How are appliances made in a factory?

There are a lot of kitchen appliances we use nowadays. Every passing day we are getting new appliances for various works in the kitchen, and as soon as you get a new appliance, there is a new model of that same appliance. The technology is one of the primary reasons behind these fast developments and current day state you can have your complete kitchen filled with appliances. From mixing to cooking and to washing, everything is done by one or the other appliance. Now let’s talk about how these kitchen appliances are made in a factory.

Now every kitchen appliance whether a mixer, juicer, hand blender, dishwasher or any other, all these have different methods to be built. Since each appliance uses different parts and all those parts are of different size so no two appliances can be made the same way. Due to this, we’ll tell you how an appliance is generally made in a factory.

  1. So most kitchen appliances have plastic out casing, and that is one thing which we see first, but it is made almost in second last stages.
  2. First, comes the inner parts of an appliance. If we talk about a mixer, then the motor is going to be the first thing which is made in the first place then only anything else. Now that motor is made with good coil and other metallic parts so that it can withstand the heat which will produce during its high-speed rotation.
  3. After that, a speed controller is made which helps in turning the mixer on at different speeds. Then outer casing of the mixer is made which is made of high-quality polycarbonate material which isolates electricity. This prevents people from getting electric shocks while using it. After this rubber seals are attached manually so that every part gets fixed at its place and no vibrations are there while the motor is turned on.An interesting story of a kitchen appliance is a stand mixer. Kitchenaid, the leading manufacturer in the United States, had a terrible incidence in 2006, where around 100 units of their premium model commonly known as kitchenaid Professional 600, were shipped without undergoing the ‘electric shock’ test. Due to this around ten customers had to deal with injuries after use. The company was sued, and settlement money was paid to all of them.
  4. Now if we talk about the jar or mixer then it is made with high-quality plastic and most of the time it is made transparent so that people can look at the working of blades. These jars are made using machines which spill liquid plastic over a mold and then it is made cold. After that, the mold is separated from plastic, and we get the jar. The mold usually has some markings of measurement and these markings also get’s printed on the jar.

The blades are made with melting metal alloy and forming them into the correct shape. Then the strips go through various solutions and chemicals to make them strong. After that, those are polished and sharpened and again polished. Finally, everything is assembled (mostly by hands). The blade gets fitted in the jar, and the motor part is assembled in a separate casing. That helps to take out the jar to wash and for another purpose.

Most of the kitchen appliances are made in this general way. But still, every appliance has its specific way which a company always follow to make the best product.
