Welcome to Star Process and Control


Milled Groove Tubular Heaters

Milled Groove Tubular HeatersOur milled groove heaters are precision-formed and customized to your hot runner mold application. Even tight radius bends of 0.250 inch maintaining tolerances of ±0.062 to ±0.002 inch are possible. This capability not only allows you freedom to design for the optimum uniform heating pattern for your plastics process, but also guarantees quick and easy installation.

Simply send us your groove dimensions in a detailed drawing or on CAD disc. Depending on your heater formation requirements, our resulting CAD design will be transferred to either our CNC bending equipment or one of our highly skilled bending operators.

A variety of sheath materials are available including Incoloy®, 304 stainless steel and 316 stainless steel; each offering unique advantages of long life in high temperature molds, rigidity to maintain shape during shipment, and corrosion resistance. Star Electric not only delivers the heat fast to your process with efficient heat transfer, but guarantees the heater’s fast delivery.
