The many design capabilities of blow molding plastic containers changed production for many industries. The auto, food service, and medical industries are just a few that benefit from parts produced by plastic molding. Perhaps the most innovative changes of all have come in the form of custom blow molded containers.
How Are Custom Blow Molded Plastic Containers Made?
The process of blow molding begins with forming the plastic into a parison, which is a narrow, thin tube with one end left open. The parison is inserted into a custom mold designed for a specific product. When forced air goes through the open end, the parison inflates and fills out to match the detailed mold.
After the plastic has cooled, the hardened part is removed. There are some significant benefits to using this process. Production cost is quite low. It takes a minimal amount of time, and although standard shaped containers can be produced, it is quite easy to design different molds to make custom blow molded containers.
Using blow molded plastic containers has proved to be a money saver for many industries because reducing cycling and design times means a reduction in production costs. Besides this, a lightweight plastic cuts the cost of transportation or shipping.
Helping The Environment
Not every type of plastic can be recycled, but there are many that can. The process of plastic molding can fulfill this need because it is so incredibly versatile. In working with a design team, you can choose a material suitable for recycling.
Considering their many uses, low production costs, and durability, it is no wonder that plastic is used in many applications. No matter what type of container you need or what its intended purpose, the designers at Western Case Inc. can produce custom blow molded containers to suit your needs.
