Importance of Plastic Extrusion:

Importance of Plastic Extrusion Use of plastic has increased manifold in the daily life. Either it is for packing food material or soft drinks or for industrial piping and other uses, plastic is used extensively in all sectors. Plastic can be given various shapes and sizes conforming to your specific requirements using the plastic extrusion method. This has turned very advantageous for industries as they put great emphasis on consistency of the shape, size and quality of the product.

…Importance of Plastic Extrusion:

Plastic extrusion process involves melting plastic and giving it various shapes by forcing it into various dies to give shape of continuous of continuous profiles. This is then cut to various sizes. Using plastic extrusion process we can get final product with constant cross sections which are perfect for industrial use. Plastic extrusion is a great way of achieving standardized sizes which are easily workable. …Importance of Plastic Extrusion

…Importance of Plastic Extrusion:

…Importance of Plastic Extrusion Plastic extrusion is the best way to make low cost plastic products at a faster pace and hence it yields greater productivity too. Plastic extrusion method is used for manufacturing products such as piping, plastic sheets, weather stripping, wire insulation tapes, adhesive tapes, etc.

Requirements:

Requirements Plastic extrusion can be carried out with the help of a simple plastic extrusion machine. The main components of the plastic extruder machine are hopper, barrel, screw drive, and the screw drive motor. Thermoplastic material is the basic raw material used for the plastic extrusion process. It is used in the resin form which is easy to for loading and melting.

… Requirements:

… Requirements The most common materials used for this procedure are high impact polystyrene (HIPS), PVC, polyethylene, polypropylene, and ABS. For getting the final desired result or dies are used. Dies are prepared specifically as per the requirement of the shape or size of the final product. The accuracy of the die would decide the finish and consistency of the final product.

Screw Design- An Important Consideration:

Screw Design- An Important Consideration Screw is the only moving part in the plastic extruding procedure and hence various factors like melting rate, size of the resin, type of raw plastic, and amount of pressure required maintaining uniformity, etc. play an important part in deciding the size, design and diameter of the screw. Few applications in which materials need to be compounded within the barrel of the extruder a twin screw design may be used for adequate mixing.
