Injection Unit

This package includes the Injection barrel with tabs,

the plunger, hopper and custom nozzle.

The nozzle hack mitigates the 'dead space' between the end of the plunger and your mold, thus saving a bit more plastic (article in forums: https://davehakkens.nl/community/forums/topic/injectionextrusion-nozzle-refinement/)

If you'd like to add or remove items in the package just let me know what you want.

Shipping has not been included in the cost, so let me know where you are and we can work it out.

*Dimensions vary slightly (as shown in last image) due to the differing standards in South Africa, but all other measurements remain the same as blueprints.

**Contact me before payment so we can discuss shipping

That's right, the shipping cost for two would be the same as for one? Tim s

Texas Guy will participate. Do Euro guys have tighter tolerance I.D. stainless barrel than we can get in States ? I can only source 1 inch + .050 - 1.050, I think too much slack space.

The closest and tightest tolerance I could find here in SA was SCH80 plumbing pipe. I needed to machine the plunger but perhaps you can figure something similar in the states?

I mean the plunger.. I've only been able to build the Injector with local - low cost materials thus far, so i can't really answer questions regarding the PP Extruder. If you're looking for some help maybe post a topic in the forums - I'm sure there are other Americans looking for similar solutions.

Hi Tim

Do you know how much the postage to Ireland would be and roughly how long it would take to dispatch?

Thanks

Hey Colm, I'm unfortunately not shipping overseas any longer. The cost of shipping is almost double that of the unit price.. I'd gladly offer some advice on building on of your own.

For the tighter, more effective fit of your screw or drill bit in the barrel shop for tubing to construct a barrel like below:

Go to:

http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/mepages/4130tubing_un1.php

Scroll down to 1 1/4 inch wall thickness .120", i.d. 1.010"

They sell it by the foot.

This tubing is a perfect fit for the alloy screw or the power pole drill bit, much tighter than schedule pipe.

Hello - what are the shipping costs to Austria - and do you also have parts for the extruder?

Colm: Just remember this tubing is a bit thinner than sch. 40 pipe, so have to be in "tack mode" when welding brackets on this tubing, I recommend only use MIG welder, if you penetrate tubing then you now have created as we say in Texas: a "boat anchor" or a "door stop".

What is the main advantage to using steel tubing rather than copper? Isn't copper cheaper and better at transferring heat? I must be missing something...

Bob, good point, but copper pipe might be a bit weak and tricky to find without a seam line. Thick tubing retains the heat well

Good day Tim. I am in search of the four machinery. I am from Mozambique Maputo.

I am looking forward to starting recycling plastic for gardening resources. Please help.
