hotcast Sprue Nozzle
The heated sprue nozzle brings the point of thermal separation to the mold-parting surface and eliminates the major of the sprue excess material. Cycle times decrease up to 40 % and provide better part quality.
Up to 40% reduced cycle timeUp to 30% reduced shot sizeUp to 7% increased part weight due to higher microstructure densityImproves part qualityReduces porosity and eliminates costly sprue coneDecreases tool costsTraditional cold plug nozzles can be replaced by the hotcast sprue nozzleIncreased design options with new mold design e. g. smaller plate thicknessLess scrap after electro-plating finishing, e.g. improved surfaceContinuous heating from goose neck to the moldIntegrates into 50T and 80T die-casting machines
A sprue is normal with traditional hot-chamber die-casting production process. After casting the melt is freezing inside the long melt supply channels. The added sprue weight and size increases the amount of zinc to be recycled and increases production costs.
Product category: Heating and cooling devices for moulding and castings tools
hotcast Die-Casting Nozzle Heater
hotset offers a wide product range for applications in the casting industry (e. g. hot chamber casting).
The hotcast® Sealed Nozzle Heater (type GMH) based on the heating with a hotspring Maxi with power distribution offers the possibility of an equal heating of the mass channel. The densely welded sealed system grants besides resistance against penetrating material, high energy savings (up to 60 % towards traditional heating) as well as shorter cycle times and material savings (shorter sprue bar and shorter cycles by deep immersion into the tool).
Product category: Control equipment, automation technology
hotcontrol Built-In Temperature Controllers
With a wide range of temperature controllers and thermocouples hotset offers complementary products to the heating element. Aligned to the hotset-heating element the hotset-control technology can be used for numerous applications.
In the scope of the hotset-advice a unified programme of heating elements, thermocouples and temperature controllers will be offered. Thus, the process safety can be guaranteed and the interplay of the components is clearly defined.
Product category: Temperature measuring instruments
hotcontrol Thermocouples and RTDs
As well as a large range of heating elements and temprature control units, hotset also offers thermocouples and RTDs developed and manufactured in-house.
Areas of application:
• Plastics industry • Mechanical engineering • Steel industry • Chemical industry • Ceramics and glass industry • Energy industry • Pharmaceutical industry • Furnace systems • Engine test benches • Packaging industry • Automotive industry
Hotset Germany has specialized in developing and production of high quality heating elements and temperature control systems since 1973. Following the development of the coil heater hotset established themselves as a well known partner to the plastics hot runner industry by introducing the hotflex flexible tubular heater and the hotslot nozzle heating element. As an engineering service provider hotset optimizes and designs more and more complete heating systems for industrial applications. They assure worldwide trusted logistics concepts. Subsidiaries in the USA, Singapore, China, Indien and Malta, a worldwide key account service and a growing distribution network enables hotset to be represented in 45 countries.
