is a one-direction venting technology for small to medium sized rotational moulds, that will speed up the sintering process, improving parts surface finish, not restricting parts shrinkage and ultimately reducing cycle times.
Smartvents, like its bigger brother the Supavent, are especially designed for working in a rotational mould and are produced from a heat-resistant, flexible polymer. Having a shorter profile and height, Smartvents are ideal for application in smaller, shallower moulds or even in tight spots or kissed-off sections in a rotational mould. They only require an appropriate hole drilled in the mould wall to be installed. That makes these vents fantastically easy to apply to mould and to use in production.
However to increase the lifespan of Smartvents we recommend to install the vents inside an insulative sleeve such as PTFE tube or similar. (see our specially made retainers for Smartvent sizes)
The patented Smartvent technology is available in four (4) sizes, for application on either 8mm, 13mm or 19mm holes. The carefully designed slits on the dome end of the Smartvents will allow air to easily enter into the mould but does not allow it to escape.
These radical breakthrough vents will not require any packing material such as steel wool or others, making venting of the rotational mould a reliable and consistent operation.
· Simple to install and use
· Reduces scrap rates, cycle time and production cost per cycle
· Repeatable venting conditions, improving process control
· Does not restrict par shrinkage
· Avoids part-line blowhole problems
· Easy to incorporate into pressurization systems
