What is Blow Molding Exactly?
Blow molded products are products that are made of plastic. Blow mold manufacturers create these products by first making a mold of the design or shape. After crafting the design, a cast is made to hold the heated plastic material. Once the liquid plastic is poured into the cast or mold, air is blown into the mold and then hard pressed to seal the shape. Extrusion blow molding creates the desired hollow plastic shape.
Blow Molding from A – Z
Like any project, you must have a blueprint, or some idea, of what you want to design before molding. The first step to a great design is to sit down and visualize what you want to create and put it on paper. When you have done this, you have begun the process to manufacturing your product idea.
Below are some necessary things to consider before you craft your design.
