Product manufacturers that are familiar with blow molding manufacturing processes understand the many benefits and applications of blow molding. But for those who aren’t aware of how to make the best of the blow molding process or capitalize on the methods, the following information will be of value.
Blow molding is a manufacturing process in which plastics are formed into hollow containers like pop and water bottles or pill and shampoo containers. Types of blow molding methods include Injection Blow Molding, Injection Stretch Blow Molding, and Extrusion Blow Molding. But whatever the specific method, the applications for blow molding are virtually endless – and there are steps that manufacturers can take to make the most of the process from manufacturing as well as financial standpoints:
Go with larger molds and product runs for cost-effectiveness: In the interest of saving money over larger product volumes, it may come as a surprise that higher production quotas also become more cost-effective when using larger molds. Your company can benefit from a lowest cost-per-volume yield when using larger blow mold sizes!
Using standard molds will also save you money: Although it may be tempting to create unique product containers, it’s likely to cost your company more. To keep costs down and remain economically competitive, you’ll find that using existing standard molds is a sure-fire way to economize when manufacturing bottles and other blow-mold product containers!
The importance of advance planning when choosing colour: Blow molding offers near-endless options for creating coloured containers – something that can be important for product branding and marketing. But to take advantage of the colour options, plan well in advance to ensure all manufacturing criteria are kept as economical as possible. In short: Be sure to understand all manufacturing parameters and plan accordingly for best return-on-investment!
More on saving money – are overseas’ products really cheaper? In the interest of remaining competitive in a demanding marketplace, your company may feel inclined to have blow molded products made overseas. Caution is advised. Any number of shipping and freight charges, as well as tariffs, can be bundled into the overall price, thereby driving down your savings.
Endless product solutions: Any company that has a focus on the distribution of products such as beverages, liquid soaps, shampoos, detergents and more should be investigating the types of containers that can be produced through the blow mold processes. Blow molding offers a near endless number of product types – and customized solutions are available.
