What are the different types of automatic EPS shape moulding machine?


The full name of EPS is Expanded poly. Styrene is a rigid porous plastic with many shapes and applications. It is most commonly used in fish boxes, consumer product packaging, and building insulation boards. So, how do these tiny plastic beads form a huge box or even a building material?

1.What is an EPS shape moulding machine?
EPS shape moulding machines are a kind of EPS machine that produce parts that have custom designed specifications like electronic product packaging after the block moulding machines producing large blocks of EPS that can be cut into shapes or sheets for use in both packaging and construction applications. The main proponents of an EPS shape moulding machine are Process Control Bachmann, PLC Pneumatic Control Festo, Hydraulic Drive Parker, Electrical Component Schneider, Process control Valves Gemü, Electrical Servo Drive Schneider and Gearbox Keb. A reliable EPS shape moulding machine is often equipped with a fast mould change system, proportional control for Steam & Air, De-loading and Stacking robot, Surface treatment mouldings and even electrical drive with knee lever. All of the components mentioned above are installed to achieve rapid movement with gentle movements, optional electric drive for faster movement, and proportionally driven steam and air controls, which are also meant to saves energy and shortens cycle time.

2.How many types of EPS shape moulding machine are there?
Generally speaking, there are two types of automatic EPS shape moulding machine, energy-saving type shape moulding machine and the basic type shape moulding machine. The most commonly used one is the automatic EPS shape moulding machine basic type, it can foam products of various specification, and the basic type EPS shape moulding machine also makes sure that they get low moisture content and stable size. The basic type EPS shape moulding machine can perform four operation modes which are fully automatic, semi-automatic, middle startup and manual operations. The basic type EPS shape moulding machine also adopts mechanical de-moulding and the de-moulding positions can be adjusted according to the thickness of the product. EPS shape moulding machine basic type adopts three kinds of safe protects such as door panel lock, pause switch, urgent stop to guarantee safe and dependable operation. The energy-saving type also foam products that have low moisture content, but with low energy consumption, short production cycle time and perfect stabilization of size. The energy-saving type EPS shape moulding machine also has various Interchangeable types of mould and good equipment compatibility, which also help to save mould cost.

3.What is the difference between different types of EPS shape moulding machines?

The most significant difference between the two types of automatic EPS shape moulding machines is the energy consumption and circle time. For example, the cooling water consumption of a basic type is about 20 to 35 kg per circle, but the water consumption of an energy-saving type is only 15 to 30 kg per circle. This fact also goes well in the steam consumption of these two, as a basic one tends to consume 3 to 4 kg per circle, the energy-saving type automatic EPS shape moulding machine consumes 2 to 3.5 kg of steam per circle. When it comes to the circle time of these two types, the difference is quite big, as the basic type turns to use 60 to 200 seconds to finish one cycle, the energy-saving type usually use only 38 to 60 seconds, and that is much quicker than the basic type. Based on these difference the output of these two is not on the same level as well, since the basic type can produce more products in one cycle than the energy-saving type.
