Blow Molding creates a finished plastic molded product from melted plastic. A designer for either product production generally will only work on designs using one of those methods in manufacturing. A thorough understanding of the product is needed.
How a Blow Molded Product is Created
A blow molded product is created when hot molten plastic is pushed through a die. This hot plastic is actually stretched and cooled while it is still in the air. It can be tricky to maintain stability at all times.
Blow molding can offer value in that you can create many different shapes. For instance, in the production of shampoo bottles, there is an air pocket created inside the bottle. Blow molding uses a process that cuts down on wasted plastic because of the mold.
