Billions of plastic containers are produced each year using extrusion blow molding. Industries such as food service, pharmaceuticals, and the automotive industry all make use of blow molded containers. Among the reasons that blow molding plastic containers has become so widespread are the low production costs and the versatility in the finished products.
What Goes Into Producing Custom Blow Molded Containers?
Custom blow molded containers can be produced in a diverse array of finishes, shapes, and structural designs that set a product apart and give it a competitive edge. In addition to the aesthetic values, blow molding can ensure that your container functions exactly as it was intended to. Blow molding allows more variation in wall thickness within a single part. Using a process called parison programming does this. This process allows the machine to vary the mandrel/die gap during extrusion and create varied wall thickness. This means that your product will bend or remain rigid, as it should.
Extrusion Blow Molding Mold Manufacturing
Molds for extrusion blow molding can be manufactured from less expensive materials than those for processes such as injection molding because the pressures required by EBM are significantly lower. Western Case is able to pass this cost reduction on to the customer and put custom blow molded containers within the grasp of even a medium to small company.
Limitations to Blow Molding Plastic Containers
While blow molding plastic containers offers more design capabilities than some other processes, there are some fundamental limitations. These limitations may change slightly depending on the materials being used, but most are fairly standard. When deciding on a design, it is wise to steer clear of sharp corners and sections that extend out too far because the parison may become too thin in those areas. Overly large, flat surfaces may also become an issue as they can be prone to warping.
In a world where time is money, having your product when you need it can make or break a business. When it comes to durable products, fast and efficient manufacturing, and budget friendly production costs, custom blow molded containers can keep you ahead of the competition.

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.
