Plastic Processes

Injection Moulding - plastic granules or recycled plastic is loaded into the hopper,which is allowed into the injection screw. The piston moves forward and gets injected into the mould. The mould is ejected and the product is formed.

Injection moulding is used extensively in industry.

Vacuum Forming - the mould is placed onto the plate. Then you heat up the plastic. Once hot enough you raise the plate
