FLEXflow One is the newest edition of our servo driven valve gate system where an additional control unit is not required during the injection process. It is as easy to use as the hydraulic/ pneumatic system but with the advanced features of the electrical solution.
> No control unit required during the production phase
> Same INPUT from the IMM for the sequential control as for traditional Hydraulic/pneumatic hot runners
> Same Servo driven family as for FLEXflow
> Easy to Use
All the settings (valve pin’s stroke, velocity and force) are saved in a Driver Module assembled on the mold. In its current design, this module comes with a default setting that fully opens/closes the needle. The servo-electric drive precisely controls the melt flow providing highly reproducible quality parts.
Using a hand-held External Smart Interface (ESI) – which is briefly connected to the driver module - needle stroke, velocity and force can be individually set for specific applications, including multiple steps if required.
Connected with the safety circuit monitoring the status of the IMM guards, the Safety Interface Box (or SIB) is the device that assures operator safety. SIB also protect each drive module present on the mold. SIB size depends on the number of driver modules to control.
