iTherm® Hot Runner Manifold Plate

iTherm® Hot-Runner manifold plate is produced from tool steel forged or rolled blocks using HTS proprietary additive manufacturing technology.

It is a prefabricated single body component with equal mechanical properties as tool steel monoblock.

Resin distribution channels can be freely designed according to the requirements of the moulded part, not by limitations of using conventional drilling methods.

It is highly customizable to specific customer requirements.

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 over conventional HOT RUNNER MANIFOLD plates

More freedom designing plastic distribution channels

In comparison with conventionally made manifold plates, iTherm® HR Manifold plate gives you extra flexibility when designing resin distribution channels to reach nozzles simultaneously.

 

Quicker colour/material change

Resin distribution channels inside iTherm® HR Manifold plate have no plugs, no dead zones and no sharp corners. Therefore, material/colour change is quicker and with less scrap.

Improved part filling 

In comparison with conventionally made Manifold plate, iTherm® Manifold plate assures equivalent distance channels, shorter flow paths, and uniform pressure drop.

 

Higher tool productivity

In comparison with conventionally made Manifold plate, iTherm® Manifold plate enables a higher density of injection gates.
