I have been trying to source the parts for the extruder as I would like to produce beams. The machine and the screw are the hardest and most expensive parts.
would it work to use a piston to push the plastic powered by a hand pump hydraulic quarter power, the would mean not having to use the screw and motor.
correct, so the mould shouldnt be a problem with air as the plastic will be pushed up the mould until it reaches the stopper and be compressed.
I feel there may be an issue with air getting in the system on the extruder side
Im still trying to source the screw this side if it fails i will build thisToggle replies
