They're Worse Than You'd Think

As tempting as it can be to purchase something that someone has “on the shelf” or is considerably cheaper than industry norms, we have yet to run into a client who is glad they made that decision when we stand with them on the shop floor, a machine down, and a red-faced plant manager demanding to know when the machine will be back up.

Herzog: The Gold Standard in Shutoff Nozzles
Herzog Nozzles

Herzog AG has long been considered the gold standard in positive shutoff mechanisms for injection molding. Herzog’s shutoff nozzles are suited for a variety of applications including Thermoset, Elastomer, MuCell foam, Structural foam, and other high-flow or oxygen-sensitive polymers, and offer spring, pneumatic, and hydraulic actuation.


If you run any of the applications listed above, have a vertical injection unit, run sprue break, or simply experience excessive drool on a particular job, Herzog is likely a very good solution for you that will ensure minimum material loss and degradation.


MSI is a fully-licensed Herzog distributor. Herzog’s Swiss-manufactured nozzles are custom made to your dimensional specifications and are available with a host of options including internal filters, mixing elements, and internally heated bodies.

As your Herzog distributor, we also sell and service replacements for any nozzles that came as original equipment on your press.

Contact us or call us at (248) 585-8120 for more information and pricing.
