Votive 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 Votive 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.
2.1.1 Water tank, candle moulding tube enable the fluid wax to solidify by means of circulating water in the tube.
2.1.2 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 Correctly mount the guide rail support. Level and string well the steel string bar. More the water tank back and forth to see if it can move freely. Run the unloaded machine. Rotate the handwheel to raise the cross beam slowly. Check if the lead heads can all enter the candle moulding tubes smoothly. If not, locating bolts may be adjusted.
4.2 Rotate the handwheel, the cross beam rises till the step of the lead head contacts with bottom of the candle moulding tube completely. Pour the molten wax liquid into the slot of the water tank. As the wax liquid half solidifies, dump the residual wax liquid. Pull the elevation handle of the second cross beam and let the second cross beam rise till steel wires emerge 10 ~ 15mm above the top of water tank. After the wax liquid solidifies completely, pull the second cross beam up-down handle, the second cross beam falls to the low stopping position. Rotate the handwheel, the first cross beam falls to the low stopping position. If there are still candles remaining in the moulding tubes just press the candle with hands and make them fall on the cross beam. Push back the water tank and let it rest lightly against the locating bolt. Rotate the handwheel, again raise the cross beam till the step of the lead head and the bottom of the candle moulding tubes contact completely.
