside the tip group, thus allowing a wider area of contact with the mold. This reduces the risk of wear in the gate area and possible plastic leakage, also decreasing the thermal exchange between nozzle and mold resulting in reduced power consumption....
