Great for prototyping, R & D and short run productions.
This economical, pneumatic, bench top molding machine only requires shop air and 220v, single phase to get you on your way to insert molding any thermoplastic components. Great for prototyping, R & D and short run productions.
The PM18 is a semi automatic molding machine that comes with an in/out shuttle which slides both halves of the mold out to the operator for ease of loading and unloading parts. The mold will need to be a book mold (hinged on one side) or have handles for the operator to lift the top off. The plunger retracts out of the barrel and allows the pellets for the next shot to fall into the barrel. The barrel contains a beryllium copper spreader to transfer the heat to the center of the melt to ensure an even melt flow and faster recovery between cycles and prevent melted material from sticking to the plunger.
