Indian Startup – Production line suggestions

28/05/2019 at 18:50

Hello, I am Akash Jayakumar from India and I have just completed my undergrad and some of us together have started a plastic recycling startup, <b>R-Cube Plastics Pvt Ltd </b>aiming to make the world a better place. We are currently in our R&D and prototyping phase in which we are adding an additive to increase the strength of recycled plastic products.

We have won a grant from the Indian government and have planned to start our first production line with our very own raw material (An additive+Recycled plastic) to make lumbers out of the line. We were greatly inspired by precious plastic’s video of making a beam. If we are able to make a high volume production lumber (Which is a huge hit in the UK) we will be able to products like chairs, tables, benches etc.

We have a tentative production line in mind but we need an expert like you to optimise that design for us. The production line (raw materials – pellets) planned was
<b>Extruder –> Die </b>(with storage space and a rectangular output) <b>–> Cooling </b>(with small water tank) <b>–> two rollers</b> (the lumber will be sent in-between to maintain its thickness) <b>–> Cooling</b> (with a longer water tank) <b>–> Cutting</b> (We have not decided how to cut it)

<b>PS: </b>If you know a better way to do recycled plastic lumbers kindly let us know.

Hi Akash. My friend has taken up plastic waste in food industry as her topic for final post graduation project in NID. I am helping her with collecting information.  I am a designer too, working in Delhi. We have a long term plan of creating plastic waste collection centres all across the country. We have so many questions to ask. Please connect with us.  Write to me on [email protected]
