E-Series Straight-Shot ™ Straight-Shot Hot Sprue Bushings

83

The DME standard E-Series Straight- Shot (Short Style) is intended to suit the requirements of smaller injection molding machines and is supplied 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., SSBT4407E290).

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 with actual mold temperature. EXAMPLE: Given a setpoint of 500°F: BE = 1.375 × .0000063 × (500 – 68) = .004 thus 1.375 + .004 = 1.379. Please note that the above information is given as an example. Variations may occur based on mold configuration and cooling factor. In some instances, it may be necessary to obtain an empirical factor.

Design Guidelines for Altering E-Series Straight-Shot Hot Sprue Bushings (Long and Short Styles)

Always remove the .25 extra stock allowance and alter the A dimension to suit whenever gating into a flat part surface. Minimum stock removal of .25 provides an approximate .06 gate diameter (Figure 1).

Maximum stock removal of .268 provides an approximate .08 gate diameter (Figure 2). Maximum stock removal of .268 is recommended for gate diameters larger than .08 (Figures 3 and 4).

Always machine runner profile or part contour to the .268 maximum depth at centerline of gate (Figures 5 and 6). However, do not weaken the bushing face by exceeding this maximum dimension. * Resultant gate diameter may be enlarged to suit the particular molding application.
