Ready for immediate use: the HASCO “Hot Half” carefree package
The HASCO Hot Half H4400/… is a fully tested and proven all-in package which ensures that users are always on the safe side. Working in close cooperation with the customer, the package is designed and manufactured specifically for the application in question and delivered punctually. The Hot Half comes fully equipped with all the hot runner components, nozzles, and clamping, bolster and nozzle retainer plates, as well as with standard components and connectors and is thus ready for immediate use.
All the customer has to do is to adjust the fully wired-up and ready-to-connect system to the fixed mould plate. Once the simple process of connecting the Hot Half to the control and supply peripherals has been completed, reliable production can start straightaway. All the electric components and, where appropriate, the pneumatic or hydraulic drives have been tested by HASCO, making sure that they function properly and are correctly wired up. In addition, all the relevant dimensions such as the hole spacing for nozzles, nozzle protrusion and nozzle tip position, as well as the guides and centring devices, are checked in the assembled state on coordinate measuring machines. All the test results are documented in the corresponding reports. HASCO supplies detailed documentation with each Hot Half, including system drawings, parts lists, installation and maintenance instructions and a test report on all the heating units and thermocouples.
The Hot Halves are additionally equipped with a USB 2.0 data storage device which contains all the available information, such as drawings, parts lists and measurement protocols. This has the advantage that the data is always on the Hot Half, regardless of where the mould is currently being used, and can thus always be called up directly. Customer-specific information on the mould or the injection parameters can similarly be saved there. As an information storage device to accompany the mould, the Screw Memory A5805 can be used to archive all the mould and/or article-specific data directly in your mould. It can then be read out at any time without need for a data cable.
The Hot Half concept allows mouldmakers and injection moulders to considerably shorten design and production times for hot runner moulds. The design outlay at the customer’s company is kept to a minimum, and the time taken to manufacture the mould is considerably reduced. Immediately after coordinating matters with the application technology department, the Hot Half is designed to the customer’s specifications, and the CAD data made available in the desired format within a matter of days. HASCO delivers the complete Hot Half within three to six weeks depending on the complexity of the mould in question. During this time, the mouldmaker can focus on the inserts and the details of the mould. Having the work steps conducted in parallel releases mouldmaking resources and boosts productivity.
HASCO assumes the full manufacturing risk for the H4400/... Hot Half and, through its finely tuned assembly of the nozzles and its precise alignment of all the parts, ensures a leak-free system with perfectly functioning components. The consistent use of HASCO connector components and HASCO control technology in combination with the Hot Halves further increases the guarantee period. Mouldmaking companies and converters are assured of functionally reliable hot runner technology, guaranteed by the manufacturer, together with greater cost-efficiency.
HASCO provides a guarantee of correct functioning, combines cost-efficiency with rapid, worldwide service and thus permits more efficient and reliable work. Hot runner advisers and application technicians are available to assist customers worldwide and to configure Hot Halves in the optimum manner for the application in question.
