The raw material is placed on the needed place and the mold is pressed on the plastic which gives it the desired shape and it is next cooled with cold air. Injection system. plastic films and sheet.the mold of the desired shape is fitted around the outside of the plastic. Extrusion produces items such as pipe/tubing. and wire insulation. . weather stripping. window frames. fence. Extrusion system. thermoplastic coatings.Plastics extrusion is a high volume manufacturing process in which raw plastic material is melted and formed into a continuous profile. Next air is blown into the tubes which dries it and molds it. Types of production system Blow molding system. deck railing.

Some machines are not functional. they pay all expenses spend on them. . conclusion Most machines work for over fifty years. So.  The instrument installed in the machine are unreliable. So. the factory may losing its valuable machines due to resting.

• Follow Safety precaution for raw material handling. . Perform tests other than melt floe index such as infrared spectroscopy. But. • I observe that the recycling process is only within the company. I recommend the recycling process needs to work with used up materials outside the company. adjusting the air speed of cooling system. • Write the product precaution in order to help the customer to handle and use the product properly. Recommendation Variation in the thickness can be avoided by centering the die in the extrusion line before every run. solvent test and flame test in order to assure the raw material is right for the desired order.
