Whatever stage you are at – whether you just have an idea or are ready with drawings for a formal quotation we can meet your needs.
As blow moulding specialists we can carry out the three main types of blow moulding – extrusion, injection and injection stretch blow moulding. The basic process is that the plastic is heated and melted down so that it forms a parison or preform.
The basic process is:
1) Melting – this is done using an extrusion or injection moulding machine to produce the heat in order to melt the thermoplastic.
2) Plastic formation – the next stage is forming the plastic through head and die or in an injection mould.
3) Blow Moulding – Air pressure is provided using a compressor which ‘blow’ air into the mould resulting in the plastic shaping the mould as the finished product required.
