Multi-Gating leverages 2 or more hot runner gates per part to improve part filling. The benefits include moving the gate closer to end-of-fill, reducing the overall flow length “L”. The light-weighting potential depends on the aspect ratio of the part, but multi-gating has demonstrated part weight reduction by up to 15%.
StackTeck’s ability to custom design and manufacture the hot runner makes it feasible to offer effective multi-gating for a variety of applications.
