HTS Rod spray lubrication system

HTS Rod Spray is a specifically developed lubrication solution for iTherm® Die-Casting Injection System.

It works in such a way that spraying nozzles are located immediately behind the plunger and connected to Spray Unit. By moving together with the plunger, it assures uniform lubricant coating over the entire sleeve surface area.

It is compatible with all injection systems.

HTS DIFFERENCE

INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY

Based on MFT™ and DED technologies we produce components with conformal cooling / flow design and mechanical properties of a forged tool steel block.

SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE

iTherm® components have a big impact on cooling and material flow, resulting in shorter cycle times, higher cast/moulded part quality and subsequentially also productivity.

SOLUTION ORIENTED

Years of experience and R&D of HTS Group companies, combined with leading OEM customer partnerships gives us knowledge and capacity to help you improve your productivity.

Advantages of using HTS Rod spray lubrication

Uniform lubrication of complete sleeve area

As the sleeve is being lubricated through the spray tip at the end of the plunger rod, the lubricant is applied throughout the whole length and diameter of the sleeve.

 

Less lubricant consumption

Due to more even distribution, it uses less lubricant than Lube Spray or Lube Drop lubrication methods. Using less lubricant, fewer impurities are brought to the cast product, resulting in higher cast product quality.

 

Less production downtime

By lubricating the sleeve throughout whole length and diameter, wear of sleeve and plunger is reduced, prolonging their lifetime. This is directly reflected in less production downtime and improved casting process stability.
