Hot runner is an industrial feed device used for transferring molten plastic into the mold tool cavities for the manufacturing of various plastic products. It consists of nozzles, manifold plates, flow control systems and hot valves. The plates are heated using the manifold system to keep the material in a molten state until it flows into the mold cavity. Hot runners are commonly available in valve gate and open gate variants. In comparison to the traditionally used cold runner systems, hot runners prevent the material from solidifying, thereby reducing the cycle time, generation of plastic waste and significantly minimizing the trimming required to smoothen the final product. As a result, they find extensive applications across various industries, including automotive, construction, electronics, medical and packaging.
Hot Runner Market Trends:
Rapid industrialization across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Moreover, the increasing requirement for injection-molded plastic products in the automotive and healthcare industries is providing a thrust to the market growth. For instance, automotive manufactures are widely using injection-molded exterior, interior, lighting and under hood components for the assembly of lightweight vehicles with minimal carbon emissions and enhanced energy efficiency. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the integration of connected devices with the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart sensors, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These innovative technologies aid in real-time collection and analysis of data regarding the plastic molding process, which also aids in reducing the chances of manufacturing defects and errors. Other factors, including the advent of Industry 4.0, along with the implementation of favorable government policies promoting the use of lightweight plastic molding systems, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
