New 2017 Seiki Hot Runner Systems

The New Year sees three brand new models of the Seiki valve gate hot runner system, all incorporating Seiki’s independent gate heater technology. Previously only available on larger machinery; this change has been led by customer demand for these compact valve gates designed specifically for small multi-cavity tools.

This advancement gives these systems an edge helping businesses become more efficient and cost-effective. With a more uniform temperature profile through the melt channel helps eliminate hot spots and the associated material degradation. These hot runner systems will allow users to achieve the highest possible results, particularly when moulding difficult engineering plastics.

The new systems not only improve product quality and productivity, but compared to single valve gate hot runners are simply unparalleled in terms of R.O.I performance.  –  Christopher Siddall M.D, Eastern Plastics Machinery Ltd.
