Modern plastics are subject to a host of different requirements. Customers in the consumer goods and packaging fields want an attractive design and perfect surfaces with a pleasant feel. Medical technology and electrical engineering require moulded parts with complex geometries, often with minimal wall thicknesses. Items which meet these needs can only be created using very stable processes which guarantee maximum precision.
Modern production systems require precise control. This is why GÜNTHER Hot Runner Technology is making forward-looking investments in innovative control technology. The latest development from the Frankenberg-based hot runner specialists is the DPE control unit for up to 16-drop valve gate systems.
To distinguish companies which are able to significantly reduce costs and necessary resources through the consistent use of the SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding software, SIGMA Engineering presented the SIGMA Award for the first time in early November 2017.
