What is it?
The Compression machine allows us to take larger amounts of shredded plastic and heat it to specific temperatures while applying pressure. It's basically an oven with a car jack inside it.
This machine has five primary components: the frame, the PID controller electronics, the oven's heating elements, the oven's insulation, and a car jack platform. The design is based off of Precious Plastic's V3 machine.
The frame was constructed from metal salvaged from CAR. The car jack and platform was salvaged from CAR as well. The oven was purchased from HGR Industrial Surplus. The PID controller was purchased from Ebay.
