Comb Making Process by Molding Machine

The comb is constructed on a hydraulic injection moulding machine. All information about how it is used will be found where you buy this machine. The person who sells the machine will also give you full training to use it well. For this, you will not have to go out of training in any institute outside. Here we have provided some information about the comb through the machine, which can be helpful to you.

To make a comb, you must first put its raw material, polypropylene, i.e., in the plastic granules.

The machine is equipped with a heater, from which these grains of plastic pass through and melt.

After this, different types of mould are installed in the machine; you are starting the business of comb making to use a variety of comb combinations such as handled comb, big comb, small comb, etc. Therefore there are many types of combing mould available in the market.

This molten plastic reaches through an injection pipe until the comb’s mould is attached to it. Then it takes the form of a comb. 

After this, the machine has a cooling process, which works to cool the hot plastic in the mold. When it gets cooled, then the comb is taken out by opening it.

Simultaneously, the comb is finishing; as if some extra plastic is sticking in it, it is removed with the help of a scrap grinder.

Once the comb is made, it needs to be polished to make it attractive; apart from this, you can also add your brand’s name to the truncated comb.

A hot stamping machine is required to brand name on the comb. For this, make a stamp of your brand and fit it in a hot stamping machine and add it to the comb.

After completing this process, it is tested in the last, for which a micrometer is used.

In this way, the comb can be made very quickly with the help of machines.
