Category Description

<p><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial; font-size: 10pt; white-space: pre-wrap;">Injection molding is one of the most commonly used processes for making plastic products. In this process, the liquefied polymer is injected into a mold cavity. </span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-weight: 700; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Cost of an Injection Moulding Machine </span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">The cost of an injection moulding machine varies a lot on the size of the machine required and the specific application in mind. In the lower end, it starts around 25 000 AUD, but very large and complex machines could easily run into the millions.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-weight: 700; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Capacity of an Injection Moulding Machine </span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Average production time to make a unit depends on following parameters: Part size; Wall thickness; Mould runner; Machine capabilities</span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">&nbsp;</p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial; font-size: 10pt; font-weight: 700; white-space: pre-wrap;">Components of an Injection Moulding Machine</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Injection molding machines generally consist of three units: the machine bed, the injection unit, and clamping unit.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-weight: 700; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Cycle time of an Injection Moulding Machine </span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Cycle time is the total time required to complete all the stages of the injection molding cycle. The cycle time is made up of the following stages: Fill time, packing time, cooling time. </span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-weight: 700; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Electricity Consumption Injection Moulding Machine </span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Each Injection Moulding machine has a distinctive electricity consumption profile due to its efficiency. Databases such as EcoInvent provide an average electricity consumption value (1.47 kWh/kg) for the injection-molding process, but the variability in these processes is very high. </span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
