Tealight Shape candle making machine
1. A brief of the candle making machine
My moulding machines are specially designed for making candles of various forms.
2. Structure and Performance of tea-light candle making machine
The machine is composed of water tank, machine frame, hand wheel, spindle, bevel gear, lead screw, cross beam, push-off tube and candle moulding tubes, etc.
2.2.1 Water tank, candle moulding tube enable the fluid wax to solidify by means of circulating water in the tube.
2.2.2 Aluminum heads and push-off tubes are used for the forming of the candle tip and the push of the candle from the candle moulding tube.
3. Installation and Test run
The machine is a movable design and need no fixed foundation just place the machine smooth and steady.
Check carefully if any spare parts are turning loose or tends to fall off, and clean the accumulated dirt on all parts of the machine. Fill oil on all lubrication points. Candle moulding tubes shall be smeared with small amount of lubricant or white Vaseline oil. Raise and lower the cross beam of the unloaded machine several times, if it's very flexible to be started and in normal operation, then swing the crank handle to lower the cross beam to the stopping position.
4. Operation Process
4.1 Rotate the hand wheel to making cross beam fall to the lower stopping position.
4.2 Pour the molten wax liquid into the slot of the water tank. When the wax liquid half solidfies, dump the residual wax liquid. .
4.3 When the wax liquid in the candle moulding tube completely solidities, rotate the hand wheel, through movement of bevel gear, aluminum head, etc, the tea-light candle will be pushed off from the moulds.
4.4 The candle which you needed will be placed on the top of the mould, then please take it off from the top of the mould and store it in any place which it is ready to store the candle.
4.5 At last, please kindly wick the candle by your self, so it will be the perfect candle you want.
5. Description for the tea-light mould
The candle mould will be designed based on the specification of the candle supplied by my customers. There is a aluminum head which is connect with the push rod, and there also have a pin which will place a hole in the tea-light candle and the pin will be placed through the aluminum head.
In order to produce the candle, when the wax turn into solid, rotate the hand wheel, the aluminum head will push the candle off from the mould, at this time, the mould and pin are unmoved and the aluminum head moves just like a piston.
