The injection molder is used to make multiple small plastic parts using a mold. In the Maker Lab we have a LNS Technologies Model 150A injection molder.
Training Required: Basic Training
Workspace: Mold cavity maximum size is 1.25 cubic inches
Materials: Plastics- ABS, Acetal, Polpropylene, TEP, LDPE, EVA
Material Fees: We have limited plastic pellets available for use. We also have an aluminum epoxy frame (Epoxy Frame product page) for creating molds.
Common Terminology: Sprue- the channel used to inject the plastic into the mold. This creates waste material that is removed from the part once injected.
