Precious Plastics Shredder
As a member of Norwich Hackspace sometimes ideas are discussed that are out of the ordinary
Another member and myself have taken it upon ourselves to take on the plastic waste issue and reuse and recycle plastic on a local level.
Take a look at the precious plastics website for more details. https://preciousplastic.com/
The first machine to build is the plastic shredder which shreds plastic into flakes which then can be processed into products.
Method 1. heating in an oven and compressing into a mold or former
Method 2. heating and injection molding into a machined or fabricated mold.
I am currently working on a injection machine which should be up and running in the new year.
