Plastic artificial rattan extrusion machine for furniture
Artificial rattan is usually made from plastic materials like PVC, polyethylene, or polypropylene. The raw plastic pellets are melted and extruded into the rattan shape.
Extrusion machines feed the plastic pellets into a hopper which leads to a turning screw. The screw pushes the material through a heated barrel, melting it.
The molten plastic is then forced through a die with the desired profile shape (round, oval, flat) which forms the rattan strand.
The strand goes through a water bath to cool and harden, then runs through puller rollers to straighten and smooth the surface.
Typical extrusion machine capacity is 50-500 kg/hr depending on the size. Screw diameter, heating zones, and die design all factor into output.
dies can create solid or hollow rattan strands, as well as curved, knobby, or textured surfaces to mimic natural rattan look.
Secondary equipment can cut and print the rattan for desired length and color patterns. The strands are assembled into furniture frames or woven panels.
Key components are the hopper, screw, barrel, die, cooling bath, and pullers. Process monitoring and control systems are critical.
These extrusion lines run continuously and are common in factory settings for high volume production. Various grades are available for indoor/outdoor use.
