Feb. 02, 2017

Basic layouts

There are three basic runner system layouts typically used for a multi-cavity system. These layouts are illustrated in Figure 1 below.

Standard (herringbone) runner system

“H” bridge (branching) runner system

Radial (star) runner system

Balanced vs. unbalanced layouts

Balanced layouts

The "H" (branching) and radial (star) systems are considered to be naturally balanced. The naturally balanced runner provides equal distance and runner size from the sprue to all the cavities, so that each cavity fills under the same conditions.

Unbalanced layouts

Although the herringbone is naturally unbalanced, it can accommodate more cavities than its naturally balanced counterparts, with minimum runner volume  and less tooling cost. An unbalanced runner system can be artificially balanced by changing the diameter and the length of the runner.

Automatic balancing

Runner balancing can be accomplished automatically with runner balancing analysis.
