How To Mold Candles
- Morgan is the inventor of the first candle making machine, candles have been produced by molding machines. Even though manual machines are still used by some companies.
- the molding of candles by molding machines covers a lot of work because the machines are designed to make candles in groups ranging from 50-500per load. The whole process takes about 30minutes per load.
- Prior to the pouring of the wax, the wick is pulled through the tip of the mold. This tip has a hole in it through which the wick passes from a spool located beneath the entire molding machine. The molds, which are made of tin, have polished interior surfaces and are slightly tapered for easier ejection of the finished candle.

- The wax is cooled to slightly above its melting point and poured into a molding table located above the molds. The wax then works its way into each mold; the molds are preheated so the wax will flow evenly into them. After the wax is poured, a jacket around each mold is filled with cold water to speed up the solidification process. Once the wax has solidified, the finished candles are pulled upwards out of the molds, allowing the wicks to again thread through the molds in preparation for the next load of candles. The wicks are snipped, and the process begins again. Excess wax is trimmed, collected and re-used. The continuous molding process is used to make Cylindrical, Tapered or Fluted candles as long as they can be easily ejected from the mold.
