A little while ago I started a website called ‘Manufacturing Ops’ that was dedicated to interesting manufacturing process videos I found on YouTube. I have since wound up that project and plan on using this blog to do something similar but not as a ‘video-a-day’ concept as Manufacturing Ops was.
This is where it all starts for me. I fell down the manufacturing video ‘rabbit hole’ when I wanted to see how a tunnel gate worked. I found this animation from Ziling Enterprise of their GRF-1 tunnel gate. It is a simple animation showing the injection molding cycle in cross-section including filling and de-gating.
