Finds application in:  Packaging, automobile and leisure industries, medicinal and electronic equipment.


  • Stringing, drooling
  • Air pockets during screw retraction
  • Material leakage when dosing with a withdrawn injection unit
  • Material leakage while vertically injecting


The nozzle is opened directly from the injection pressure and closed again with spring power. A needle which moves axially in the needle shut-off nozzle is held in the closed position by the force of the spring. The nozzle orifice is normally closed. With the increasing melt pressure exerted against the spring through a ring of exposed surface area on the needle, the nozzle opens at 200 bar . If the melt pressure drops (below 80bar), the nozzle closes.

– If the standard opening pressure is not appropriate, the needle must be modified to the requirements (modification of the spring is not possible).
– A temperature resistant material (max. 520°C) is used for the spring construction.
– The nozzle size required depends on the injection rate per second (cm3/s).

Productivity factors:

  • Controlled, clean shut-off of the melt stream
  • Shorter cycle times – increase in productivity
  • Increased process reliability and repeatability
  • Usability with increased back pressure – improved homogenization
  • Quick machine installation
  • Add-on capability (on tool side)


  • Filter module
