Introduction to Injection Blow Molding Machines

Injection Blow Molding

Every year, injection blow molding machines produce billions of plastic products. While you might have a good idea of how the process works, you may not have a lot of information on the machines themselves.

Known as IBM, injection blow molding machines have a key advantage in that they can handle large production runs. Even when producing intricate parts, IBM machines are always reliable and efficient. That results in precision products every time.

Before purchasing an injection blow molding machine, there are several things you should know. Included are the specifications for the product, the shot size, and the final weight. Also, because every product is unique, you should select a machine based on the material you use, whether that is LDPE, HDPE, nylon, PP, and so on. For lightweight plastic products short in length and with single layers, these machines are perfect.

Incredible IBM Machine Options

By doing business with a reputable IBM manufacturer, you will have all the help needed to make the right decision.

  • Inverted Head – Of all injection blow molding machines on the market, the Inverted Head is by far the top choice. The reason is that all hydraulics sit underneath the mold in the base portion, which eliminates any risk of contamination to the mold or finished product. With a broad range of choices, a reputable manufacturer has the exact IBM machine for your specific needs.
  • Inverted Head Hybrid – This IBM machine shares similarities with the standard Inverted Head with the exception that it runs on hybrid electricity. In other words, the screw is entirely electric, while the main motor has servo assistance.
  • Inverted Head Full Electric – The same standard Inverted Head machines also come in a full electric option.
  • Non-Inverted Head – Available in three unique models, the design of these IBM machines consists of the hydraulics above the head. They also come with an electronic gearbox that produces precision rotation.
