Cartridge Heaters

Cartridge heaters are small, cylindrical heating elements that are inserted into holes drilled into the mold. They are often used for heating the nozzles and sprue bushings, where the plastic material enters the mold. Cartridge heaters are known for their fast-heating response and precise temperature control. They are responsible for localized heating and maintaining precise temperatures in critical areas of the injection molding process.

Importance: Cartridge heaters offer rapid response and temperature control. They ensure that the plastic material remains at the correct temperature as it enters the mold, promoting uniform filling and reducing the risk of defects.
