Introduction to Injection Moulding: 12th April 2023
Join us at our Plastics Recycling Hub at The Deep End and try your hand at plastic recycling and injection moulding!
Want to learn about plastic recycling and give injection moulding a go? Well, look no further!
Join us at The Deep End for a 2-hour session where you’ll learn about the ins and outs of plastic recycling, as well as how to use an injection moulder! We’ll start by exploring the different kinds of plastics and how to shred them using our granulator. Then, we’ll choose injection moulds and the colours you’d like to use and melt them with our injection machine, leaving with a finished item to take home on the day. We have a fun range of small moulds for you to choose from, including carabiners, animals and more!
By the end of this session you’ll have a better understanding of the what’s what of plastic recycling, as well an introductory understanding of the process of injection moulding recycled plastics using Precious Plastics machines.
