The Injection Molding Machines

The Morgan-Presses are versatile injection molding machines designed to reduce the costs of production.  Its unique design was especially developed to make injection molding of plastic molded parts practical and economical in the quantities required for rapid prototyping and low-volume production.  This makes it ideal for model shops,medical device manufacturers, R & D labs, and many other plastic injection molding applications that require short-run production needs.

Features on all Morgan’s injection molding machines:

  • Solid State Temperature Controllers – featuring digital set-point and readout, 3-mode proportioning and programmable controls, 0-800°F/0-430°C 1/8 DIN modular units.
  • Injection Speed Control – for adjusting injection speeds slower and faster where cavity fill rates are critical
  • Heavy duty cast aluminum construction
  • Hardened and chrome-plated barrels (material melt cylinders)
  • Precision ground chrome-plated stanchion rods
  • Generous 8″x11″ (maximum) mold plan area

Theory of injection molding


The theory of injection molding can be reduced to four simple individual steps: Plasticizing, Injection, Chilling, and Ejection. Each of those steps is distinct from the others and correct control of each is essential to the success of the total process.

Plasticizing – describes the conversion of the polymer material from its normal hard granular form at room temperatures, to the liquid consistency necessary for injection at its correct melt temperature.
Injection – is the stage during which this melt is introduced into a mold to completely fill a cavity or cavities.
Chilling – is the action of removing heat from the melt to convert it from a liquid consistency back to its original rigid state. As the material cools, it also shrinks.
Ejection – is the removal of the cooled, molded part from the mold cavity and from any cores or inserts.
Repetition of these basic steps in sequence is the process of injection molding.

The practice of injection molding
The practice of injection molding varies from the theory, only in as much as process limitations and available equipment affect it. Step by step process is explained in ST’s Cutting Costs in Short-run Plastic Injection Molding guide.

High-Performance Inspection Probe

High-Performance Inspection Probe
Introduced for Machining Centers

Renishaw Inc.‘s new OMP40 probe is a significant development that brings the benefits of automated part set-up and in-cycle gaging to small machining centers and high-speed cutting machines. With the OMP40, you can realize the benefits of probing, including reductions in set-up times of up to 90%, reduced scrap due to setting errors, reduced fixture costs, and improved process control.

The OMP40 uses miniaturized electronics that allow an ultra-compact probe that is 40 mm (diameter) by 50 mm (length), while still delivering a metrology performance of 1µm repeatability.

The OMP40 operates with Renishaw’s optical signal transmission system and is a further development in the company’s extensive range of products for machining centers. It was designed to meet a demand for probing on small machining centers and an expanding family of high-speed machines fitted with small HSK and small-taper spindles.

The OMP40 features a 360° optical transmission system with a range of up to 3 m, allowing probe operation in any spindle orientation. The result is simplified system installation and set-up on small machine tools, making the OMP40 suitable for retrofitting to machines without probing.

Plastic Molds business

You may be considering casting (sometimes called “pouring”) molds using concrete, cement, plaster, ceramic material, wax, soap, and even hypertufa is used as a medium.

Plastic Mold (sometimes spelled “plastic mould“) can be made from a variety of materials. There are latex or rubber molds. These are generaly expensive to purchase and take a fair amount of expertise to use. They give great detail and beautiful results when used properly.

Many of these are made to order, so delivery time is 3 -5 weeks after you have placed an order and paid your money. This is a long wait if you are just starting off in the hobby or business.

Your investment in plastic molds will be considerable and even with several hundred dollars worth of molds you may only have 5 – 10 different castings to offer your customers.

I recommend that you start with the much cheaper and easier to use rigid or semi rigid plastic molds. They are  inexpensive and will give you an excellent feel for mixing and casting whichever medium you are interested in. If you invest $150 to $200 in these you will have 20 or 30 different castings to sell and be well on your way to making some money!

Plastic molds can normally be ordered and delivered within 5 -7 working days. You are in business as soon as you recieve your molds as most retailers will include instuctions. These molds are very durable and will give you a great start in you casting business.

The choice is yours.

