Companies in the plastics industry and those that require specialized plastic products will appreciate the capabilities concerning different types of reheat stretch blow machines and the capabilities and advantages of each.
Blow molding (BrE molding) refers to a manufacturing process whereby hollow plastic parts are formed. Examples of blow molded plastic products in regular use include pop, juice, and water bottles – but the list of blow molded products doesn’t stop there. Other examples of smaller blow molded products consist of such things as liquid soap and shampoo bottles, whereas larger products include plastic tubs and drums. The applications and requirement for reheat stretch blow machines and the products they produce are extensive.
Included in the three main types of blow molding processes are Extrusion Blow Molding (EBM), Injection Blow Molding
(IBM), and Injection Stretch Blow Molding (ISBM). There are different advantages to each of the processes that meet different design and manufacturing criteria.
As well, there are different types of reheat stretch blow machines – a term that essentially refers to a machine that “reheats" and “stretches" a product into a desired shape and size, as demonstrated by the above examples of bottles and containers.
