Modern Approaches In Manufacturing of Plastic Products Abdul Subhan M.Faris Khan Department of Mechatronics Engineering Department of Mechatronics Engineering Szabist University Szabist University Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan [email protected] [email protected] Abstract – In this paper we will bediscussing about the production of plastics through Injection Molding Processand other modern techniques inindustries. Injection molding has been challenging process to produce productmeeting requirement. To determine theparameters for the manufacturing of plastics through injection molding using experimental approach is nolonger good enough. Due to insufficient performance of machine the quality ofthe production may deviate during production.
Determining optimal operationparameter would influence quality, cost production in plasticmanufacturing. Previously the plasticmanufacturing was much slower, now plastic is manufactured through machiningprocess. Now CNC and EDM machining isused which process the molds through optimal parameters. Part design, molddesign, machine performance and processing condition are the categories thateffect the quality of the molded part.
Mechanical properties, dimensions ormeasurable characteristics, and attributes are quality characteristics ininjection molding machine. Other than this the cavities and mold design aredesigned through CAM. This research emphasizes in designing the process parameter to produce plasticsthrough injection molding. KeyWords – Machining, Injection,Molding, Parameters. I.
Introduction Plasticare basically organic polymers of high molecular mass, are usually synthetic ,many are made from renewable materials. In many countries ,plastic is being intensely used by thecustomers. In casing of an automobile plastic is used even in toys and casingof mobile. In modern world the rapid growth in industries put thedemanding requirements in the innovative process of production ofplastics. To consume time the process to mold and cavities for plasticproduction has been revolutionized, modern techniques has been implemented formore production due to intense demand of the plastic all over the world. One ofthe such technologies is the Rapid Prototyping method, which enables both,designer and customer to see physical presentation . Manufacturing a plasticcomprises of stages from CAD design to simulation to injection molding process throughinjection molding machine.
Injection molding machine is a machine formanufacturing plastic products by injection molding process consisting of injectionunit and clamping unit.
