How Does It Work? 

An injection machine is made up of three primary components. Those are the feed hopper, the screw and the heated barrel. Plastic pieces are sent into the heated barrel by a hopper. Plastic that is placed in the hopper is usually in powder form although some resin may already be a liquid and not entail heating. The material is then melted by the use of the frictional action of a reciprocating screw along with heater bands. The melted plastic is then injected through the nozzle and into a mold cavityWhile in the mold cavity, the material cools and solidifies to the configuration of the cavity. When the part has hardened, the moveable casing that the mold is mounted opens and the part is ejected using ejector pins.
