SUMMARY OF BUSINESS ACTIVITIES
Formed in 1988 we are the sole UK/Ireland agent for the market-leading GUNTHER Hot Runner Systems, KNARR mould components and ancillaries, conformal cooling specialists CONTURA-MTC and machined mould base supplier FERROFACTA. We offer full technical support for applications across all industries.
DETAILS OF PRODUCT RANGE
Gunther Hot Runner Systems are a world renown manufacturer of technically innovative open gate, valve gate and side gate systems for part weights with direct gating from 0.004g.
* All nozzles are backed up by the patented and proven bi-metallic titanium shaft technology which ensure a very homogenous temperature profile, minimises heat loss from hot runner to mould tool and which also protects against material leakage.
* Our energy-saving BlueFlow® range of nozzles, as well as being smaller in diameter, use up to 58% less energy than other systems on the market.
* Innovative gate inserts for valve gate systems ensure excellent gate quality and eliminate the need to repair cavity inserts in case of wear/damage - a big step forward in valve gate technology
* Valve gate systems with either single cylinder or plate actuation can be driven hydraulically, pneumatically or by electric servo drive
* We offer a number of side gate options including our OktaFlow® range with up to 8 replaceable tips per nozzle, ideal for high cavitation moulds
* Systems for micro moulding with very small pitch centres and direct gating of parts from 0.004g
* Homogenous temperature profile means we are market leaders in the processing of technically challenging high-temperature polymers such as PEEK, PSU, PEI, LCP etc
* Full hot half
