Hot Runner Performance & Reliability in One Complete Package Every Velocity system is engineered to provide better part quality and faster cycle times. With over 1,500,000 nozzles in the field, Velocity technology has set the benchmark in hot runner performance and reliability. MOST RELIABLE The industry’s most thermally precise and reliable nozzle platform uses proprietary in-house heating elements, patented multi-material tip geometries and unique heater brazing technology.

MORE VERSATILE Velocity nozzles come in 4 standard sizes, in lengths from 27mm to 220mm and in 6 standard gate configurations including hot tip, valve gate and sprue gate. No other nozzle platform provides the flexibility to put the gate in difficult to mold locations while offering the best steel and cooling conditions.

Gating & Manifold Performance UNIFORM HEATING FOR OPTIMAL GATE CONTROL

ROBUST AND DURABLE NOZZLES AND TIPS

The brazed heater (1) delivers uniform heat from flange to gate, uses 20% less power, never shifts and lasts the life of the tool. Using a patented combination of materials in the gate seal area (2), Velocity creates optimal thermal conditions for the resin while ensuring mechanical integrity.

Velocity nozzles withstand up to 2,000 bar (29,000 psi) injection pressures. The flange (3) is designed to reduce heat loss from the back of the nozzle while providing a robust seal-off. A sealed terminal end (4) prevents degradation and corrosion of the heater wiring. The innovative Visco-Seal™ (5) creates secondary leakage protection between the gate seal and cavity. Removeable and robust tips and gate seals (6) machined from innovative materials make in-press service quick and easy.

UNIFORM MANIFOLD HEATING Every manifold is analyzed to ensure that the heating is uniform over its entire surface. This aids fill balance and prevents any degradation of the material. Integrated heaters provide energy-efficient and long-lasting heater performance.
