What are the steps of PVC injection molding process?

A PVC (polyvinyl chloride) injection molding machine is a specialized type of machine that is used to mold PVC plastic into a variety of shapes and sizes. PVC is a thermoplastic material that can be easily melted and molded into a desired shape using high heat and pressure.

The PVC injection molding machine consists of several components, including:
A hopper, which holds the PVC pellets before they are melted
A screw-type injector, which melts the PVC pellets and injects them into a mold
A mold, which is a hollow cavity that gives the PVC its final shape
A clamping unit, which holds the mold securely in place during the injection process
A control panel, which allows the operator to set and monitor the machine's parameters, such as temperature and injection pressure.

The PVC injection molding process typically involves the following steps:
PVC pellets are loaded into the hopper
The screw-type injector melts the PVC pellets and injects them into the mold under high pressure.
The mold is held in place by the clamping unit while the PVC cools and solidifies.
Once the PVC has cooled and solidified, the mold is opened and the finished part is removed.
PVC injection molding machines are commonly used to produce a wide range of products such as pipes, fittings, profiles, and other industrial products, toys, household items, automotive parts and many more.
