I and a few other people have the idea of a pizza baker recycle machine.
This is like a combination of a sheet press, compression machine, and extrusion machine.
Basically there is a conveyor, a heating system, a roller, and a cooling system.
Here is the video of the machine actually working except it is making pizza:)
This machine should be easy to build because it’s already used by Domino Pizza. Not like other PP machines.
I will list some pros below.
More time-efficiency than sheet press/compression machine. Runs continually. More sustainable business model.
Easy to develop. Just some hacking.
Some companies already sell pizza bakers. The purpose is just a little different
Very important: Bake pizza if needed.
Some cons too.
Might need two people to run the machine
There is no blueprint or anything. Be the first one to try.
Is it possible to collect enough plastic to keep the machine moving
Can’t bake pizza and plastic at the same time. Fumes. Unsafe.
Maybe more. Reply to this.
Although there are many cons, the pros outweigh the cons now. There is a HUGE demand for developing this machine.
Perhaps someone or I can by the Pizza machine and do some hack
