How Do We Form The Plastic Items We Use?

The demand of plastic based consumer products is increasing day by day. The cost of material as well as the manufacturing synthetic products is relatively low. Therefore the need of such type of products is on the rise today. Plastics are non-metallic compounds. It can be molded into several forms. Besides it can be hardened for commercial use. The uses of molding products are common in our day to day life. We use jars, toys, bottles, kitchen utensils, accessories and a lot more. Even the mouse and keyboard we are using are made through PVC molding.

The first time I was involved in a 5S training program was with a typical American China Plastic Molding Design shop of about 10 mold makers. We had been in business as long as plastic molding was a business, so there was a lot of ” stuff” laying around. It seemed that everything had a place, but only a few knew the secrets of where it all was.

In the later period, many new techniques were adapted and one of them was the Bronze caste technique. In this process, after the wax is removed the material takes up the space between the earth core and the outside form. There are basically two ways through which casting is done. One is the traditional method and the other being modern method.

Injection Unit: this is where the plastic pellets are loaded into a hopper at the top of the injection unit. The pellets are fed into the main cylinder; this is where they are heated until they are liquefied. Inside the injection unit there is a screw which turns and mixes the plastic. Once this liquid plastic has reached the optimum for this product the injection process starts. The plastic is forced through a sprue and the pressure and speed are controlled by the screw or sometimes a ram depending on the type of machine.

I was highly skeptical of this idea at first because I had spun my wheels for so long on every new program that the managers learned at the latest seminar. Most of these programs just took our time and yielded little or nothing in the way of results. When I heard that it was Japanese, I got interested. At the time, they were decimating our auto industry and I figured they must know something we didn’t.

The first video game was released back in 2005 and was based on the newer Star Wars movies known among fans as the prequel trilogy! The game even managed to get released a month ahead of the last movie of this trilogy, Revenge Of The Sith!

The process yields precision castings which are excellent for large thin covers and bases for instrumentation. Thus saving the cost of extensive machining.
