PLA Injection Molding

Another possible recycling process for PLA scraps is to utilize an injection molding machine by substituting pellets for shredded scraps. 41 Cooper has a Morgan-Press machine, a production-ready injection molding machine capable of creating high-quality parts. In order to test the functionality, molds must be designed with holes for the alignment pins, a divot for injection, and volume to surface-area cooling considerations.
