Design of Fuel Filter Casing By Single Plate Injection Moulding Die

Elambarithi.D, Anatha valampuri.M.R, Karthikeyan.M, Manikandan.S, Arunkumar.G

At present the large scale industries are manufacturing the fuel filter casing by means of split pattern injection moulding die. This is not much compact for the small scale industries and the medium scale industries for its production. In our project we are manufacturing the fuel filter casing by means of single plate injection moulding die. This is more compact for the small scale industries and the medium scale industries for its production of fuel filter casing. The removal of pattern is also easy by using of this single plate injection moulding die and also the manufacturing cost will be low. By inducing of high hardened material for the cavity plate and by inducing new plastic material for the component, we can able to increase the strength of the die as well as the component.
