How They Are Made
Nylon Cable ties are carefully manufactured by cyclic injection molding method wherein nylon resins are melted and then injected into the mold cavity. It’s shape and size depend on the mold used during the manufacturing process. The molding process involves two sets of molds: the first half contains the locking mechanism called ratchet and the second half contains the tip of the cable tie that is inserted into the ratchet. These two molds are joined together and then molten nylon resins are injected into the cavity and into the space between molds. After injecting the molten nylon resins, it is allowed to congeal within the mold cavity. When ready, the first half of the cable tie is pulled from the mold followed by the second half then finally the space between the mold parts. When there are quality issues regarding the finished product, the mold cavity will be inspected for defects. If proven to have defects, that particular mold set is replaced by a non-defective one. If there are no defects on the mold cavity, other causes could be that there is an unclean machine mold pipe, a faulty pressure control of the machine, a recycled nylon or mixed plastic nylon were used or an inappropriate heat transfer from recycled matter.
