Synventive Introduces activeGate™, New Tool-Based Molding Technology for Unprecedented Control of the Hot Runner Molding Process

Peabody, Mass. (November 3, 2014) . . .Synventive Molding Solutions, a business of Barnes Group Inc., has recently introduced activeGate, their new tool-based molding technology that will help provide unprecedented control over the molding process and enable the production of higher quality parts than were previously attainable with traditional hot runner systems.

Synventive’s activeGate products employ position, pressure and temperature sensors within the hot runner and mold cavities to provide independent melt flow control at each individual gate.

The new activeGate family of products includes numerous Synventive technologies including:

  • Dynamic Feed® Injection Pressure Control, allowing for independent pressure control at each gate;
  • eGate® Electronic Control, which gives users complete control of pin movement and superb process repeatability;
  • SynFlow® Hydraulic Two-Speed Pin Control, eliminating surface defects through high control levels of the pin’s opening velocity;
  • nuGate® Pneumatic Control, enabling precise, independent control of pin movement on the more commonly used pneumatic valve gate systems.

Together, the activeGate family of technologies gives users the ability to mold the highest quality parts through unrivaled control over the process. The benefits of this are significant and include higher quality surface finishes, higher production rates, decreased scrap, faster mold start-ups, and the ability to mold parts with complex geometries.
