What are you buying your inventor this year? I bet he or she would love to find a hand-operated injection molding machine under the Christmas tree.
To maintain accurate temperature setpoints, it includes a dual-display digital temperature controller with thermocouple feedback. Despite its compact size, the model 20A is a very capable machine, according to Warobi, LNS Technologies president. The injector features a heated barrel with a manual ram and a full 0.5 cubic inch resin shot capacity. It works with steel, aluminum or epoxy molds and can operate with a variety of plastic resins including ABS, acetal, LDPE, PP, PS, PVC, and TPEs. In the field, a user would attach the PIM-Shooter (essentially an injection unit) to a drill press, tightening the shaft into the drill press chuck.
The model 20A PIM-Shooter sells for $595 and includes a sample aluminum mold and 10 oz. supply of polypropylene pellets and pellet dispenser, purging block, safety glasses and gloves so you can begin molding as soon as you get the machine.
