Is Blow Molding the right choice?
Blow Molding is an umbrella term for forming plastic parts by inflating a viscous plastic tube, or parison, until it fills a mold and forms the desired shape. Blow Molding is the fastest and most cost-effective plastic molding process when production volume reaches 3,000+ parts per year. With an increasing focus on light-weighting and sustainability, it’s no wonder why engineers across the globe in nearly every industry have turned an eye toward blow molding for their production needs.
