HASCO – Innovations at the K-Show

HASCO is presenting a large number of innovations from its Mould Base Division and Hot Runner Division at the K 2013 in Düsseldorf/Germany hall/booth 01/A23.

The Mould Base Division is focusing this year on the topics of “Guiding and Locating” and “Temperature Control”. A large number of new components will be introduced, as well as product improvements such as refined mounting tolerances for location elements. Additional to this, new connection couplings and temperature control hoses can be seen.

Other functional components with DLC coating will create the potential for new applications and solutions by providing longer service life. A new, high-quality thermal insulating sheet ensures an optimum heat balance in the injection mould.

The Hot Runner Division is focusing on needle valve technology. It is displaying an hydraulically operated Z2380/… cylinder for the displacement of needle valve assemblies, making the system easier to maintain. The cylinder can be dismantled without exposing the hydraulic drive, thus protecting the system and the environment from hydraulic oil contamination. HASCO implements the pneumatic drive for the needle valve assemblies with the Z2371/… cylinder.

Entire actuating plates for needle shut-off systems are now moved on an all-electric basis, employing a new drive and control technology. This electric activation is particularly suitable for high-cavity systems in the packaging industry and medical technology. Individually configurable travel paths and speeds help to improve product quality and process reliability during the injection moulding process. The drive programme is rounded off by a range of modular needle valves for individual pneumatic and hydraulic controls in different housing variants.

In the control technology field, both a product optimisation and a central control unit will be on display. With its large number of new developments, HASCO offers optimum solutions for implementation in demanding projects.
