Nozzles 101

Posted by Oliver Hourd on

Nozzles play a crucial role in plastic injection moulding, as they control the flow of plastic material into the mould cavity.

To achieve the best results, it's important to use high-quality nozzles that are designed for the specific requirements of the injection moulding process.

Nickerson Plastic Moulding Supplies is a trusted supplier of injection moulding equipment and supplies, including a range of high-quality nozzles.

Nozzles come in many different shapes and sizes, and each one is designed for a specific purpose.

For example, some nozzles are designed for use with high-temperature materials, while others are better suited for low-viscosity materials.

Nozzles can also be customised to meet the specific needs of a particular injection moulding application, with features like shut-off valves, sprue bushings, and tips that can be shaped for a particular part geometry.

 One important consideration when choosing a nozzle is the material it is made from.

 Nozzles can be made from a variety of materials, including steel, copper, and various types of plastics.

 The material used will depend on the specific requirements of the injection moulding process, as well as the cost and durability of the nozzle.

Another important consideration is the design of the nozzle.

 A well-designed nozzle will ensure a consistent flow of plastic material into the mould cavity, which is essential for producing high-quality parts.

 Nozzles should also be easy to install and remove and should be designed to minimise any potential for leaks or other issues.
