About Gate & Flash Removal

Each cavity in a mold used for injection molding must have a small aperture known as a gate that lets hot plastic flow into the cavity before traveling through and around its interior features until the cavity is filled. The difficult part is that after the item is removed from the mold, the sprue, runner, or tiny piece of plastic that is still fastened to the gate needs to be removed. That is where we come in. 

MWES has experience with gate and flash removal using many automated techniques, including lasers, hot knives, nippers, routers and custom tools.
