mold filling machine

step into the shoes of a factory worker and make these molds solo or as a team.

about the exhibit component

This activity shows you what happens inside an injection molder. Pull the lever to fill one of six molds with fluid. The molds represented are a clothes hanger, a comb, a Lego block, a fork, a flyswatter and a wing from a model airplane kit. All of the molds in these displays were once used in factories. In the manufacturing process, these molds would have opened and closed to form the objects. This component was originally designed for our How People Make Things exhibit.
