Standard Global Manifold

DME Global Manifolds and Components are standardized worldwide to ensure that even the smallest detail provides
operational excellence regardless of where DME hot runner products are used. Whether you’re relying on a quick-delivery
manifold or an applications-engineered, custom manifold, the DME Global Manifold Standard ensures optimal hot runner
performance no matter where in the world it was built.

Key Features of the DME Global Manifold Include:


„ Flexible tubular heaters
„ Locating rings that fit virtually any injection press platen hole diameters
„ Heated Manifold Extension Nozzles available
„ High-tolerance, press-fit heaters
„ Upper and center Manifold supports constructed of high-strength, low-heat conductive titanium that minimizes
heat loss and maintains an even heat profile
Standard Global Manifold and Components

„ J-type thermocouples are black-and-white, coinciding with the IEC 584-3 International Standard
„ Flow channel sizes range from 6mm to 16mm

DME customers are assured that DME Manifold Systems are designed and built with a global standard that ensures efficient
molding anywhere in the world. And, since replacement parts are identical worldwide, they are readily available wherever

Stellar Hot Runner Systems Benefits

High Process Temperature Capability


with Precision Heat Profiling
Today’s engineered materials challenge hot runner systems with high processing temperatures – often with very narrow
operating windows. Stellar hot runner nozzles utilize reliable profiled mini-tubular heaters to ensure optimal heat distribution. In
addition, Stellar nozzles are engineered with low conductivity heads and high conductivity tips for consistent
thermal performance.

Easy Serviceability – Right in the Machine

Stellar Micromolding Hot Runner Systems


Productivity is especially critical when micromolding thousands of parts per hour. Every Stellar Hot Runner System can be
rapidly serviced for maximum uptime. Nozzle tips, retainers, mini-tubular heaters and thermocouples are all front-loaded and
easily replaced with the mold in the press.

|
Stellar Hot Runner Systems Benefits
Increase Productivity and Reduce Molding Costs With Stellar-Infused Quick-Change Systems
Now the production efficiencies of hot runner molding can be further enhanced when combined with a Master
Unit Die (MUD) Quick-Change Frame. An unlimited number of different parts can be produced with this industry-
leading combination of hot runners within a quick-change system because only the MUD Companion Insert Mold
is swapped out. The MUD Frame/Hot Runner System remains in the mold.

Combining DME Hot Runners with MUD Quick-Change Systems provides many advantages to virtually any injec-
tion molding operation, including:

t Enables molders to use the same DME Hot Runner System with many different cavity and core configurations with MUD
Companion Insert Molds
t Quickens production changeovers, often in as little as five minutes
t Provides cost justification for the Hot Runner System and/or the MUD Quick-Change System for multiple tooling projects
t Simplifies design with the use of the MUD Quick-Change Straps

Contact your DME representative or call us today to find out more about how the combination of a DME Hot
Runner System and the MUD Quick-Change System will not only substantially increase your production efficiency
but significantly reduce your molding costs. Many companies incorporate the DME hot runner/quick-change
combo into their Lean initiatives.

NOTE: The expansion factor must be taken into consideration prior to machining for, and installing, nozzle.
This expansion factor (BE) must then be added to the nominal “A” dimension.

Nozzle Plate
Formula for determining this expansion factor is as follows:
BE = “A” dimension x .00000633 x nozzle setpoint temp – 68°(assuming the mold is at 68˚F during
operation). If mold temperature is different, substitute 68˚F with actual mold temperature.

Systems
EXAMPLE: Given a 3 inch “A” dimension, with a nozzle setpoint temp. of 500°:
BE = 3 x .0000063 x (500-68) = .008… thus A + BE = 3.008.

and Gate
The above information is only given as an example. Variations may occur based on mold configurations
and cooling factor. In some instances, it may be necessary to obtain an empirical factor.

Gate-Mate® Applications and Benefits

DME Gate-Mate® Hot Sprue Bushings


The DME Gate-Mate® Hot Sprue Bushing is designed for direct part gating in
single-cavity molds, eliminating the conventional cold sprue. The unique design
of the bushing provides minimal gate vestige, without the objectionable witness
lines so commonly found on direct gated parts.

