MeltFlipper® Single-Axis technologies provide the ability to manage plastic flow by creating shear symmetry through melt rotations in one axis. The high sheared laminates are rotated around the perimeter of the melt stream to strategic locations throughout the runner.
Single-Axis technologies are mainly used to provide a root cause solution to filling imbalances in multi-cavity or multi-gated single-cavity molds. MeltFlipper® Single-Axis also provides intra-cavity flow control to ensure that the high sheared material enters a cavity symmetrically to further improve part quality.
MeltFlipper Single-Axis designs provide solutions to molding issues by providing fill balance, dimensional stability, wider process windows and faster cycle times. MeltFlipper® Single-Axis technologies also have benefits in extrusion and blow molding applications.
