Building an Injection Molding Machine

Similar projects worth following
The goal of the project is to develop an modular, easy to build and inexpensive machine by using standard components.

A-Sample: [finished ]
functional prototypes, usually with limited scope of service and low degree of maturity

B-Sample: [finished]
functional, basic prototypes with full scope of service and a high level of maturity. They may be created using pilot tools.

C-Sample: [ONGOING]
fully functional sample manufactured with series production tools

Development of an Benchtop Injector for making plastic parts by injecting molten plastic into an aluminium mold. 

The main field of application will be Education-purposes, small batch production and prototypes. Mainly for parts which need a higher durability or lower cycle time than 3d-Printed parts.

The side effect is a lot of fun by building the machine :-)
