HRS Flow presents for the first time its new ECOflow hot runner system designed specifically for high energy efficiency. Compared with systems of conventional design, the energy consumption can be lowered by around 25 %. At the same time, a very homogeneous temperature distribution is attained in the hot runner, resulting in high-quality injection-molded parts.
Because it has been possible to significantly reduce the weight and volume of the ECOflow hot runner, the energy saving when e.g. injection molding large-format parts for the automotive industry such as bumpers, wheel arch liners, instrument panels etc. is particularly marked. Energy efficiency and a stable thermal profile for the hot runner systems have always been at the heart of HRSflow's new products and further developments.
The company's know-how and expertise in thermal analysis that has been amassed over many years also provided the development basis for the new ECOflow hot runner system. The aim was to significantly reduce energy consumption without impairing the performance needed for injection molding. To do this, the dimensions of the hot runner system and the materials used for it were analyzed and optimized.
