Hydraulic Injection Molding Machine

I was looking for a ready made hydraulic pump/cylinder setup like in a log splitter when I cam across this 5 ton hydraulic press.

 

There are many different brands, and designs available but generally between 300 and 500USD and 5 to 7 tons.

 

If you used the Precious Plastic extrusion hopper, and barrell and used a piston like the injection mold machine, you could get a fairly good professional hydraulic injection mold machine for less than 1000USD.

What do you think?

Hello!
Very interesting idea!

it will be great to combine extruder and injection to avoid! the manual refill !
