If you are relying on a blow molding machine for your business and a part wears down or breaks, it is essential to replace it with something of superior quality. Unless parts work correctly, you can expect a compromise on the machine’s operation and the quality of the finished product. The price you pay for a machine part depends on several factors. For instance, parts having to do with stretch blow molding are typically more expensive due to the increased complexity of the stretch blow molding machine. Continue reading →
As with any process involving the use of machinery, safety is paramount. Extrusion blow molding is a perfect example. Using an extrusion blow molding machine, an operator must have extensive safety training. By following all the extrusion blow molding steps correctly, a manufacturer can produce a superior-quality product without any risk to the individual performing the work. Continue reading →
Injection blow molding is one of three manufacturing processes used to form hollow plastic into viable finished products. In the injection blow molding process, a manufacturer produces a large quantity of hollow bottles, jars, and a host of other narrow and wide-mounted products. In this case, polymer gets injected onto a core pin, which then rotates to a blow molding station. There, the mold gets inflated and cooled.
The majority of the bottles that are produced are on high speed blow molders. Some of the most common bottles are for juices, carbonated soft drinks, water, energy drinks, dressings, sauces, oils, cleaners and many more. In order to ensure the quality of these products leak testing is performed to check that each bottle will seal and holds pressure.
Although stretch blow molding produces a variety of products, it is best known for the production of PET bottles used for juices, sports drinks, water, and similar products. First introduced in the early part of the 1970s thanks to advanced materials and techniques, it is now what manufactures prefer among the different types of blow molding for making bottles for carbonated beverages.
