Electrically actuated valve gate offers precision control of pin acceleration, location


New valve gate hot runner molding technology precisely controls each valve pin's position, acceleration, velocity, and stroke, offering potential benefits to multimaterial applications, sequential/cascading molding, and premium cosmetic surfaces. Synventive's patented eGate high-performance electric valve-gate system is well suited for molding applications with electric molding machines, clean room environments, optical parts, and any application where precision and control are critical.

Synventive says control and monitoring of the open and closed positions of the valve pins can be held within 0.01mm, with similar precision control over velocities and acceleration. The controller is available in 4- or 8-zone configurations, for use up to 64 individual zones of control, with a pendant control available for 'on-the-fly' remote valve-pin adjustment.
