    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.
