Plastic injection moulding is one of the most widely-used manufacturing processes on the planet, responsible for the manufacturing of such everyday plastic products as packaging, engine components, tableware and cutlery, furniture, electronics, bottle caps and lids, and much more.
If you’re in the injection moulding industry, you know that high productivity is crucial to staying competitive and that maximizing the efficiency of your production flow is one of the most reliable ways to keep productivity (and profit margins) high.
At DH Supplies, improving production flow is what we do best. Our conveyor systems can help you do just that for your injection moulding application.
Conveyor systems can play a part in several stages of the injection moulding process. Conveyors can feed raw plastic pellets into the hoppers to be heated and injected, and plastic parts fresh from their moulds can then be carried down the production line on conveyors to be manually processed and inspected. Conveyors are also ubiquitous in the assembly and packaging of finished products.
By using the right conveyor systems and making sure they’re operating at peak efficiency, each stage of the injection moulding process can be perfectly synchronized, minimizing downtime and improving productivity.
