Egg Cup in recycled polypropylene !

20/07/2017 at 17:06

Hello everyone,

I had a presentation of the injection machine to do for a festival happening in an ecofriendly farm this month. I tried to think about a product fitting with this topic and i told myself: Why not to do some egg-cups 🙂 ?

The mold is made from casted aluminium in foundry sand. all the patterns are done with polypropylene, mixing different colors.

Wow. That’s cool!
A food-related product that does not have to be food safe 😉

Great work on that mold @tafnstuff.. While not ideal, that flashing looks pretty epic as is. Do you reckon cast aluminium is a viable material for further molds?
Have I missed a topic on the mold?

@timslab, Yes i did a topic called Aluminum Melting in “research about plastic”.

Casted aluminium especially is interesting because it is a super cheap way to get a mold! Compared to a CNC process it’s a lot of time to get it but i think you can get some shape with foundry you couldn’t get with CNC machine. At the end your object really looks handicraft made, that can be a quality, or not !
