Compact Valves for Plastic Injection Molding, Blow Molding and Thermoforming Equipment

Industrial manufacturers of plastic injection molding, blow molding and thermoforming equipment rely on Assured Automation for valves with high life cycle and smaller footprint.

Machinery used to mold plastic into usable components or finished products must meet specific, demanding requirements.  For reliable performance, flexibility, availability and endurance, manufacturers require valves which can deliver an extended cycle life with minimal space requirements. To meet these stringent requirements, leading manufacturers rely on Assured Automation’s compact automated valves.

Common solenoid valves and ball valves cannot meet the high cycle demand of blow molding, injection molding and thermoforming machinery. Assured Automation offers the compact automated VA Valve Series, the Ares/Zeus angle seat valve and the VAX coaxial style valve for smaller lines sizes offering high cycle-life, durability,  reliability, and compact assembly.

Assured Automation Products for Injection Molding and Thermoforming Equipment

Ares Angle Seat Valve

Ares Angle Seat Valve

Ares & Zeus Series Angle Seat Valves

  • The Angle Seat Valve is a 2/2-way pneumatically actuated piston valve for liquids, gases and steam. The superior design of the piston is unique to the market, enabling the plug to retract farther from the flow path, ensuring the highest flow capacity. The dual packing design, and a large diameter self aligning stem insures the highest cycle life.


VA Series

VA Series- Compact Automated ON/OFF Valve

VA Compact Automated Valves

  • The VA Series combines a pneumatic actuator and fast on-off control valve into one body, eliminating packing glands, actuators and mounting kits. There are no exposed moving parts, eliminating pinch points and increasing operator safety. Since the actuator is part of the valve, costs are greatly reduced when compared to standard actuated valves. Operating life has been tested to well over 1,000,000 cycles, due to the balanced design which reduces friction and wear.



VAX High Pressure Coaxial Valve

VAX Coaxial Valves

  • VAX Series coaxial valves have been proven in the control of vacuum and gaseous, liquid, gelatinous and highly viscous media. The compact design, fast cycle speed and high duty cycles (1 Million +) make them ideal for OEM equipment manufacturers.
