The evening will include a brief overview of Hot Runners but then get into best practices of Thermocouples, Thermocouple Placement, why it’s in the Hot Runner purchaser’s best interest to answer as many of the questions as possible when specifying a Hot Runner, and the risks of not doing so. Greg will discuss the pros and cons of different construction options such as threaded hot drops vs supporting ring hot drops on manifolds, why it’s best to follow startup and shutdown procedures, and more.
