The gate types of pipe fitting mold
As we all know, there are two main gate types of pipe fitting mould. They are submarine gate, edge gate. Pipe fitting mould makers choose the gate types according to the advantage of the gates.
The submarine gate and edge gate belongs to the cold runner. And when producing, the two kinds of gates will bring waste. So what’s the difference between a submarine gate and an edge gate? The submarine gate takes advantage of that the product surface will be a good look. What’s more, the submarine gate can separate the gate from the product. However, its gate is very small and the product cycle time is long.
So how about an edge gate? Its gate is a little bigger than the submarine gate. The product cycle time is short. But the gate cannot be separated from the product, so it needs a worker to cut. And the product surface looks not so well.
In a word, we often choose submarine gate when the bore is small. And when the bore of the gate is bigger than 110mm, we choose the edge gate.
