This is it main page for the benchtop injection molding machine. Here you will find information about the plastic injection molding machine being developed. The machine is made from the HF "mini" line of machinery such as the mini-mill and the 8x12 mini lathe.

Since the HF mini-mill is capable (under CNC) to produce 3D injection molds, it works in harmony with our other machines being developed to serve the plastics prototyping needs of medical device manufacturers, inventors and designers.

This machine was developed (and is still in development) out of a need to be able to quickly and reliably create plastic prototypes for testing and product development purposes. We will continue posting pictures and articles as development continues. Plans to build this injection molding machine will be available once testing has proven its reliability.



Looking for mini-mill help and how-tos? How about lathe help and how-tos?

We're prototyping a benchtop CNC vertical mill using the DigiSpeed-XL interface card for Mach, Dart Controls and KB Electronics KBIC/KBMM 90VDC motor controllers, 1.5HP treadmill motor from Surplus Center and a R8-spindle head from the X2 mini-mill - not to mention Gecko servo drives and an entirely closed-loop system. Come take a look!
