It adopts low-speed large-twisting force hydraulic motor to drive the screw stem. The jetting plastic device is composed of cylinder, screw stem, hopper, jetting plastics, limit controller, screw stem rotary device, mobile cylinder of jet orifice and others. The specially designed screw stem makes plastics evenly melt into melted condition and jet the measured plastics into mould chamber at chosen pressure and speed through thermal current channel. It can get needed pressure and speed through proportion pressure and flow adjustment to be suitable to the demands of different resin kinds and different products.
The injection device has rotary device for convenience in loading and unloading of screw stem and washing charging barrel. The cylinder and the screw stem of the device both adopt high-quality nitrated steel. The non-return ring is fixed in the end of the screw stem to reduce the material flowing back along the screw stem.
The blow clamping moulding device belongs to hydraulic straight-pressing structure. It is composed of guide pillar, moving form board, supporting plate, lock-mould cylinder and others. In order to improve productivity and reduce shocking, moving mould speed adopts slow-fast-slow program. In order to meet the demand of large lock die force of injection plastics mould, on the upper of the injection clamping moulding cylinder there is a booster. After the two parts of the die are tightened, the limit switch sends a signal, the directional valve exchange it, the oil pump supplies oil to the upper chamber of the booster to make the piston of booster move down to increase pressure to reach the demand of high-pressure lock mould.
When injecting and blowing, the circuit of the energy storing device is jointed at the same time, supplement the leak of the oil circuit to ensure the pressure for locking mould. The clamping mould device has low-pressure die protection function. When the two parts of die have not tightened, the lock mould cylinder will not enter the increasing-pressure and locking mould condition. If there is hard material in die chamber at this time, the die will not close tightly. The electric control system will send alarm to make operators remove the trouble.
The injection blow rotary device is mainly composed of dividing mechanism of lifting cylinder, servo motor, turret, fork, roller, core axle and others.
