Plastic Molding Industry

PLASTICS IN BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION

Materials With Muscle

The building and construction industry is the nation’s second-largest consumer of plastics. Only packaging creates more demand for plastic molding materials today. In the construction of all types of buildings – for pipes, valves and fittings, heavy-duty uses and decorative touches, inside and outside – plastics are building a reputation for durability, aesthetics, easy handling and high performance. plastic molding parts made in plastics, to make plastic molding products that need plastic mold in advance.

Hard at Work

In building construction, plastics abound in plumbing fixtures, siding, flooring, insulation, panels, doors, windows, glazing, bathroom units, gratings, railings and a growing list of both structural and interior or decorative uses.

For pipes, valves and fittings, plastics offer superior corrosion resistance and are lighter, easier to install, and more cost-effective than their alternatives. Impervious to chemicals and sulfur-bearing compounds, plastic piping safely transports everything from fresh water to salt water, and from crude oil to laboratory waste.

These qualities also have combined with plastics’ high strength-to-weight ratio to produce materials for bridge construction, including tough reinforcement rods, nonskid surfacing and quickly installed replacement decking.

For commercial buildings that contain sensitive electronic equipment, plastics can provide highly protective housing that does not interfere with radio frequency or magnetic waves.

From the home to the workplace – and maybe even on a bridge in between – plastics are on the job, to find plastic mold company to support you will be much easy to make plastics buildings and goods.

Making Themselves at Home

Changing demographics and the high cost of housing have created new Images of home for many Americans. These new Images, in turn, have created new trends, and these new trends have created new and additional uses of plastics in residential construction.

Many households today consist of single working people, small families and couples without children – people who often don’t need or can’t afford a large home. As a result, the current trend is toward smaller, less costly multifamily dwellings, such as townhouses and condominiums. While many of these buyers and renters are willing to do without the greater square footage of a traditional single-family home, they still expect comfort and convenience. This means better use of space, clever combining of rooms and features and reliance on plastics to give design flexibility at reduced costs. From the functionality of built-in shelving to the luxury of cultured marble surfaces, plastics can provide the materials.

Added Attractions

Trend forecasters also predict that families who do purchase single-family homes increasingly will opt for existing older homes, which they will refurbish to suit their needs. Here, too, plastics will play a major role, with replacement and improvement materials offering both functional and decorative benefits.

As families grow, homes age and tastes change, remodelling will be initiated. As this happens, contractors and do-it-yourselfers increasingly will turn to light, strong, easily handled plastics to make improvements and repairs, from ceiling tiles to advanced wiring and from modern bathroom fixtures to improved installation.

In building additions as well as new construction, plastic mold and plastic materials will continue to add speed, save energy and reduce costs. With plastics, for example, bathroom fixtures such as tubs, showers and sinks can be constructed in one piece – walls, pipes and all – and then hoisted into place and attached to the building frame, producing significant savings in construction and installation costs.

In the restoration of older homes, plastics can provide the best of both worlds: the duplication of yesterday’s beauty using today’s superior materials. Architectural touches such as a decorative wall, door and window moldings can be achieved that mimic marble or hand carvings but offer the ease of care and damage resistance only plastics can provide.

Plastics are expected to proliferate in all homes – large and small, new and renewed – for easily installed ceiling materials with excellent acoustic, thermal and fire-resistance qualities, lower-cost window frames that stand tough against the elements but need little maintenance and durable entry doors that offer superior insulation and unique beauty. From foundations to roofing and virtually everywhere in between, plastics increasingly will answer the call for building materials that hold up and stand out. want to know more information about plastics and plastic molds, you can go contact us.

The process also can eliminate stress, warpage, and sink marks, and greatly improve productivity. These benefits allow designers to specify lightweight, polymer-saving foam materials for products in which conventionally foamed materials would be unacceptable.

Charmilles to Host Extrusion Tooling Seminar in United States

Charmilles will host a two-day extrusion-tooling seminar, October 22-23, at its North American headquarters in Lincolnshire, Illinois, USA. The two-day seminar will be delivered by Dave Friedwald, a designer of complex extrusion dies and sizers.

The first day of the seminar addresses vacuum sizing. Attendees will learn how to design, manufacture and use a fast cooling vacuum sizer that cools plastic profiles 540 times faster than water. In addition, they will learn how to choose the right vacuum pump, and how to taper each sizer for specific tolerances and materials.

Day two of the seminar focuses on dies, and will address the advantages of using sizers, design technologies to maximize wire EDMs for adapters and dies, hollow profile tooling, vinyl profiles, as well as troubleshooting pitfalls. Friedwald will also instruct participants how to eliminate sink marks in plastic profile.

“This seminar focuses on hands-on learning,” says Gisbert Ledvon, marketing manager for Charmilles. “We chose Dave as our presenter not only because of his expertise in the extrusion die field, but because the application of his techniques have been successfully applied to manufacturing processes worldwide, and saved many companies time and money.”

Friedwald spent several years working at extrusion firms before he and a partner started a new business in which they developed a number of machines that are currently used in the extrusion industry, including vacuum tanks and cutters. Friedwald has also operated a wire EDM shop. He started his own consulting and design company, Extrusion Die Technologies in 1985 and delivers seminars regularly to companies in the United States.

These seminars can be attended independently, but are most effective when attended in succession as part of a comprehensive two-day event.

Aluminum tool robot

SMT Tricept Partners with ABB in
Marketing Machine Tool Robot

An agreement with SMT t gives ABB  the right to integrate and sell the company’s patented machine tool robot, the Tricept, in conjunction with ABB’s S4Cplus control system.

