Husky strengthens hot runner portfolio with expanded PRONTO product line
For release 2009-06-09
Bolton, Ontario - Husky Injection Molding Systems today announced the expansion of its PRONTO® line of fully configurable hot runners. The new PRONTO line will be displayed at the Husky booth (S36009) at NPE 2009 (Chicago, June 22 – 26) and will provide customers with significantly more design flexibility and a larger number of configuration options.
“PRONTO has been a fundamental part of our hot runner platform for the past 10 years,” said David Whiffen, Husky’s Director of Marketing, Hot Runners. “Our goal is to offer manufacturing solutions that are optimized for each application. The PRONTO program allows us to do this faster and at a price that is up to 20% less than comparable customized systems. This means our customers can bring products to market faster, while achieving the highest levels of quality at the lowest part cost.”
The Husky PRONTO program offers customized hot runners and simple integration for the cost of a standard hot runner. The system can be tailored for each customer’s specific application, providing rapid delivery of fully configurable complete hot halves or manifold systems.
PRONTO’s expansion highlights include:
- Over 100 manifold layouts, more than doubling the scope of the existing PRONTO program to accommodate a much wider range of applications
- Significantly increased flexibility of plate sizes and pitch spacing
- Expanded nozzle options, including Ultra 350, 500 and 750 nozzles with hot tip and valve gate options available for all three nozzles
The expanded PRONTO line offers a cost-effective solution with no compromise in performance, as well as simple configuration steps and a streamlined order process.
