How to Achieve Perfect Plastic Parts

The adage “If it can go wrong, it will go wrong” should never be true in the world of injection molding.  In fact, problems can be easily avoided from the very beginning as long you are working with a turnkey precision molding manufacturer.  Some companies opt to use an outside design firm to design the mold, then contract another vendor to build the mold (often these were offshore mold builders) and another to run the parts.  By separating these responsibilities, they often sacrifice control, accountability and quality.

Plastic Injection Molding 101 – Types of Plastic Molding

In today’s manufacturing environment, plastics are being used to make everything from automotive body parts to human body parts. Each application requires a special manufacturing process that can mold the part based on specifications. This article provides a brief overview of the different types of molding and their advantages and applications.

Blow molding – well suited for hollow objects, like bottles

The process follows the basic steps found in glass blowing. A parison (heated plastic mass, generally a tube) is inflated by air. The air pushes the plastic against the mold to form the desired shape. Once cooled, the plastic is ejected.

The blow molding process is designed to manufacture high volume, one-piece hollow objects. If you need to make lots of bottles, this is the process for you. Blow molding creates very uniform, thin walled containers. And, it can do so very economically.
