Know Your Options in Injection Machine Nozzles Improvements in nozzle design in recent years overcome some of the limitations of previous filter, mixing, and shut-off nozzles. Purgeable Nozzle Filters now use edge filter technology offering pressure drops significantly lower than possible with traditional screen packs. Furthermore, a “purgeable” feature allows for purging on the barrel between shots in just a few minutes, with no disassembly required. Triple-Action Mixing Nozzles offer a gentle, yet through, mixing technology with relatively little pressure drop. Automatic Shut-Off Nozzles take advantage of high-temperature spring technology to offer a simple, reliable method of automatically shutting off plastic flow.

SA External Latch Locks
Ideal for molds with floating plates - including stripper plate & 3-plate molds. Positive, precise, positioning of floating plates provides mold designers and molders with confidence that floating plates will be properly positioned throughout the injection molding cycle, no matter how fast the mold is opening and closing.
ES-2 Purgeable Nozzle Filter
An easy to clean, low pressure Nozzle Filter. Filtration size can be customized to your specifications. Large filtration passage ways ensure low pressure losses. ES-2 Purgeable Nozzle Filters can be easily purged clean, while on the injection molding barrel, ensuring maximum uptime and minimal hassle on the molding floor.
NM Automatic Shut-Off Nozzle
Minimizes drool - saving material and service maintenance. Operation of the NM Shut-Off Nozzle is completely automatic. Ensuring that melt flow is shut off as soon as injection pressure drops, and then opens again as soon as injection pressure builds – automatically.
MF-200 Double-Action Mixing Nozzle
Double-Action Mixing rotates the melt onto itself - twice - in opposing rotational directions, to ensure that the melt is gently, yet throughly mixed. Additionally, low pressure filtration keeps contaminate out of the nozzle tips, gates, and molded product.
WSF inMold Melt Filter & Sleeve
Ideal for applications using regrind. Minimizes downtime, while protecting nozzle tips and gates from in melt contaminate.

DMS North America is pleased to announce the opening of DMS ASIA.
DMS North America with head offices, distribution and assembly operations in Oldcastle, Ontario; as well as Taunton, Massachusetts; Schaumburg, Illinois and Fountain Valley, California; have added DMS ASIA to our group of companies. DMS is a wholly owned North American supplier of standard and custom mold components and related accessories to the moldmaking, molding and diecasting industries. DMS has supplied these industries for over 50 years. In 2009 Dave Belleperche purchased the DMS North American operations with the intent to increase market share and begin reaching out to supply a growing global market. "We have been adding new products monthly since mid-2009 and now it's time to look at supplying these products outside of our current market territory." "I visited Hong Kong and the Chinaplast Show in Shanghai as well as various plastics related companies in Southern China last April and came to the conclusion that DMS should be offering our products and services to the Asian markets."
The new venture has opened offices in Hong Kong with initial warehouse distribution in Dongguan, Guangdong, PRC.
DMS has been appointed a distributor for the tooling data management system, REDEVAULT.
The REDEVAULT (retrieve electronic data easily) device is a virtually
indestructible flash based data mechanism that is mounted to the tool. The
REDEVAULTS' synchronization and backup system will allow customers to keep data secure, highly available and easy to update.
The REDEVAULT’s key features will allow you to create custom templates with branding, and you will always have an on board owners manual. It will allow part picture storage and most importantly you will never lose important data again.
Industry expert Jim Stuart can supply additional technical support as well as inexpensive after sale software management options.

New range of mini tunnel gate inserts
Invisible gating of miniature parts
DMS introduces the smallest tunnel gate inserts ever to have been manufactured Developed and manufactured by i-mold GmbH & Co. KG, BrensbachlGermany, these tunnel gate inserts are used for the virtually invisible gating of miniature parts typically weighing between 0.1 and 5 g.
Such parts are required to an ever increasing extent, for example, in the automotive industry, in the electrotechnical
and electronics industries and in the medical devices industry. The various versions of these mini tunnel gate inserts are particularly suitable for multi-cavity molds. They afford the processor the advantages of side or bottom gating and of reducing the distances between the cavities. The result is a smaller, less costly mold that can then be mounted on a smaller machine with reduced hourly costs. Moreover, sprue waste is minimized through the extremely low channel volume. In cases where the mold has a very large number of cavities, a further reduction in sprue waste can be achieved in conjunction with a common hot runner with each hot runner nozzle feeding several tunnel gate inserts.
The new mini inserts are basically suitable for all thermoplastic polymers, even if filled, reinforced or flameproofed, and for all thermoplastic elastomers. Some of them are contourable and hence adaptable to specific mold technologies and configurations. Like the larger types, these mini inserts come in a choice of two hardness grades: U (40 HRC) and H (60 HRC); the SGC-XS and SGC-S inserts have a hardness grade of 54 HRC. The TGR6, TGR8 and TGS8 mini inserts are available optionally with a machining allowance of up to 0.6 mm (Version 51) or with a conical vestige (Version S2). view pdf
