This invention relates to ‘an improved plastic
moldingapp'aratus and method.
More speci?cally the invention pertains to an
improved apparatus and method of this ‘kind
which is particularly adapted to mold and sub~ $1
stantially integrally unite either thermosetting or W
thermoplastic materials to a previously set or
between the cavities of the die sections ‘l B and l I_.
In the illustration shown, this part comprises a
solidi?ed or cured plastic tube M in portions of
which it is desired to form a partition I5 and a
reinforcing lining l6. Mandrels Hand 118 are in
serted into the upper and lower ends respectively
of the tube either ‘before or after the latter is dis
posed in the die. The adjacent extremities of the
mandrels I‘! and 18 are suitably spaced apart to
thermosetting or thermoplastic material.
One of the main objects of the invention is the 10 predetermine the thickness of the partition [5 and

character by which plastic articles can be con

molding or extruding operations between which
the previously molded plastic is cured or set.
Another object of the invention is the provision
of an apparatus and method of this kind by which
parts of a plastic structure previously molded or
extruded in lengths exceeding that in which they
if desired, be cut away, as illustrated at l9 in Fig.
1, to provide for thickening of the wall of the mm
