Since its foundation in 1973, hotset GmbH has developed a glowing reputation for developing and manufacturing industrial heating elements and the related temperature control technology. With sales offices in the United States, Singapore, China, India and Malta, a global key accounts service and a number of international partners, the company now has a foothold in more than 40 countries. Its production plants in Lüdenscheid and Malta manufacture top-quality heating elements and customized special designs for processing plastics, foundries and the packaging industry, to name just a few key examples. hotset’s hotflex® flexible tubular heaters and hotslot® nozzle heating elements are particularly highly regarded for hot runner systems in the plastics industry. Never one to let things go cold, so to speak, the company already has its next iron in the fire. At HANNOVER MESSE 2018, hotset is launching a very special small but sizzling new heater.
With a diameter the size of a match head, the hotrod HHP Ø 1/8 inch (3.1 millimeters) is possibly the smallest electric cartridge heater on the market anywhere in the world. It has been specially developed for use in compact equipment with limited installation space, where it's the ideal solution for warming spots of adhesive, lubricant or ink. And when the going needs to get hot, the tiny probe can really turn up the temperature, reaching a scorching 750 degrees Celsius. hotset is already registering a burning interest in its hotrod among manufacturers in medical engineering and microdosing technology.
