Agricultural product accessories production process

Whether it is a production of thousands or large-scale production of millions, Elimold can provide a full range of agricultural molding solutions to meet various requirements. Equipped with more than 40 injection molding machines ranging from 60 tons to 1000 tons, it can handle parts of various sizes. Elimold also partners with specialized suppliers of hot runner systems, allowing us to meet the tightest tolerances, provide design flexibility, and reduce production cycle times. However, production process control also plays an important role in manufacturing high-quality parts. You can find our production process solutions below:

  1. Design Preparation: Create detailed product designs and mold specifications.
  2. Mold Fabrication: Skilled toolmakers craft molds with precision and expertise.
  3. Material Selection: Choose suitable plastic material based on agricultural requirements.
  4. Injection Molding Process:
    • Clamping: Securely close the mold halves using hydraulic or mechanical force.
    • Injection: Melt plastic pellets in the machine and inject into the mold cavity.
    • Cooling: Allow the plastic to cool and solidify within the mold.
  5. Mold Opening and Ejection: Open the mold and eject the solidified component.
  6. Post-Processing:
    • Trimming and Deflashing: Remove excess material and refine the final shape.
    • Secondary Operations: Perform additional processes like drilling, assembly, or finishing.
  7. Quality Control and Inspection:
    • Visual Inspection: Check for surface defects and imperfections.
    • Dimensional Checks: Measure parts to ensure they match specifications.
  8. Packaging and Shipping: Package finished components for distribution to agricultural businesses.

Plastic Injection Molding Materials

Our high-out automated process lines can manufacture products from virtually any engineering, commodity and specialty plastic material. While we can work with just about any thermoplastic resin, plastics we use most often to produce agriculture industry-specific parts and assemblies include:

  • Nylons
  • Acetyls
  • Polyethylene
  • Polystyrene
  • Polypropylene
  • Polycarbonate

Advantages of Injection Molding in Agriculture

  1. flexibility. As manufacturers, we can choose the mold design and the type of material to be melted as the main ingredients of the product. Therefore, regardless of complexity, we can supply all types of parts vital to the agricultural sector.
  2. efficiency. Once we set up the process with the relevant molds and materials, the entire cycle moved quickly, producing thousands of parts per hour. Our machines are also very energy efficient, so we pass these savings on to our customers.
  3. Quality consistency. As we mentioned before, the agricultural industry takes quality and regulations very seriously. As a result, we can tightly control the parameters of the process to ensure that even if we produce thousands of products an hour, they are all of the same high quality as Reliant.
  4. Great value for money. After we develop the mold for the manufacturing process, the production cost is relatively low, which is one of the reasons why more farmers are turning to injection molding to meet their operational requirements.

Applications in Agriculture

The agricultural industry requires durable and reliable plastic parts that can withstand harsh outdoor conditions and repeated use. These components are used in a variety of applications including crop irrigation systems, livestock equipment and storage solutions. Elimold produces high-quality buckets, feeders, spoons and other plastic products. Here are some examples of parts we produce for our partners in the agricultural sector:

  • bucket
  • Lawn mower body
  • Spiral hopper
  • septic tank
  • poultry feeder
  • Pet water fountain and chow tower
  • Beef stick casings
  • Stock tank

With years of industry experience and a strong commitment to quality, we have become a trusted partner to agricultural businesses across the country. Whether you require one-of-a-kind components or high-volume production, we have the expertise and resources to meet your needs.
