The plastic manufacturing industry is filled with a wide range of technical processes, some of which will be unfamiliar to many of you. Examples of this technical jargon include injection moulding, which is commonly used to produce extremely high levels of output - another is blow moulding.
First used at the end of the 19th century, blow moulding involves blowing hot air into semi-molten plastic. As the plastic expands a cavity is created around what is commonly a metal mould.
When Is Blow Moulding Used?
If you are looking to produce a plastic product that features hollow parts, we would always recommend the process of blow moulding. This is a process which can quickly produce both small and large hollow parts - ranging in capacity from 1oz to 1,000 gallons.
The process is commonly used by businesses from two industry sectors - packaging and industrial. For our industrial clients, extrusion blow moulding allows for the creation of products such as seat backs and air ducts. However, its most common use is within the packaging industry for the creation of plastic bottles.
New Extrusion Blow Moulding Machine
At Coda Plastics we are always looking to expand the facilities we have available at our Norfolk based factory. We are therefore delighted to have taken possession of a new extrusion blow moulding machine, which has allowed us to significantly increase our capacity for the production of plastic bottles and containers.
