What kind of hot runner you prefer?
There are several kinds of hot runner in the world. They have different price and quality. We can call the brands such as Mold master, Thermoplay, Yudo,Synventive, and so on.
For your company, which kind of hot runner you or your company prefer to use?
If you can tell the advantages in details, it would be highly appreciated.
I can say that lately, I'm assuming due to internal restructuring, timely engineering and technical support has been difficult from Husky and MoldMaster.
Some examples of system considerations are:
High cavitation commodity resins
Low cavitation commodity resins
High temperature amorphous resins
Mold Base Size constraints
Injection Point geometries, (space between the drops)
Make sure your manufacturer is comfortable with your application, and do not accept "one size fits all". Also, make sure that you obtain and understand their pressure drop data and the molding machine capabilities before the system is constructed.
Very good point.
But I am so confused. Some of my customer insisits in using Thermoplay hot runner. And he cann't accept other brands. It is quite strange. Normally, we use YUDO in domesic market. As you know, the cost is lower.And yes, sometimes, mold master also ok.
That's why I listed this topic. I wish to know more information from experts. :)
THANK YOU FO RYOUR INFOMRATION.
Reduces training and expertise costs to clean and repair a system.
Provides for common spare parts and utilities.
Provides for more consistent processing across the range of applications in an organization.
However, it should not be the determining factor when an application falls outside or to the edge of the capabilities of the manufacturer.
Your customer probably understands the Yudo system is cheaper. But please understand, the higher initial costs of the system may be more than offset by lifetime costs for your customer to run the system.
Good luck with your customers, and hopefully this explanation clears up some of the confusion.
