Plastic Injection Molding Hopper

Injection Unit Hopper

The hopper is a cone-shaped container for plastic pellets to be stored and dried. Capacity is determined by the proper residence time required for the material being processed. Material can be loaded into a hopper by direct feed material loaders. These loaders allow material to be transferred from a Gaylord or silo to the hopper of an injection molding press without picking up contaminants or moisture.
