EWIKON micro-manifold technology

The EWIKON micro-manifold technology is a new standardised solution for the efficient large scale production of polyolefine parts in moulds with an extremely high number of cavities. Target branches are the packaging and medical industry where the technology is already successfully used in moulds with up to 192 cavities. The balanced micro-manifolds feature four screwed-in heat conductive tip inserts each which have a flow channel diameter of 3 mm and a melt seal directly at the gate. A fully balanced flow channel layout is then achieved by placing a main manifold on a second level.

Four gates only require one heating circuit. This reduces the expenditure for control technology as well as the amount of cables. Thus, considerably less space in the manifold frame plate is needed for wiring of the system. Since a part of this space can be used to integrate additional support sleeves or domes into the plate, mould designs with micro-manifold technology are not only more compact but also clearly more stable when compared with conventional multi-cavity mould layouts. Another advantage is the service-friendly system design. The tip inserts can be exchanged easily after removing the contour plate without the need to dismantle the manifold system. Furthermore, due to the fully balanced flow channel layout in a most compact body the total flow path length in the system is reduced and the pressure loss as well as the residence time is minimised. EWIKON offers complete hot halves with micro-manifold technology as 16, 32, 64, 96, 128 and 192-drop versions with standardised dimensions.

EWIKON HPS III-MH nozzle concept for direct side gating

When designing compact multi-cavity moulds for direct side gating the EWIKON HPS III-MH nozzle concept offers one of the most advanced multi-tip solutions available today. The patent pending installation technology for the tip inserts allows easy installation and exchange from the parting line of the mould and requires only standard mould inserts. The nozzles come in several sizes for shot weights up to 40 g per gate and are available for linear or radial arrangement of parts. While many other side gating concepts are limited to the processing of standard polyolefines the excellent thermal properties of the EWIKON HPS III-MH nozzle make it suitable for technical resins and filled materials as well. This considerably broadens the range of applications. Beside the “classical” applications in the medical and packaging industry the concept also allows the production of technical parts for example in the electronics industry.
