A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11878448B2) discloses a method for producing objects made of polymeric material, specifically semi-crystalline materials with defined melting and crystallization temperatures. The process involves melting the polymeric material, cooling it below the melting temperature, and then using a severing element to cut a dose from the material flow. The dose is then shaped in a mold between male and female forming elements to create the final object. The method ensures that the dose has a temperature lower than the melting temperature during the shaping process.

Furthermore, the patent details additional steps to enhance the process, such as accelerating the flow of polymeric material to increase the advancement speed, using conditioning fluids like water or diathermic oil to remove heat, and thermally conditioning the material to maintain it within specific temperature ranges. The method also includes deforming the material at temperatures above the crystallization start temperature and controlling the direction and acceleration of the material flow. These innovative steps aim to optimize the production of objects from polymeric materials, ensuring efficiency and quality in the manufacturing process.
