All EWIKON hot runner systems are available as hot halves. The fixed half is pre-assembled with the hot runner system and just has to be completed with the cavity plate. Then it can be used with practically no on-site adjustments. A growing percentage of customers use hot halves to speed up their mould projects significantly and to simplify the start-up of the system.

- 3-year warranty if used with EWIKON hot runner controllers and EWIKON connecting components
Option for hot halves: Leakage detection
EWIKON hot halves can be equipped with an optional leakage detection system. An optical transmitter and a receiver generate a light barrier in a perforated tube guided through the hot half. If melt leaking into the tube interrupts the light barrier, an optical or accoustic alarm is set off.
