Abstract

The research consists of the design and automation of a pneumatic injector, applying LabVIEW software through an integrated Arduino hardware module, programming through an interface, the pressure that guarantees the geometric quality in the models obtained. The final result shows a piece designed in mass fraction with 40% polypropylene resin (PP), 40% recycled polyethylene terephthalate in the form of scales (R-PET) and 20% from cocoa pod husks ash (CPHA). Likewise, the platform allows to define and control the conditions of generation of the product, defining a pattern according to the type and the mass proportion between the resin of PP, R-PET and CPHA. In addition, the design of the mechanical and thermal elements, consisting of the piston and the system of clamp-type resistors, the pneumatic injection means and the raw material feed gate, improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the equipment.
