Plastic Extrusion Moulding

Extrusion Moulding is an economical and practical way of mass producing a wide range of linear products. It is ideal for manufacturing rigid and flexible pipes and profiles that are extensively utilized in mining, agriculture, building, medical and domestic markets.

Heated plastic is forced through a die to create a wide range of products  such as piping, hoses, plastic profiles and seals. In fact it is almost unlimited in scope and volume produced. Approximately 65% of all plastics pass through an extruder.

Plastic Injection Moulding

Injection moulding is an extremely versatile and popular form of producing randomly shaped plastic components and products.

With injection moulding, plastic granules are heated and "injected" under pressure into metal moulds, where the molten plastic hardens into a designated shape. The mould then opens and the newly formed part is removed and inspected, ready for shipment or secondary manufacturing operations.

Plastic Rotational Molding

Rotational molding is best known for the manufacture of tanks but it can also be used to make complex medical products, toys , leisure craft and highly aesthetic point-of-sale products.

The principle of rotational molding of plastics is simple. Basically the process consists of introducing a known amount of plastic in power, granular or viscous liquid form into a hollow, shell-like mold The mold is rotated and/or rocked about two principal axes at relativley low speeds as it is heated so that the plastic enclosed in the mold adheresto, and forms a monolithic layer against the mold surface. The mold rotation continues during the cooling phase so that the plastic retains its desired shape as it solidifies. When the plastic is sufficiently rigid the cooling and mold rotation is stopped to allow the removal of the plastic product from the mold.
