Design criteria and guidelines for realisation of moulds for ceramics production by low pressure injection moulding (three prototype moulds available)

On the basis of its own experience and of the other partners and RTD performers suggestions, BC Italiana has developed design criteria and guidelines for realisation of moulds for ceramics production by low pressure injection moulding of aqueous ceramic mixes.

The prototype moulds have been designed to be easily used in connection with the machine for low pressure injection moulding, developed by GOCERAM in the frame of the AQUIMCER project, but the used approach enable their assembling to different machines.

The prototype moulds have been purposely designed to produce, in agreement with the request of the industrial end-users involved in the project, respectively:
- A porcelain �cup with handle� in only one step (while the actual manufacturing process requires the separate production of cup and handle and subsequent handle attachment on cup);

- A porcelain round "pan with handle" in only one step (while the actual manufacturing process requires the separate production of pan and handle and subsequent handle attachment on pan);

- An alumina thread guide used in textile machines.

The gained experience, on these prototypes, enabled BC Italiana, to define general criteria for mould design and realisation.