The bushing transfers molten plastics from the machine nozzle to the mold
cavity via a direct channel in the body. The plated copper alloy tip provides
an improved temperature profile in the gate area.

The DME Gate-Mate® Hot Sprue Bushing utilizes an advanced design square coil
heater and independent thermocouple, strategically located for precise temperature
control. The bushing is available in three sizes to suit a variety of applications.

ER-Series Straight-Shot™

The DME standard ER-Series Straight-Shot Hot Sprue


Bushings (Long and Short Styles), like the standard E-Series,
are supplied with a .25 inch extra stock allowance on the
front face to permit machining of runner profiles or part

taper” design that originates from under the heat source,
providing easier start-ups.
The ER-Series design can also be used when a reverse taper
will benefit a particular application. These bushings are supplied (Long Style)

with a .12 diameter orifice and a .50 long reverse taper. The
orifice may be enlarged and the taper increased to suit.

ER-Series Straight-Shot™

The DME standard ER-Series Straight-Shot (Short Style) is intended to suit Short Style
the requirements of smaller injection molding machines and is supplies with
a 7/8" A dimension. The A dimension can be altered to suit the particular
molding application.
NOTE: 5° heater lead is standard. For 90° lead, add “90” to end of item number
(e.g., SSBT4407ER290).
NOTE:
The expansion factor must be taken into consideration prior to machining for and installation of
the bushing. This factor (BE) must then be added to the A dimension. The formula for determining
this expansion factor is, as follows: BE = “A” dimension x 0.00000633 x nozzle set point - 68ºF
(assuming the mold is at 68ºF during operation). If mold temperature is different, substitute 68ºF ER-Series Straight-Shot
with actual mold temperature. Hot Sprue Bushings (Short Style)
EXAMPLE: WITH 240 VOLT
Given a setpoint of 500°F: BE = 1.375 × .0000063 × (500 – 68) = .004 thus 1.375 + .004 = 1.379. HEATER R A

Integrally Heated Sprue Bushings .750" SERIES USER GUIDE

Integrally Heated Sprue Bushings


The DME Integrally Heated Sprue Bushing is an exclusive medium volume bushing with the ability to
process a wide range of resins. Its streamlined flow channel terminates in a reverse taper gate, providing
minimal pressure loss and allowing for rapid gate freeze. The formation of a small gate stub on the part
or runner results in a machine hold-time reduction, with no increase in sink marks on the part.
The Sprue Bushing’s superior heat transfer capacity is attributed to its integrally heated design. To optimize
processing conditions for all thermoplastics, a replaceable thermocouple is strategically located near the
flow channel. The Integrally Heated Sprue Bushing has a .187" flow diameter, and is offered in two
head styles and two gate styles to suit a broad range of applications.

84 Integrally Heated Hot Sprue Bushings

Integrally Heated Sprue Bushings .750" SERIES

Operating & Servicing Instructions


The Integrally Heated Sprue Bushing bodies are identical in design, but differ in length and head style. All Sprue Bushings
feature an integrated heater; Type “J” thermocouple; 60” wrapped - 600 volt leads; right angle lead exit; and 6” stainless
steel, square-lock armored cable.
Start-Up/Operating Procedures
If the temperature controller does not utilize “soft start” technology, set the controller to 200°F (93.3°C) in automatic mode
or 10% in manual mode. Allow bushing to “soak” for 15 minutes before increasing to processing temperature. This step will
allow the unit to dissipate potential moisture and prolong heater life.
Power Requirements
„ 240 Volts AC – 15 amp fuse
„ Grounding – Integrally Heated Bushings utilize the direct contact of the bushing, mold plates, and machine platens to establish a path for grounding.
Locating Ring & Keying Options

*WARNING*
There must be a ground present between the mold “hot half” and the temperature control system or damage may occur to the bushing, thermocouple
and/or temperature control system.

Simplified Power Hook-Up
Concern for user convenience didn’t stop with improved operation features. DME
went one step beyond
DSS1512 to ensure that the power hook-up procedure goes smoothly as well. For this reason,
detailed schematics
for various hook-ups are provided directly on all mainframe back panels. If it is ever
necessary to change
the configuration, these diagrams will help ensure safe and proper connections. All
wiring diagrams can
be referenced at the end of this section.
