Types of Small Injection Molding Machines

For the first time in the plastic machine industry, I want to know what small injection molding machines are, but in the face of many terms and parameters, many non-professional friends feel big after reading them. Don’t worry, Timswell will introduce the types of small injection molding machines for you.

There are three main types of small injection molding machines: small horizontal injection molding machine, low parameter standard vertical injection molding machine and low pressure injection molding machine.

Small horizontal injection molding machine:

Simply put, a horizontal injection molding machine is bigger than a vertical injection molding machine. Of course, there are some “small” machines with relatively low parameters in horizontal injection molding machines, because the shape is relatively small, which can also be classified within the scope of small injection molding machines.

The general small horizontal injection molding machine is suitable for the production of gears, connectors, connectors, terminals, snack boxes, plastic cups and other products.

Small Injection Molding Machines

Low parameter standard vertical injection molding machine:

The standard vertical injection molding machine with low parameters can be classified as a small vertical injection molding machine because of its low parameters and compact shape. The so-called standard vertical injection molding machine is the basic vertical injection molding machine, which is equivalent to what we often call “non-RMB players”, without any optional equipment. The low-parameter standard vertical injection molding machine has two brothers: one is the “low-parameter disc machine” and the other is the “disc machine”.The disc machine is the lock template part is the disc rotatable, we call it the disc machine. The skateboard machine is the skateboard machine that locks the template, followed by some optional devices such as servo motors, robotic arms, automation devices, etc.

Small vertical injection molding machine is suitable for the production of USB cable, power plug, network plug, closed-circuit plug, bottle cap, and other products with inserts.

Low-pressure injection molding machine:

Low-pressure injection molding machine is a common type of vertical injection molding machine, which is generally used to make encapsulated injection molding, such as mobile phone charging cable connector encapsulation. It is characterized by low parameters and compact shape, so it is also classified as a small injection molding machine.

In terms of categories, small injection molding machines are actually horizontal and vertical injection molding machines, so what is the difference between these two kinds of injection molding machines?

  1. Vertical injection molding machine injection molding is from top to bottom; horizontal injection molding machine injection molding is horizontal. The main reason is that the opening and closing directions of the mold are different, one is in the horizontal direction, the other is in the vertical direction. As a result, there are some differences in use, and the operation after mold opening is slightly different.
  2. The vertical injection molding machine is suitable for injection molding products with inserts, two-color injection molding and multi-station rotary operation. Because the barrel screw is vertical, so the vertical machine is generally higher, to achieve fully automatic production often requires peripheral auxiliary machinery to assist production, such as: suction machine and manipulator conveyor belt.
  3. Horizontal machine, horizontal injection molding machine refers to the horizontal (horizontal) injection molding machine as a general injection molding machine, is a common injection moulding machine on the market. It is easy to operate, convenient to maintain, and easy to be accepted by manufacturers of large injection products.
  4. Horizontal injection molding machines cover twice the area of vertical injection molding machines. Its advantage is that plastic parts can fall automatically after being pushed out of the cavity, which realizes large-scale automatic operation. Therefore, horizontal injection molding machine is usually used to produce products with slightly larger area or pure plastic products.
