Plastic Injection Machine and its functions

Concept of mold and molding is quite popular in the plastic industries. Plastic has the advantageous features like high malleability, cheap in cost, high stability. So it is being used pervasively in molding. Basically Plastic injection molding is the main process for manufacturing plastic parts. Coming to the concept of molding, it is a process of manufacturing by which liquid or pliable new material get a rigid shape called a mold. In simple terms, plastic molding is a process where plastic is molded into the desired shape.

Injection molding has a great contribution in manufacturing so many domestic and industrial products. It is used to create many types of equipment like such as electronic housings, containers, bottle caps, automotive interiors, combs, and most other plastic products available today. The features like high tolerance precision, repeatability, large material selection, low labor cost, minimal scrap losses, and little need to finish parts after molding are the major advantages of the injection molding.

The plastic injection mold generally require followings in the process of plastic injection molding-

  1. an injection molding machine
  2. raw plastic material
  3. A mold.

For manufacturing of plastic injections, there are various types of raw materials such as thermosetting plastic, elastomers and thermoplastic polymers (resins) etc are used for manufacturing of plastic injections as these materials have a greater viscosity. The plastic injection machines have basic component parts such as material hopper, heating unit, plunger etc. The plastic is melted in the injection molding machine and then injected into the mold, where it cools and solidifies into the final part.

Plastic Tube Types explained

With the array of collapsible plastic tube options available, it can sometimes be difficult to select the correct tube type for a product.
Plastic Tube
MonoLayer Collapsible Plastic Tubes:
Monolayer plastic tubes are formed through the extrusion process, where a cylinder of plastic material is pushed or drawn through the required diameter cross section and cut into the desired tube length.
Monolayer tubes are formed of one layer of plastic material, which can be made up of a certain percentage of LDPE or HDPE. e.g. tubes can be 100% HDPE, 80% HDPE 20% LDPE or any other requried combination depending on what properties you require from the tube.
Collapsible Plastic Tubes (Multi Layered Plastic Tubes):
A collapsible plastic tube comprising a laminate of an inner ply and an outer ply, the inner ply being a heat flowable nonoriented thermoplastic polymer and the outer ply being a heat flowable, oriented, shrunk thermoplastic polymer.
The collapsible plastic tube of this invention is also excellently adapted for making packaging and dispensing tubes for items such as toothpaste, shaving cream, lubricating greases, medicinal pastes, ointments, and the like.
Laminated Tubes:
Laminate tubes are manufactured by using the laminate feed stock that is simply a poly-foil-poly structure that has polyethylene on either side of a thin gauge of foil.
Some laminate structures also incorporate paper.
A subset of laminate is Polyfoil. The most popular way of decorating the laminate feedstock material is by either letterpress or rotogravure printing.
Rotogravure printing is used extensively to provide a high quality print buried within the laminate structure. Letterpress printing is used to decorate the surface of the laminate feedstock just prior to tubing that is ideal for added flexibility or smaller quantities.
Multiflex® Tubes:
Multiflex tubes are manufactured from laminate, however contrary to the lamination process there are no distinctive weld seams since the layers are not overlap-wealded, but fused bluntly and reinforced with a thin plastic strip, allowing for 360 degree print.
Also, with Multiflex tubes they are able to have different material in the inner layer compared to the outer layer, which is not possible with laminated tubes.

  • Furnaces must not be operated without firing trays placed on.
  • During continuous firing (the furnace runs with maximum temperature), the temperature at the middle of top shell of the furnace may reach high temperature about 150℃. Other parts of top shell are about 70℃. Don’t touch the muffle cover.
  • If the furnace unit is connected to the mains supply, do not reach into the open firing chamber to avoid contact with live and hot components.
  • Pull the plug from the power unit each time before the furnace is cleaned.
  • It is not necessary to clean the interior of the firing chamber, cleaning of the casing with a wet cloth within regular intervals will ensure operational reliability.
  • Basically, no flammable liquids must be used for any type of cleaning work.

Aluminum Extrusions

Extrusion is the process by which long straight metal parts can be produced. The cross-sections that can be produced vary from solid round, rectangular, to L shapes, T shapes. Tubes and many other different types. Extrusion is done by squeezing metal in a closed cavity through a tool, known as a die using either a mechanical or hydraulic press.
Aluminum Extrusions
Extrusion produces compressive and shear forces in the stock. No tensile is produced, which makes high deformation possible without tearing the metal. The cavity in which the raw material is contained is lined with a wear resistant material. This can withstand the high radial loads that are created when the material is pushed the die. 
Extrusions, often minimize the need for secondary machining, but are not of the same dimensional accuracy or surface finish as machined parts. Surface finish for steel is 3um; (125 uin), and Aluminum and Magnesium is 0.8 um (30 uin). However, this process can produce a wide variety of cross-sections that are hard to produce cost-effectively using other methods. Minimum thickness of steel is about 3 mm (0.120 in), whereas Aluminum and Magnesium is about 1mm (0.040 in). Minimum cross sections are 250 mm2 (0.4 in2) for steel and less than that for Aluminum and Magnesium. Minimum corner and fillet radii are 0.4 mm (0.015 in) for Aluminum and Magnesium, and for steel, the minimum corner radius is 0.8mm(0.030 in) and 4 mm (0.120 in) fillet radius.
Cold Extrusion: Cold extrusion is the process done at room temperature or slightly elevated temperatures. This process can be used for most materials-subject to designing robust enough tooling that can withstand the stresses created by extrusion. Examples of the metals that can be extruded are lead, tin, aluminum alloys, copper, titanium, molybdenum, vanadium, steel. Examples of parts that are cold extruded are collapsible tubes, aluminum cans, cylinders, gear blanks. The advantages of cold extrusion are:
  • * No oxidation takes place
  • Good mechanical properties due to severe cold working as long as the temperatures created are below the re-crystallization temperature
  • Good surface finish with the use of proper lubricants
Hot Extrusion: Hot extrusion is done at fairly high temperatures, approximately 50 to 75 % of the melting point of the metal. The pressures can range from 35-700 MPa (5076 – 101,525 psi). Due to the high temperatures and pressures and its detrimental effect on the die life as well as other components, good lubrication is necessary. Oil and graphite work at lower temperatures, whereas at higher temperatures glass powder is used.
Typical parts produced by extrusions are trim parts used in automotive and construction applications, window frame members, railings, aircraft structural parts.
