welcome welcome to a new precious plastic video in a previous video we learned all about plastic the different types behaviors but in order to turn plastic into something new you need machines machines to work with plastic already exists from the plastic industry however their machines are not accessible very efficient and expensive and for this reason they don't like to play around or work with recycled plastic it might slow down their production or damage their
00:35
machines it's just too much risk getting new plastic is easier so we developed our own machines and they are based on the industry ones except these are affordable and work with recycled plastic before we start a development we did a big research on universal parts and resources so the machines are made with basic tools and materials that should be available anywhere in the world wherever you live and we share the blueprints and the instruction videos here online so anyone should be able to build them just to give you a heads up
01:06
if you want to beat the plastic industry with these machines on speed and efficiency it's not going to happen we're not aiming to produce a new cheap product every three seconds but we're somewhere between the big plastic industry and completely do it yourself aiming for a small-scale production you can compare it a little bit with a woodworker metal worker or ceramists like a like a craftsman for plastic so far we developed four different machines and each machine has its own function alright so here we have the shredder
01:36
machine and basically this machine chop your plastic waste into small flakes you can determine the size of this place by the mesh inside so you can make them bigger or smaller and these flakes are used in the machines to create new things here we have the extrusion machine it has a very specific output like this cable that comes out but you can use this to create 3d printer filament or new raw material which makes it very interesting it's a continuous process which means you can put plastic
02:09
in and it just keeps on going the downside is that it's more difficult to build this machine and it takes you all before you have to write temperature settings the upside is that once it's going you can just leave it and one thing which I really like if you put a lot of mixed colors in here it melts very well and it mixes together so you have one new solid color coming out that's a smooth line of plastic we have the compression machine basically it's an oven where you can apply pressure inside it's well suited for prototyping
02:40
and more solid objects but I also like to use it for experimenting because you have an oven with accurate temperature control so you can easily do experiments and try out the technique is not as quick as the others for production however it is very affordable and easy to make here we have the injection machine basically it injects plastic into a mold the machine is relatively easy to build and it's quite quick for production you put in some plastic it heats up and you squeeze it in a mold and what I really like about it is if
03:11
you make a detailed mold once you can easily replicate it and have a very detailed output do note that the objects you're going to make are relatively small it depends what you want to make on which machine you need but we suggest to focus on one technique first fully master that once you have it build another machine and all the machines are built in a modular way which means you can always upgrade and repair but also customize them for instance you could build a wooden hopper on your extrusion machine or have the shredder running on
03:42
wind power or maybe fully customize it to your needs we provide the basics but together with the community we can make them superior so if you want a machine but you can build it yourself because you're not that handy we should just define local machine builder I'm sure he can or post the topic in our forums where you can meet one if you're a machine builder and you're looking for a job go to the same topic you might find someone alright so the next stop we're going to pick one of these machines what's instruction video and build it you