Crate mold-Thw Ways of Crate Mould Maintenance

Choosing the right documentation software may prove essential in helping crate mould makers collaborate while promoting the principles autonomous maintenance. The right software can help companies develop visual, step-by-step process documentation (procedures that include diagrams, color photos and videos), which enables shops to establish a set of standardized instructions for everything from plastic crate mould cleaning and repair to safety procedures.

While incredibly important, maintenance and cleaning are also tedious and require precise attention to detail. No one really gets

excited about doing them. So, in a busy shop where customers demand quick turnarounds, preventative maintenance often gets

pushed to the back burner. After all, it’s a time-consuming job. It takes a careful, patient and knowledgeable hand to

complete the process correctly.

The right software won’t just aid in the documentation, it can also be the foundation of a shop-wide communication system— a way to distribute expertise from master to journeyman. Even when experts are tied up on other tasks,

their insights can still be referenced by less- experienced workers. You don’t need to look over someone’s shoulder to explain exactly the right way to do a job. The system should handle that for you.

Plastic injection molding Manufacturing

Plastic injection molding Manufacturing

Plastic Molds and Plastic injection molding is one of the most commonly used molding processes used globally. There are many interesting facts regarding plastic injection molding machines. Injection molding machines vary in sizes they can range to a size of table to as large as your whole room as well. Some injection molding machines have the capacity to produce around 200million plastic molds in one year.

The prices of injection molding machines are also very high. A latest technology molding machines can easily cost $750,000. There are also some molding machines which requires no human resource to operate them they are totally automated. Molding machines needs to be operated with lot of safety and precautions because if a person’s gets in between the mold during the production run the person will be completely crushed into half. Plastic injection molding machines also requires a lot of maintenance which mostly depends on the number of hours the machine is operated daily.

In order to produce consistent plastic parts that too at the fastest cycle time possible to reduce injection molding cost, you need to basically produce its parts in the injection molding process, because it helps in designing and building a mold that will help achieve the above target. There are plastic types that need a cold mold whereas there are some that require hotter mold.

You can do the better cooling mold in various ways depending up the type of plastic to reduce cycle time, but there is this common practice that is followed at a large scale for doing the cooling mold is by drilled holes which basically create a circuit consisting of an in port as well as an out port. This practice is suitable for plastic parts which happen to be square or rectangular. They can also be made the most of by using them in the mold plates as per the need.

By using this method, you are potentially saving more money because this method happens to very economical when it comes to installing water into an injection mold. Just as you would do the cooling of the mold, it is advisable that you do the heating mold up to 200°F. In case the plastic you are dealing with, requires some hotter temperature, then you will need to use hot oil in the waterlines.

We have shared with you some of the most common options that you find available for doing mold cooling in injection molding. There’s this point which must not be done and should be avoided which is to not let mold size as well as the mold cost cause you to actually clear off the corners on the mold cooling by cutting.

What is DFM-Design For Manufacturing

What is DFM-Design For Manufacturing

Design For Manufacturing ( DFM ) is the the company’s initial idea prior to mold plastic parts design. Its main target is how to design the mold core part of a plan to meet the requirements set plastic parts. Its content is mainly formed of the gate, parting surfaces, core-pulling ideas.

  • gate design: by the Pro / E of Plastic Adviser of the plastic parts were filled gate position and performance analysis, can find the appropriate position into the plastic. Since the gate point is set in the shape of the surface of the plastic parts, the need to minimize traces of pouring, and taking into account its own mold can pull waste drying track, so a point into the plastic.

  • sub-surface: Plastic Housing Knobbie open mode direction is vertical upward, and set draft is of 1 °. Sub-surface plastic parts should be selected in the bottom surface, it is a good mold release and will not affect the appearance of the quality of the plastic parts can also use the gap and core, thimble, etc. into the sub-gap discharge. To facilitate the process, improve accuracy, the child in plastic molded side hook grooves. This allows the shape of the sub-surface of a plane, more convenient
  • pulling mechanism design: careful observation of three-dimensional model of the plastic parts can be found there is a need to use the slider slot for easy mold after molding. It requires the use of angle pin block side parting pulling mechanism.
