the gate can be disconnected/cut from the product, RLP fitted with a straight gate position, the head planted on the top plate, while in the body mounted on the cavity plate (3) up to the top
plate (1). RLP does not move during the injection process lasts, mold base plate
moves accordance with the mold opening sequence, the tip of the runner lock pin is the part that greatly affects the success or failure of the gate runner cutting process. Greater the undercut which is the stronger the ability of RLP to attract runners from the gate, the type of plastic material also influenced for selection of RLP.

3. Bushing RLP
high cycle time mold or need durability are advised to use the bushing,the benefits include easy maintenance of RLP, more resistant to wear due to friction so it's can avoid direct contact between RLP and mold plate that can caused wears, this method will shorten maintenance time.
4. Ejector runner
