Bolton, ON – Husky Injection Molding Systems, Ltd., a leading industrial technology provider to the plastics processing community, is proud to announce the release of the UltraShotTM Injection System. This innovative, next generation melt delivery and control system eliminates the deficiencies of traditional injection molding processes and creates unique value and opportunity for producers by making it possible to mold the perfect part at scale, with unmatched quality.
“With the UltraShotTM Injection System, we are re-engineering the injection molding process. We are breaking down the barriers of traditional injection molding processes in order to achieve higher levels of capability, control and overall part design freedom. The UltraShotTM Injection System is a game changer and provides better control than anything else in the industry. This approach is especially important now with massive, increased demand and speed-to-market, especially in the medical market, for example, where production risks and scalability are critical,” said John Galt, President and CEO, Husky Injection Molding Systems, Ltd.
Higher Cavitation Scalability with Faster Speed-to-Market
The UltraShotTM Injection System’s advanced injection control technology enables risk-free scalability with flawless part capability. Identical system behavior for each injection circuit provides process condition consistency with cavitation scaling. A predictable process from pilot to high cavitation – scalable to 128 cavities, enables producers to maximize cavitation without negative performance on balance or shot-to-shot variation. Brand owners can accelerate from prototype to high cavitation production qualification, thus greatly increasing speed-to-market.
Part Design Flexibility and Freedom – Mold the Unmoldable
The UltraShotTM Injection System enables brand owners to produce unconstrained, highly functional and validated parts, economically, where conventional injection molding processes cannot. This revolutionary cavity filling control and process optimization overcomes traditional constraints of pressure, L/T and difficult-to-mold resins. This enables part lightweighting for resin and process time savings and provides resin selection flexibility. Ultimately, this means greater part design freedom, opening up endless possibilities for brand owners looking to take plastic part designs to the next level.
Preserve Resin Properties
Compared to conventional hot runners, melt in the UltraShotTM Injection System experiences fewer high-pressure injection cycles, thus preserving the original resin properties. This leads to lower mold-in stress and better mechanical and optical properties in the molded part. With this technology, you get the best physical properties for your molded part.
Powered by the Altanium® Mold Controller, the UltraShotTM Injection System provides highly advanced process monitoring and control for injection molding. The Altanium process control provides repeatability and traceability for part dimension consistency, perfect balance and a more stable process. Providing digital analysis creates a measurable discipline around the molding process and gives customers full control and trend analysis of various processes resulting in improved, lower risk operations.
The melt delivery system is the “heart” of the injection molding process and is essential to mold cell performance. The UltraShotTM Injection System masters part filling in a way that provides part design freedom, while reducing risk and improving part quality and speed of mold qualification. With “Husky Inside”, producers ensure that the center of their system performs optimally, every shot. It offers unmatched OEE and increased productivity, at a reduced footprint, resulting in lowest total part production cost. It is the perfect fit for medical, technical packaging and consumer electronic part producers looking to scale up, implement more efficient process control, address competitive marketplaces, and reduce risk, scrap, waste and cost.
