after I left the aerospace world, I got a job at a plastics company.
Id never thought much about how all that plastic stuff we
use gets made you know, like computer parts, car parts, medical
thingamajigs but I was about to find out.
if youve never seen how injecting molding works, let me be
of service. Imagine a giant airbrush that shoots hot, thick paint
into a small box of steel that has grooves, holes, and ridges inside
of it. After the thick paint (people in the biz call
oh well) cools off a little, the box opens up and
the part or product falls out. You know
what Im talking about, the thing that makes all the money!
But what got me was what happens after the job was finished.
They clean out the gun barrel
whatever, by pushing
the leftover residue out, and letting it fall onto the floor, making
a big blob!!!!...I was hooked! A couple friends of
mine wondered if we could move this stuff around while it was still
hot...so we did!!
a look around, have fun cause we do! Let us know if youve
got any questions.
