Cheaper Injection Moulding with Non-Recyclable Filler Materials

post-image

For my design, I am creating a commercial level automated injection molding machine that is capable of using filler materials.

I am designing it specifically for use with filler materials that aren't typically able to be recycled, such as resin photopolymers to reduce pollution.

I also intend for it to be used with recycled plastics, not requiring small pellets and instead being capable of using plastics of any shape smaller than 1cm diameter. This is allowed through its ram-style design.


Request:

Any advice on the construction of this machine or mould design is much appreciated.

A very ambitious project Jet and very specialised. People who could help send you in the right direction are Peter Roberts, Brent Balinski and Michael Sharpe. I suggest you try and contact them and the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre.

Hi Jet, hope all is well with you and your family. 

Congratulations on getting to the submission point of your MDP journey last Thursday. As a MDP teacher I know crazy busy those last few weeks have been. 

Your project looks really interesting and we would love to see where you got with it. We hope that being part of the UpRising initiative has been rewarding and meaningful for you. 

As we wrap up the trial phase of the UpRising initiative and head towards the awards night in November I have a few quick questions.  If you could answer these questoins in a comment below that would be so great. We want to understand how UpRising assisted you so that we can etter help next year's cohort of designers. We are also curious to know if there is anything further you would like to do with your project.


1.      What were two interesting things that you experienced or found as a result of being part of the UpRising? 

2.      How did UpRising help you with your project?

3.      What would you like to do with your project and what would help you get there?

4.      How did seeing other UpRising projects affect your designing and learning experience? 

5.      What would you like to see added to the UpRising initiative to better help next year's students?

 

One last thing, can you add in a ‘Start to Finish’ photo of your project? Stitch a photo of early drawing or prototype next to an image of your finished product and update your post with this image.

Congratulations once again and looking forward to seeing you in November. You have done an amazing job and we are very proud of the 2021 cohort. 

See you soon

Congratulations on all of your hard work this year and for being the first year 12 design students to be part of The UpRising.  The 8 judges have been busy going through all the major design projects to decide which projects should be awarded hundreds of dollars in seed funding and mentoring, to take their project to the next level. The judges have used a points system, 3 points for the project they felt was the most impressive, 2 points for a second outstanding project and 1 point for a project that really resonated with them. Three projects will be awarded Seed funding and mentoring 

  • First Place $1000 Seed funding

  • Second place 750

  • Third place 500


The winners will be assisted with the continued development of their project next year by the very cool company Nectir


We are holding an Awards night to announce the winners and we would love to have you all there. It’s online so you can join in from wherever you are. 6pm - 7pm Thursday evening 9th December. 


Click here to get your tickets. 


Looking forward to seeing you there.


Wishing you the best of luck with your final exams. Awards night is on the 9th December
