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.

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).

About us

Company details

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.
