To Prepare a Plastic product using Injection Molding machine



Injection Moulding

Objective:

To Prepare a Plastic product using Injection Molding machine

Equipment:

Injection molding machine Setup.

Material Required:

High grade poly ethylene

Procedure:

  • Pour the raw material in the hopper.
  • Place the die in such a way that its hole coin sides with the central axis of the cylinder.
  • Heat the cylinder by pouring plastic pallets in it.
  • When the metal is heated at 800C to 1000C it is converted into molten metal.
  • Press the lever so that the softened plastic will enter into the die and gets the desired shape of the mould.
  • Allow it to cool for some time.
  • Open the die and eject the article.
