A Guide to Plastic Recycling Machines

Some companies have already invented machinery that can help recycle plastic waste and transform them into useful products. Locally dumped plastic waste are now being recycled by these newly invented plastic recycling machinery which can benefit communities and make their plastic waste useful.

This simple plastic recycling machine is made with only basic tools and materials and that is why anybody who has the capacity can easily build it to help their community recycling plastic waste.

Extrusion, injection, compression, and shredder are the four types of plastic recycling machines that were developed for recycling plastic waste.

With the extrusion machine, a continuous process is used where plastic flakes are inserted in the hopper and extruded into a line of plastic. The resulting line of plastic can be reused into a new raw material in applications such as 3D printing filaments, granulate, or even spun around a mold.

The injection machine heats up plastic flakes and then injects them in a mold to create small objects. Computer numerical control is used in order to mill or weld these plastic molds.

In compression machines, a carjack is used to compress plastic heated in a oven, into a mold. If you need to make large and solid objects using recycled plastic, then the machinery to use is the compression machine.

Shredding machines shred plastic into flakes that is used in the three other machines. There is a selection of the type of output that you want to have from your shredder which includes the size that you want and which can be done by changing the sieve inside the machine to create different patterns and processes.

What is great about these machines is that they are easy to build, and there are tutorials provided online that will help interested people to learn how to make them, and not only how to make the machines, but your will also be taught how to create objects made out of plastic from your recycled shredded plastic, from the machines which you have also created yourself.

If you already constructed your machine, you are not ready to create objects from the plastic wastes that you have gathered. It will allow you to create useful things from plastic like tools, lamps, and raw material for other projects. If you go online you will find people who are sharing with others their creations from recycled plastic made by the machines which they have also created themselves, thanks to the tutorial given for free. Some of the projects that are on display are expanding fruit bowls, custom knives, and parts washer prototypes.
