Injection Press Systems
The injection molding machine’s support systems include the frame, hydraulic system, electrical system, and cooling system. These are the support systems that help run an injection molding machine.
The injection molding machine’s injection unit includes the hopper, barrel, screw, non-return assembly, and nozzle.
The injection molding machine’s clamping unit includes the clamping system, machine ejectors, moveable platen, stationary platen, and tie bars.
The drawing here represents a microprocessor controlled injection molding machine. The machine controls include the control panel and the computer.
Mold Base Technology
This section will discuss the basic machine components of the mold in an injection molding machine. It will also cover the terminology used for the mold.
Injection Molding Cycle
This animation illustrates the injection molding cycle. The four phases of an injection molding cycle are:
