What are Chillers? February 22, 2021 | Machinery Center News, Machinery Center Plastic and Metal Machinery

Industrial chillers cool process fluids. Process fluids (typically water or a water/glycol mix) are used to cool machinery, equipment, food, etc. The process fluid absorbs heat from what is being cooled and then goes through the chiller where the heat is removed from the fluid and transferred to the ambient air .Even when water cooled, the chiller is often cooled by an induced or forced draft cooling tower. Machinery Centers has a wide variety of new and used air cooled and water-cooled … READ MORE >


What are Thermoforming Machines? January 18, 2021 | Machinery Center Plastic and Metal Machinery

Also referred to as vacuum formers, these machines heat plastic sheets till they’re malleable, then use the vacuum shape the plastic to a mold. As soon as the plastic is formed and cooled, a burst of air separates it from the mold. Thermoformers perform finest with easy to form plastics, similar to ABS, polystyrene, and PETG. For best outcomes, create molds utilizing porous, which permits the vacuum to take away air bubbles. Apply a mold release lubricant for a clear separation. Select thermoformers with one heating zone for basic, small-production purposes, similar to prototyping. These thermoformers use 10″ ×12″ sheets as much as 5/32″ thick. Thermoformers with 4 … READ MORE >


What are Blow Molding Machines? December 29, 2020 | Machinery Center Plastic and Metal Machinery

Blow Molding Machines Blow molding machines are used within the plastics manufacturing industry to make bottles of all types. Like other molding processes, blow molding machines generate their finished product through use of heated plastic and a mold cavity in which the liquid is shaped and cooled into its final form under pressure.    Extrusion blow molding machines use a plastic manufacturing process to produce bottles of various sizes and shapes. Plastic resin in the form of pellets are fed into an … READ MORE >


What are Extrusion Molding Machines? December 29, 2020 | Machinery Center Plastic and Metal Machinery

Extrusion Molders  Extrusion molding machines for plastic are used to create plastic objects with a fixed cross-sectional profile. A single screw extrusion molding machine has a rotating screw within a heated barrel. Plastic pellets are fed in through the hopper, and the friction of the rotating screw in addition to the heating elements melts the plastic as it is pushed forward and eventually exits in a unique shape through the die on the other end.  Different types of downstream components may be … READ MORE >


What are Injection Molding Machines? December 29, 2020 | Machinery Center Plastic and Metal Machinery
