Types of Plastic Molding Machine

Blow molding:The process follows the basic steps found in glass blowing. A parison (heated plastic mass, generally a tube) is inflated by air. The air pushes the plastic against the mold to form the desired shape. Once cooled, the plastic is ejected. The blow molding process is designed to manufacture high volume, one-piece hollow objects. […]


Plastic Extrusion Process

The extrusion process is a key component of many of our daily activities. It provides the tubing that distributes our drinking water, heats or cools our homes and could deliver life saving medication to a person in need. The process involves the use of polymers (plastics) that when heated change from a solid to a […]


Single Screw Extrusion

Extrusion is a process used for creating a product (an extrudate) by forcing a material through a die or an orifice to form a shape, or alternatively an extruder is used to produce semi-finished or finished products. In a thermoplastic extrusion, the material is first softened by heating so that it can be shaped. This […]

How does twin screw extruder work?

Extrusion processing aims to physico-chemically transform continuously viscous polymeric media and produce high quality structured products thanks to the accurate control of processing conditions. Twin screw extruders consist of two intermeshing, co-rotating screws mounted on splined shafts in a closed barrel. Due to a wide range of screw and barrel designs, various screw profiles and […]


UHMW Ram Extrusion Process

UHMW powder is gravity fed into a chamber and a hydraulic ram pushes the powder from this chamber into the die. The die is the shape of the desired plastic, a certain diameter rod, a certain OD and ID tube, or a profile shape. Heaters are employed on the outside of the die to heat […]


How screw extruder works

There are five possible zones in a thermoplastic screw. Since terminology is not standardized in the industry, different names may refer to these zones. Different types of polymer will have differing screw designs, some not incorporating all of the possible zones. Most screws have these three zones: Feed zone (also called the solids conveying zone): […]

What are plastic extrusion products?

Plastic extrusion involves forcing melted plastic through a die into a shape with a fixed cross section. It’s an efficient way to produce many shapes, and is essential in both industrial and domestic product applications. Since the plastic is melted from a solid form and then resolidified, only thermoplastics can undergo extrusion. The properties of […]


Plastics Extrusion Process

In the extrusion of plastics, the raw compound material is commonly in the form of nurdles (small beads, often called resin) that are gravity fed from a top mounted hopper into the barrel of the extruder. Additives such as colorants and UV inhibitors (in either liquid or pellet form) are often used and can be […]

Tube Extrusion

Hot extrusion vs cold extrusion Process

Hot extrusion is a hot working process, which means it is done above the material’s recrystallization temperature to keep the material from work hardening and to make it easier to push the material through the die. Most hot extrusions are done on horizontal hydraulic presses that range from 230 to 11,000 metric tons . Pressures […]


Extrusion Applications for Food

With the advent of industrial manufacturing, extrusion found application in food processing of instant foods and snacks, along with its already known uses in plastics and metal fabrication. The main role of extrusion was originally developed for conveying and shaping fluid forms of processed raw materials. Present day, extrusion cooking technologies and capabilities have developed […]
