ABOUT THE EVENT
Come and see at Surtechno facility the Live Demo of the new door trim family mold mounted on a 2300 tons Krauss Maffei injection molding machine.
The precise and responsive FLEXflow technology allows for low-warpage, defect-free parts with finely grained surfaces.
The part will be produced with a PP Near to Prime recycled compound (Talc reinforced) from Ravago Group.
Additionally, Krauss Maffei will showcase a KM 120-540 PX electrical machine at the event.
September 10th, 2020, Surtechno Headquarters in Pelt

One-shot production: yes, you can!
FLEXflow Technology manages the individual control of the servo-electric drives for all the eight hot runner valve gate systems used in this application.
This means each individual valve pin can be finely regulated to optimize the appropriate pressures, flow rates and volumes of the melt in all three cavities.
This precise control prevents overfeeding and flash formation on smaller parts while all cavities are filled at the same time.
The final result? Flawless, finely grained surfaces
The use of the FLEXflow technology ensures flawless, finely grained surfaces without pressure lines or flow marks even though these parts differ considerably from one another in terms of their dimensions and volumes.
Thanks to the ability to precisely control the pressure on each nozzle during the holding pressure phase, the exact shrinkage of the desired part can be attained in each individual cavity.
Regarding the cross-sections, the hot runner system is designed so material and color changes can be performed quickly.
