Spin Casting Process

Introduction: Also known as centrifugal rubber mold casting (CRMC), the main features of spin casting process is the use of rubber mold and employing centrifugal force for cSpin Castingasting. During the solidification process the mold spins on it central axis till the metal solidifies in the mold. Spin casting is a widely used non-expendable process, for casting products that have excellent details and surface finish.

Process: For spin casting, first strong patterns are made out of silicon rubber or investment cast wax, that are designed using rapid prototyping system or other pattern making methods. The pattern are places in a uncured silicon mold to create a casting mold. When the silicon mold is cured it is spun on its axis, and during the process the molten metal with low melting metals such as zinc, pewter, tin or lead are poured into the center of the mold. Centrifugal force pushes the charge through the runner. The mold spin when the metal solidifies.

Injection Molding

Injection molding is a versatile process for forming thermoplastic and thermoset materials into molded products of intricate shapes, at high production rates and with good dimensional accuracy. The process involves the injection, under high pressure, of a metered quantity of heated and plasticized material into a relatively cool mold--in which the plastic material solidifies. Resin pellets are fed through a heated screw and barrel under high pressure. The liquefied material moves through a runner system and into the mold. The cavity of the mold determines the external shape of the product while the core shapes the interior. When the material enters the chilled cavities, it starts to re-plasticize and return to a solid state and the configuration of the finished part. The machine then ejects the finished parts or products.

Lost Core Molding Process

lost core injection molding, also known as Fusible core injection molding, is a specialized plastic injection molding process used to mold internal cavities or undercuts that are not possible to mold with demoldable cores. Strictly speaking the term "fusible core injection molding refers to the use of a fusible alloy as the core material; when the core material is made from a soluble plastic the process is known as soluble core injection molding. This process is often used for automotive parts, such as intake manifolds andbrake housings, however it is also used for aerospace parts, plumbing parts, bicycle wheels, and footwear.

The most common molding materials are glass-filled nylon 6 and nylon 66. Other materials include unfilled nylons, polyphenylene sulfide, glass-filled polyaryletherketone (PAEK), glass-filled polypropylene (PP), rigid thermoplastic urethane, and elastomericthermoplastic polyurethane.

Injection Molding

What Is Injection Molding And Why It Is Important

Injection molding is a manufacturing process widely used for producing items from toys and plastic trinkets to automotive body panels, water bottles, and cell phone cases. A liquid plastic is forced into a mold and cures - it sounds simple, but is a complex process. The liquids used vary from hot glass to a variety of plastics - thermosetting and thermoplastic.

History
The first injection molding machine was patented in 1872, and celluloid was used to produce simple everyday items such as hair combs.

Just after the Second World War, a much-improved injection molding process - 'screw injection' was developed and is the most widely used technique today. Its inventor, James Watson Hendry, later developed 'blow molding' which is used for example to produce modern plastic bottles.

Plastic

CHEMICAL COMPOUND

Plastic, polymeric material that has the capability of being molded or shaped, usually by the application of heat and pressure. This property of plasticity, often found in combination with other special properties such as low density, low electrical conductivity, transparency, and toughness, allows plastics to be made into a great variety of products. These include tough and lightweight beverage bottles made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), flexible garden hoses made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), insulating food containers made of foamed polystyrene, and shatterproof windows made of polymethyl methacrylate.

The finer points of injection molding process adjustments

Processing in plastic injection can be a tricky business. It takes a strong and knowledgable approach toward process setup when adjustments are being made to a process. Materials respond in different ways to process change, and every adjustment needs to be made with a solid understanding that a part's dimensions, aesthetics and even function can either be improved or degraded as variables are changed.

A good comparison to process adjustment in regards to machine response are old-style radios with knobs designed for both broad and fine tuning. One knob is used to aggressively adjust frequencies to get to the station you want. The other knob allows for fine tuning of a particular station.

Process adjustment is very similar. There are adjustments that can be made for fast and/or broad change(s) while establishing process, and other changes work better when making small adjustments to an established process. It is crucial to note that the time to be making major changes to a specific process is during the engineering phase of process development and validation.

How to choose the right plastic for your project

There are thousands of plastics on the market that can be used for rapid prototyping or low-volume manufacturing—choosing the right one for a given project can be overwhelming, especially for first-time inventors or new entrepreneurs. Each material has trade-offs when it comes to cost, strength, flexibility and surface finish. Consideration must be given not only to the application of the part or product, but also to the environment in which it will be used.

Overall, engineering plastics have advanced mechanical properties that offer greater durability and that won’t be compromised during the manufacturing process. Modifications also can be made to some types of plastics to improve their strength as well as their impact and heat resistance. Let’s delve into the different plastic materials to consider depending on the final part or product’s function.

Mechanical parts

One of the most common resins used to make mechanical parts is nylon, aka polyamide (PA). When PA is mixed with molybdenum it has a slippery surface for easy motion. However, using nylon-to-nylon gear trains is not recommended, as similar plastics tend to stick together. PA is highly resistant to wear and abrasion and has good mechanical properties at elevated temperatures. Nylon is ideal as a filament for 3D plastic printing, but it absorbs water over time.