The robot will be marketed by ABB under the product name IRB 940 Tricept, and is intended primarily for the machining of aluminum castings for the automotive industry. The IRB 940 Tricept was launched at the September IMTS in Chicago.

ABB has a strong position in the production and processing of aluminum components, but it had been lacking a product with the sturdiness needed to meet the demands of highly accurate machining. The IRB 940 Tricept is a good example of ABB’s initiative in intensifying research and development collaboration with integrators and other collaborating partners.

ABB’s robotic offering spans most of the production process for the manufacture and process aluminum components. For heavier machining, supplementary equipment was needed, and it is here that the Tricept has found a niche

THERMOFORMING

Servo Valves Give Smart Air, Oil, Vacuum Control 
    Electronically fired valves that control air, vacuum, or oil supply on a thermoforming unit normally have only two positions: open and closed. But the new Smart Valve from Lyle Industries Inc., Beaverton, Mich., is a servo valve that can be programmed for a continuous range of flow control from 0 to 100%. Microprocessor control of the valves permits saving valve parameters as part of the “recipe” for making a particular part. Lyle offers the Smart Valve as an option on its machines and also offers them for use on other units.

Cups Get Fast Lip Service 
    Roll lips on 500 to 5000 cups/min with the new LR-2000 lip roller from Brown Machine, Beaverton, Mich. The unit uses four curling screws powered by a single AC variable-speed drive. Screw distances can be adjusted for a different size cup (2 to 32 oz) in minutes using a micrometer-type adjustment. Brown says the new model is faster, more reliable, and easier to adjust than units with a single curling screw and helper roller.

New Electric Injection Molding Machine Course

Electric molding machines now account for over 50% of new machine sales. There are several reasons for their popularity, more precise control, lower electricity consumption, and potentially faster cycles are among the reasons. But along with these and other advantages are potential problems. To avoid very expensive operating mistakes, these machines require knowledgeable personnel with comprehensive understanding of this new technology. It was time we created an effective training course to address the growing demands of this new technology. We set to work creating new, robust graphics showing close-up details of the machine and controls; we assembled our filming crew and head out to a state-of-the-art processing plant to film the actual machine in use and of course we applied our expert knowledge for the script of each lesson. In short we’ve created a comprehensive three-lesson course including specifics in machine design, cycle and parts; effects of controls; and how to optimize electric machine settings and much, much more. We have some special pre-release offers going. Give us a call to learn more. Our new product ships July 30, 2010. Give us a call we’d love to hear from you and are ready to answer any of your questions.

INJECTION MOLDING TRAINING: Basic Molding Machine Operations

This is an introductory injection molding training course describing molding machine parts and operation, operator responsibilities, safe practices and identifying part defects. It is ideal for all operators, entry-level employees, temporary employees, and even job candidates. Also available in Spanish.

  • Lesson 1 – This plastics training lesson starts with an overview of the injection molding process, then covers basic material handling do�s and don�ts, machine part identification and standard operator responsibilities during the molding cycle. Emphasis is given to operating safety, protection of molds from damage, and proper plastic part handling.
  • Lesson 2 – This plastics training lesson explains molding machine operations. It also discusses regrinding, trimming flash and degating plastic parts from runners. Employees are taught to identify common part defects such as short shots, flash, warp, surface defects and color changes.

Paulson School of Molding�s fully interactive plastics training program introduces newcomers to technology using injection molding training with full motion video, text, audio and graphic animation.

injection unit

The Twinshot patented co-injection technology is a cost-effective process that can give you a distinct competitive advantage within your marketplace by significantly reducing part cost while improving product quality. It’s a single injection unit , co-injection molding system that can be easily retrofit to your current screw/barrel injection molding machine.

Available only from Spirex, Twinshot enables a conventional machine with a single barrel and screw to inject two materials in one operation, with one material totally enclosing the other. This new co-injection molding technique removes the obstacles to widespread co-injection utilization while preserving all of the traditional benefits. Simplicity and low cost differentiate this innovative technology from other co-injection processes. With this new system, virtually any custom or proprietary molder can afford co-injection equipment.

  • Single screw, single barrel, single recovery, single shot, single cycle… two materials.
  • Two independent melting sections (one for the skin material and the other for the core material) with multi-zone temperature control.
  • Single shot mold fill. The first part of the shot is skin; the second part is core.
  • Mold fill follows fountain flow principles causing skin material to fill the outer geometry of the part and cool as the inner material flows through the molten core.
  • Volume is controlled by varying primary or auger feeder screw speeds.
  • Result is a three-layer or “sandwich” construction A-B-A.

Tooling

Tool Insert Degates In the Mold 
    A simple in-mold degating method for edge-gated parts has been developed by Cavity Balancing Systems (CBS) of Kitchener, Ont. The method relies on new Flush Trim Inserts, which are positioned near the gate to form lands encircling the gate region. When the parts are ejected, a nearby ejector pin causes a shearing action that breaks the part from its runner. Made from hardened tool steel, the low-cost inserts and the retaining pins that hold them fit into easily machined pockets and stepped holes. CBS estimates that the inserts will pay for themselves in reduced labor after 25,000 to 50,000 cycles.

New CAD Software Eases Mold Design & Inspection 
    A new suite of CAD/CAM tools for mold design and manufacture was shown at the recent K’98 show in Dusseldorf by Delcam of the U.K. (represented by Delcam International, Inc., Windsor, Ont.). Called Power Solution, the suite includes PowerShape 3D surface-modeling software, which automates injection mold design by generating plates, inserts, and hole layouts, as well as a bill of materials. “PowerInspect” software works with coordinate measuring machines to compare part dimensions with the original CAD model. “PowerMill” provides multi-axis 3D CAM capabilities.
