Hasco Hasenclever GmbH + Co KG introduces a new generation of flexible mold temperature control units which can eliminate complex deep-hole bores and high pressure losses due to 90° deflections.
The new TempFlex Z976/… and Z977/…, with simultaneous conformal cooling, can offer optimum conditions for the temperature control of mold plates or spacer plates, says the company. The flexible metal-braided hose allows fast and simple assembly and interchangeability, and is adaptable to any groove pattern. Existing molds with inadequate cooling performance can now be optimized.
Through the deflection of the cooling via arcs and not 90° corners, pressure losses are significantly reduced while the flow rates remain the same, explains Hasco. High temperature resistance is also guaranteed. The square hose cross-section offers optimum heat transfer to all mold plates. Corrosion in the cooling channels can also be completely. The new TempFlex is obtainable as a nine series system in three different lengths. It is available as a metric version Z976/… and a US version Z977/
Because there is no deep-hole boring and plugging, a considerable cost reduction can be achieved when using the new TempFlex for manufacturing the mold plates, according to Hasco. Hasco’s temperature control system offers a comprehensive program of systematically coordinated elements for the design of temperature control circuits in injection molding and die casting tools. In the field of core hole threads, this range has now been extended by 18 new variants.
Through the new intermediate sizes M7x1, M9x1 and M11x1, cooling holes with diameters of 6, 8 and 10 mm can be used directly as core holes. Hasco says time savings of up to 30% are possible through elimination of the need for core hole drilling.
