The 994 HYDRA is a miniaturised in-mould labelling pinning system. It is especially useful on applications where small items are being moulded. For example, yoghurt pots and drinks containers can be of a small diameter and require the pinning heads to be small also.

The standard system comprises a Resistively Coupled Distributor with either four or six pinner cables. It has a mounting footprint of 50mm x 86mm. The resistive coupling of the distributor controls arcing and provides independent operation of the pinning heads.
